The adjustment period for custom orthotics varies from person to person. It typically takes anywhere from 2-4 weeks for your feet to become accustomed to the new support and alignment. It's recommended to gradually increase the duration of wearing orthotics each day, starting with a few hours and working up to full-day use.
The lifespan of custom orthotics depends on factors such as materials, daily usage, and the wearer's activity level. On average, custom orthotics last for 1-3 years before needing replacement. Regular check-ups with Dr. Ruiz can help assess the condition of your orthotics and determine when a replacement is necessary.
Coverage for custom orthotics varies from provider to provider and plan to plan. That said, many insurance companies will partially or fully cover the cost of custom orthotics if they're deemed medically necessary. We always recommend checking with your provider prior to scheduling, and if you have any questions about billing, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Our team is always happy to help!
