Adjustments needed: I’m not quite sure what you’re trying to explain. However whenever a patient gets new orthotics sometimes they need to be adjusted. Obviously these types of pains and discomfort should not occur. Give your doctor the opportunity to adjust them. Discontinue using them until you see your doctor
