Foot Orthotics Accustomization Guide
Your orthotics must sit flat and level inside your shoes. If the bottom of your shoes is too narrow to allow the orthotics to sit flat and level, you may need to change your shoe gear or discuss other orthotic options with your health practitioner. It takes approximately ten days to become accustomed to your new orthotics. Follow this guide !
