Calgary Custom Foot Orthotics

Dr. Josh Lazzari, owner of South Calgary Family Chiropractic, can help you in your quest for custom fit orthotics here in Calgary.

If you have any foot pain or numbness, knee pain, hip or back pain, you may be a candidate for custom foot orthotics.

Even if you don’t have any pain, you may also be a candidate for the custom foot beds.

Let’s ask a simple question.   If you could stand on something and walk on something that was better and custom made for you, would you want to stand and walk on it?

Of course you would!

That is why custom orthotics are made, – to make corrections and give support.

Have you ever heard the argument that cavemen didn’t have orthotics and that they ran around barefoot over rocks and dirt?  Well, cavemen didn’t have to stand on concrete all day and then go to hardwood floors in the evening.  They also didn’t live as long as we do now.

If you are thinking about living to 100, seriously, I would recommend that you look after your feet and body and get custom foot orthotics.  Ankle pain, knee pain and hip pain is prevalent amoung the geriatric ages.  It is best to invest in your future body now rather than later.

Calgary Foot Orthotic Tips

Hey, I’m (Dr. Josh Lazzari) a patient/client at times, too.  When I am a patient/client, I have four burning questions:

  1. What’s wrong?
  2. Can I be helped?
  3. How much is it going to cost?
  4. How long is it going to take?

Therefore, as a provider, I want to be as clear and transparent as possible.  Let’s answer these questions!

 

1.  What’s wrong?

When you come into the office, a foot evaluation will be performed on your feet.  I will be doing a biomechanical exam and a gait analysis.  The results will indicate what’s wrong and I will provide a diagnosis.

2.  Can I be helped?

Depending on what’s wrong and the diagnosis, recommendations will be provided whether it is custom fit orthotics, chiropractic treatment or another health care professional or a combination there of.

3.  How much is it going to cost?

The prices of the orthotics are listed throughout the website.  I encourage you to click the other pages and get as much information as you can.  $297 for the first pair and $207 for any addition orthotics (for the same person).

4. How long is it going to take?

The biomechanical exam and gait analysis and foot casting will take approximately 30 – 45 minutes.  I send the results and the cast to a laboratory.  It will take 3 – 5 weeks to get the custom fit orthotics back to the office from your initial exam and casting visit.

But wait, there’s more!

Most insurance companies require a Biomechanical Exam and Gait Analysis Report, proof of manufacturing, a detailed breakdown of the cost and receipts.  Occasionally, they may want shipping and pickup dates.  All this will be provided for you and kept on your file.

A good idea would be to check out questions to ask your insurance company.  In some instances, you may need a prescription from a medical doctor.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me either by phone or by online booking.
