Western Carolina Physical Therapy now provides a full array of Vasyli custom orthotics and sandals. Vasyli custom inserts are a medical grade, heat moldable, custom built orthotic. Vasyli helps close the gap between retail inserts and formed orthotics which often cost upwards of $400. For patients who need more than just a little added comfort and can avoid formed orthotics, Vasyli products are just right. The typical cost of the orthotics is around $50 for the pair. Assessment and Fitting time that it takes for the physical therapist to evaluate your needs and mold the orthotics takes about 30-45 minutes and is often a covered service by insurance companies including Medicare and BCBS. Patients without insurance can expect to pay about $50 for this service. All in all, the Vasyli line is a great product at a very affordable price. Most patients can leave the office with their custom orthotics for around $100. Stop by and see us and the latest Vasyli product line up. We are conveniently located in the Lakey Creek Health Center, in the Cheshire Village of Black Mountain.
