Update Your Orthotics with OUR “Cash for Clunkers” Program
Posted Oct 06 2009 10:03pm
How can a Houston, TX podiatrist’s office offer a “Cash for Clunkers” program? Well don’t bring your old gas guzzler. The government ended that program!
What we’ll do is trade in your old, worn, beat-up orthotics or insoles and evaluate you for brand new orthotics. The useful lifetime of a custom orthotic is usually three to five years. This varies based on the material used to construct the orthotic, your weight, and your activity. The truth is, your mechanics change. You may have started a new exercise program, gained or lost weight, or suffered an injury…all of which will impact your mechanics. As mechanics change, your current orthotics will not provide the stability that they once did.
Of course, off-the-shelf insoles need to be replaced much more often. Because of the soft, flexible material, they will deform and no longer be supportive.
So now is a great time to replace those worn-out orthotics and insoles. Give us a call and tell us that you “have a clunker to trade in” and you’ll receive up to $50 off a new pair of custom orthotics. The money comes right off the cash balance of the orthotics once we hear from your insurance company. If your clunker wasn’t made by our office? No problem! You can take advantage of this program even if you’ve never been to our office before.
If you’ve recently gotten one of our custom orthotics that are working great and it’s not time to replace them, think about a second pair. It’s perfect for dress shoes, high heels, western books, bike shoes, or just for the convenience of having another. If this is something you need, let us know and we’ll give you up to $25 off the cash balance.
Contact our office at 713-785-7881 today to take advantage of this program. Unless Congress votes to fund the program longer, it will end on October 31, 2009. For more information about custom orthotics, visit http://tanglewoodfootspecialists.com/serv/ortho.htm
