Wearing in your Orthotics

First things first...

Congratulations on making your Docpods purchase!

Now it’s time to take the next step and get them under your feet.

If you haven’t worn orthotics before, you might want to ease into them.

Orthotics change the way your foot functions and therefore will require a wearing-in period.

Begin by wearing your orthotics for 1-2 hours on the first day.


Orthotics should initially be worn 1-2 hours per day

Increase the time by 1-2 hours every day until they can be worn all day.

Occasionally, there may be some discomfort in the legs or back during the adjustment period. This is due to the newly aligned position of your body, and your muscles will take some time to get used to it. If this occurs, cut back the adjustment time by 30 minutes each day.

Only progress through the wearing-in procedure to your tolerance (don’t overdo it).

After about a week you’ll be ready to keep them on your feet all day every day!

When fitting either Ultra, Ultra Soft or Sports Docpods Orthotics, please ensure you remove all existing innersoles from your shoes where possible.

To make sure you are getting the ultimate comfort, ensure that the arch support of the Docpods Orthotic innersoles finishes just after the ball of your foot.
