At HCRC, orthotics and orthopaedic shoes are dispensed by a Physiotherapist. Prescription Orthotics are custom made to reduce pain and correct faulty foot or lower body mechanics.

Orthotics can be used for a number of problems including:

  • Foot, arch or heel pain

  • Leg, knee, hip or back pain

  • Bunions, hammer toes, metatarsalgia, and plantar fasciitis.

A wide variety of orthopaedic/orthotic shoes, boots and sandals are available to suit your individual needs and lifestyle.

You may have insurance coverage for your orthotics, orthotic/orthopaedic shoes or sandals. Check your insurance plan for orthotics coverage and note the following:

  • Do you have coverage for orthotics, orthotic shoes, stock orthopaedic shoes or custom made orthopaedic shoes?
  • What is the amount of coverage per pair of orthotics and how often can you receive a new pair?
  • How many pairs of orthotics or shoes per year are you allowed?
  • Do you need a Physician or Doctor’s prescription or recommendation to get orthotics?
  • Can the Orthotics be dispensed by a Physiotherapist along with a Physician prescription?
  • All of these vary between insurance companies and are important to confirm before your orthotics are fabricated and provided to you by our Physiotherapists.

The following is an example:

  • You may have $500.00 in coverage per pair of orthotics.
  • You may be able to replace the orthotics every two years.
  • You may be able to have the orthotics dispensed by a physiotherapist.
