Splinting, bracing or taping may be used to treat the following conditions:
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 required, 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’re unsure about your benefits and coverage, check with your employer’s HR department or your insurance policy provider. The Feet First Clinic can also get a policy breakdown on your behalf.
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.
