Some for podiatrists but mainly for sports <br>professionals with podiatric or gait anomalies etc <br>We generally charge around &Acirc;&pound;120 - but this can go up depending on the complexity of what they <br>require. It is normally included into a whole battery of tests, and the data written up in the form of a <br>report. We do approximately 2 per month. It usually includes kinematics, force plate, Musgrave <br>pressure plate data and physical/clinical examination. We rarely use e.m.g but have the facility if <br>requested. <br>&nbsp; <br>We have seen a few patients with chronic conditions more related to MVA and not workman's comp. <br>Our charge for a full analysis runs ~$1300. <br>&nbsp; <br>&nbsp;I use F-scan ( www.Tekscan.com ) in shoe pressure data and a 2D motion system for static angle measurement.&nbsp; I take data barefoot, and in a shoe w/ no orthotic <br>initially.&nbsp; I will then modify a pair of temporary orthotics over 4-7 tests w/ the f-scan and 2D video, until <br>I have made the foot function as symmetrical as I can.&nbsp; This take 2.5-3 hours as well, and I interpret <br>each test and direct the next modification.&nbsp; Finally , I will take a plaster cast impression for construction <br>of a custom foot orthosis for the patient w/ the final test modifications.&nbsp; I get great results in treating <br>chronic low back pain, and othre postural symptoms.&nbsp; I also work w/ professional athletes, and local <br>high school and college athletes.&nbsp; Pain and athletics are what drive this part of my practice. I've been <br>doing this for about 2 years.&nbsp; My current charges to insurance for the tests, avg 3 hours, and the temp <br>and permanent orthotics are $2200.&nbsp; Keep in mind these are my charges.&nbsp; We have been gettng <br>reimbursement around $1200-$1500. <hr WIDTH="100%"> <br><a href="../../faq.html">Back to FAQ</a><a href="../../faq.html"><img SRC="signpost.gif" BORDER=0 height=32 width=33></a> </body> </html>
