Despite the alarming sound, ankle cracking isn’t always a cue to rush to your doctor’s …
Our chiropodists can skillfully and therapeutically splint, brace and tape the feet and toes to treat and prevent a variety of foot conditions and deformities. These treatments include:
You can book an appointment with a chiropodist to have your foot issue assessed. At the assessment, the chiropodist will determine the best course of treatment. If splinting, bracing or taping is recommended, it will be performed at that time. The chiropodist can also instruct you as to how to properly apply any splints, braces or tape at home. Follow-up appointments may be recommended to monitor how your feet are progressing.
The cost of any splinting, bracing or taping is included in the cost of a chiropodist assessment; there is no extra fee.
Most chiropodist services are covered by private extended health benefits. If you are unsure about your benefits and coverage for chiropodist services, you can contact your insurance company directly, consult the policy breakdown in your online benefits portal, or check with your employer’s HR department to receive a breakdown of your policy.
We strongly recommend that you verify your coverage directly with your insurer prior to your appointment.
The assessment fee does not include the cost of any splints, braces or tape that you purchase at the Clinic to use at home. Some foot care benefits may cover this expense, depending on the product and if you have a prescription for it.
Please note: chiropodist services are NOT covered by OHIP.
Our simple to use, online booking process makes it easy to book an appointment with a chiropodist for any of our services. No referral needed!
