People with abnormal arches (mainly flat feet) frequently need a foot orthotic. We make custom foot orthotics for our patients. The therapist begins by finding the neutral position of ankle and takes a cast of the foot, which will take about 20 minutes. The cast is then shipped to a company where the actual orthotic is made. It takes approximately 2-3 weeks to receive the orthotic.
Anyone can get custom orthotics. It does not require a prescription from a doctor. However, if a prescription is obtained, many insurance companies will cover the cost of the orthotics. The patient can also choose to pay out of pocket for the orthotics. The cost can range from $75-$125 depending on the type of orthotic that is ordered.
