» 2011 Prescription Custom Foot Orthoses Practice Guidelines
The very popular Prescription Custom Foot Orthoses Practice Guidelines were developed by the American College of Foot & Ankle Orthopedics & Medicine (ACFAOM) in response to the need for better definitions and indications for prescription custom foot orthoses. This document has been updated again and a PDF version is now available to all members FREE on the Member’s Only Area of the Web site at www.acfaom.org. Members and non-members can purchase a hard copy of the guidelines by ordering online or faxing in a paper order form (see below for both options).
Originally published in 2001, and updated in 2004 and 2006, this 40-page document is a definitive source of how prescription custom foot orthoses can and should be applied for different lower extremity conditions. ICD9 codes are used throughout associated with different diagnoses. And for each condition a statement of therapeutic efficacy is provided to help practitioners recognize when prescription custom foot orthoses should and can be used as part of a treatment plan based on over 200 references.
