What to expect on you first visit

Second_visitDuring your first visit with us, you will be required to fill out an intake form. This form provides pertinent information for your visit.

Your initial appointment will usually last 45 min.  The time allotted is for a full biomechanical and gait analysis.  This entails an examination of the foot and leg alignment, range of motion testing, skeletal alignment, functional testing and a shoe evaluation. At the end of the assessment a treatment plan is discussed.

If you have insurance please check with the provider to see if you require a prescription/referral from a medical doctor.  You do not need one to be assessed however if your insurance requires one it is best to know before.

We will need to look at your legs from the knees down.  A pair of shorts would work the best or pants that can be rolled up past the knees.  Skirts and dresses are not optimal.

Please note that Alberta Health Care does not cover the cost of custom foot orthoses. It's your responsibility to cover the cost and investigate any extended coverage you may have. We will provide the necessary documentation for extended health care claims.

If you decide to have the orthoses made, a deposit of half is required prior to having them manufactured. We accept cash, cheques, direct withdrawals, VISA and MasterCard. Should you decide not to proceed with custom foot orthoses or your assessment determines that it is not warranted, an assessment fee will be charged at the end of the appointment.

Your orthoses will be ready for pick up in approximately 2-3 weeks, a second appointment will be booked to dispense your orthoses.
