We DO NOT require a prescription for orthotics at our office. However if you plan on being reimbursed for custom orthotics by your extended health plan or claiming them as a medical expense, it is recommended you get a prescription before casting. Please call your insurance company to verify your coverage options. See the orthotics page for more info.
A New Patient examination is a thorough history, intake and muscle testing combined with soft- tissue manipulation to help the Doctor get their diagnosis and understand your case.
