How Often Should You Replace Orthotics?

Do you suffer from foot pain? If so, the use of orthotics may help you. Dr. Shine John DPM, FACFAS of Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists explains more about the use of orthotics in this helpful video.


Orthotics are designed for daily use. If you are on your feet or participate in impact-related activities, it is very important that you wear your orthotics.


Some people wonder, “How often should orthotics be replaced?” This question varies greatly from person to person, especially depending upon how often you are on your feet and the types of activities that you participate in. Some people only change their orthotics once per year, while other people who wear them more extensively may need to refurbish or replace their orthotics on a more frequent basis.


No matter how much you are on your feet, you should not be in pain. If you would like to learn more about your orthotic options, contact an Austin foot doctor at Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists today.
