Typical Appointment Procedures-


Obtain a Prescription from your Physician

This prescription needs to have a diagnosis as to why the orthosis is needed and

The prescription needs to describe the type of orthosis being ordered.

This is required because an Orthotist fills a prescription, they are not Doctors and can not diagnosis only treat the problems.

Call and schedule an appointment.  Most appointments require at least 2 appointments.

1st – evaluation and take necessary measurements

2nd – fitting of the orthosis

Break into the orthosis as prescribed.


Follow up care on all our orthoses is important.
