Many patients are often concerned about how long it might take to break in their orthotics. This is because new orthotics can feel unusual at first. While every patient’s situation varies, particularly depending on how often you wear your custom orthotics, it can usually take up to two weeks to get used to them.
However, if you want to comfortably break in your new orthotics, we recommend you wear them for one hour on the first day, two hours on the second day, and continue building this wear up gradually. This gets your foot used to the new pressure that your orthotics provide.
