What is a Pedorthist?
A Pedorthist is a professional who has specialized training in modifying footwear and employs supportive devices to address conditions that affect the feet and lower limbs.
Many people suffer from foot-related problems, such as bunions, heel pain, ball of foot pain, and even knee, hip, and back pain caused by an imbalance in the feet. Pedorthists can help treat these problems conservatively (non-surgically) by creating or modifying footwear as part of an overall treatment regimen.
The correct footwear is a crucial part of treatment, as mobility is affected by everything that surrounds or touches the foot. Footwear modifications can also be performed to simply make shoes more comfortable.
