A credentialed pedorthist is a specialist in using footwear - which includes shoes, shoe modifications, foot orthoses and other pedorthic devices - to solve problems in, or related to, the foot and lower limb.
Why Should I See A Pedorthist?
When a foot requires medical attention, footwear becomes a factor in the patient's treatment, recovery or rehabilitation. It's a team approach: While the doctor treats your foot, the credentialed pedorthist addresses your footwear needs.
Will I See A Pedorthist On My Visit?
Yes, all patients are seen and evaluated by the A.B.C. Certified, State Licensed Pedorthist.
My feet sometimes bother me, but I don't need a doctor, I just need more comfort in my shoes. Can a Pedorthist help with that?
Yes. Many people can benefit from pedorthic devices or footwear modifications to make their shoes more comfortable. Sometimes they just need a shoe that has been properly fit. You can see a credentialed pedorthist without a footwear prescription, but some credentialed pedorthists prefer to work by appointment, to assure they can give your feet the attention you deserve. Keep in mind that if you have a medical condition, you will need a footwear prescription before the credentialed pedorthist can help you.
