We recommend you check your orthotics every 8-12 months!  Your custom orthotics are made with your biomechanics in mind.  They cater for your many differences in length, width, foot pronation and injury.  Over time, these specially made devices start to wear out.  The plates that sit under your arch start to loose integrity after a period of time and that will impact the prescription of your orthotics.  Kids’ foot orthotics will more often than not need changing in relation to the growth of your child.  As the foot grows, the plates become less effective. Remember to get your orthotics checked by your podiatrist on a regular basis to avoid any potential injuries!
