Old Orthotics

Posted by Ed R on 3/20/03 at 11:49 (113642)

My Orthotics are about 3 yrs old, do the orthotics wear out? Or does the foot change shape that I would need to get new orthotics?

Thanks for any info

Hi

Yes orthosis can wear out. The materials that were used will determine if they need replacement. Leather orthosis will wear out . Some times the prescription will need to be changed. Some times the postings will wear out. It will very easy for your doctor to re-evaluate you and examine your present orthosis to see what exactly needs to done if any
