Yes, provided I have written authorization from ICBC/WCB.
Every splint is custom-made to suit your condition. For that reason, the cost varies depending on the size, complexity and materials of the splint. The most common hand-splints cost less than $100.
Most medical plans will reimburse you for substantial portions of the costs of my splints. I provide the necessary invoice.
Your splint will lose its shape if exposed to heat sources such as ovens, radiators, sunlight, vehicle dashboards and hot water. Do not add padding material or attempt to make splint adjustments at home.
Your splint may be cleaned daily with soap and lukewarm water. Dry it thoroughly before reapplying it. If you use stockinette, wash it daily by hand.
Most likely. Please click on “Diagnoses” for a list of conditions I treat, or click on “Contact me” to ask me questions by phone or email.
This depends on your condition. I will advise you accordingly.
If you have any problems with the splint, please contact me within 2 weeks and there will be no charge for modifications. Beyond that time frame, adjustments will be charged on a time basis.
Should the following occur, remove your splint immediately and contact me:
If you perspire excessively, you can try putting cornstarch on your splint. Talcum powders have perfumes that may cause a rash to occur.
