Why should I have a re-assessment completed every 12 months?
- Wearing your Align Orthotics™ correctly, heals and strengthens. This will continuously create subtle improvements in your body alignment.
Habitual behaviours, activities, ageing, injuries, pregnancy, footwear, health changes and more can all have an impact on your body, which can impact your feet and body alignment. An annual re-assessment ensures you are walking and moving in healthy body alignment.
- At Align, we have the expertise and dedication to you to ensure that as your progress improves, so does your treatment plan. You don’t want to miss the next step!
- We need to ensure we evaluate the lifespan of your Align Orthotics™ and footwear. It’s really important for your health that we do so!
Align Orthotics™ typically last between 12-24 months. They can last longer, depending on several factors, including body weight, materials, footwear, and design. It is strongly recommended that we evaluate the wear of your Align Orthotics™ and footwear at least once per year so we can appropriately advise you if they should be refurbished or replaced. Often, the Align Orthotics™ will have been worn out for a few months before you notice they are not supporting your body alignment anymore, as pain is only a symptom of poor biomechanics, and this may go unnoticed if not evaluated by one of our Align Clinicians annually. Please don’t take at least having annual check-ups, for granted.
- Since you’re happy with your Align Orthotics™, you might like and benefit from a fresh, new pair.
If your Align Orthotics™ are in good condition, then getting another pair is helpful to maintain consistency in body alignment and healthy feet across a variety of styles of footwear. As you know, each pair of Align Orthotics™ are designed specifically for your unique body alignment, the footwear it’s going into, and the activity that footwear will be used for. For example, a pair that is designed for long periods of standing is typically much firmer than ones that are used at the gym for physical activity, where the movement is a lot more dynamic.
