Chiropodists and Podiatrists are the only regulated health professionals whose scope allows for the prescription and provision of custom-made orthotics. Chiropodists and Podiatrists are the experts in use and manufacturing of orthotics. For this reason, many insurance companies require orthotics to be prescribed and dispensed by a Chiropodist / Podiatrist.
Due to all feet being unique, custom-made orthotics provide comfort and correct abnormal biomechanical and gait patterns. At Aurora Family Foot Clinic, we take an impression of the patient's foot using Plaster of Paris molds or 3D scans.
