Can You Modify Custom Foot Orthotics?

Custom Orthotics are specifically designed for your individual feet. After molds/images are taken, modifications are applied to fit your foot type and symptoms. When the orthotics are finished and dispensed to you it may take a couple of weeks to slowly break them in. Once this period is complete you should have symptom relief and functional support for years to come. So what happens if they just don’t fit just right or fail to relieve your symptoms?

Orthotics can be adjusted! They are made of materials which can be modified in office to remove areas of uncomfortable rubbing, an arch that feels too high, or a portion that feels too long. If the top covers are wearing out we will try to replace them in clinic or send them to a lab to have them professionally refurbished.

At Salt Lake City foot and ankle clinic we will do our best to work with your orthotics until they are comfortable, supportive, and help relieve your symptoms. Please give us a call if you have any questions at 801-274-9060.
