What Is Pedorthics?
 
 
 
 
 

Pedorthics is a speciality that involves foot assessment, design, manufacture of prescription custom foot orthoses or sandals, and modification of shoes, so as to alleviate problems of pain and deformities due to abnormal foot biomechanics.

What is a pedorthist?

Pedorthist is a certified healthcare professional in United States and Canada to provide the professional services in pedorthics.

Certified Pedorthists are specialized in foot biomechanics to treat problems due to mal-alignment of foot and knee. Pedorthists also create and modify footwear to reduce pain and help in locomotion of rheumatoid arthritic patients and speed up recovery of foot ulcer of diabetic patients.

Everyone needs foot assessment to find out if he or she has mal-alignment of the foot or the knee. Among people with abnormal foot biomechanics, some people have pain and deformities. These people need immediate pedorthic treatments while others need to have pedorthic services for precautions before symptoms have developed.
