Frequently Asked Questions about Cardinal Points Clinic
What Should I Expect For My First Visit?
The first visit is a little different from the following ones. We will go over a detailed assessment of your history and health condition and structure a custom treatment plan just for you. If time permits we will also go over a short treatment.
To speed up the process you can download and fill out the intake forms from the book now page and bring them with you for your visit.
What Should I Wear?
Manual Osteopathy – Unlike massage – Is performed while the patient is completely clothed. For this reason it is best if you wear thin loose fitting clothing. It is not recommended to wear many layers or clothing made of thick materials, as this may restrict the practitioners ability.
Dresses, skirts, and low cut shirts are prohibited.
Are you covered by Insurance Benefits?
Osteopathy is covered by most major insurance companies under your extended health plan. If you are covered you may get a full or partial refund depending on your policy.
Yoga and Meditation are offered on a cash basis only.
Where are you located?
44 First Street, Orangeville.
I am located inside the top floor of TCM Healthcare Inc. Please note my clinic is up a flight of stairs – If you are currently immobilized by your condition send me an e-mail and we will be happy to accommodate.
How do I book a Yoga or Meditation session?
Yoga and Meditation are held at a different space and require advanced notice. Please contact me at Dan@fourcardinalpoints.ca to book and discuss the best possible time. Group classes are also available with Dan at a variety of studios across Orangeville.
What if I can’t afford treatment?
Are you in pain but can’t afford osteopathic care? First and foremost – We want our services to be available to anyone who needs it. If a financial issue is the only thing holding you back from treatment please call or email me here and I would be happy to help accommodate you.
Are Custom Orthotics Covered by Insurance?
There have been recent changes in insurance policies regarding Custom Orthotics Inserts. Many different healthcare professionals have been affected. For this reason the majority of Insurance companies will NOT allow Manual Osteopath’s to dispense Custom Orthotic Inserts through Insurance benefits.
This means our Custom Orthotic Inserts are offered on a cash only basis.
This also has a variety of benefits. The first is that you do not need a script from a Doctor to purchase our orthotics. Second – We have adjusted our prices accordingly. Our Orthotics are sold for only $400 which is about $150-$200 less than other providers. They are the exact same Orthotics but we want to keep them affordable as we understand they can be expensive for people who do not have benefit plans.
We plan to become the preferred provider for people purchasing Orthotics on a cash only basis. 🙂
