What is a Pedorthist?

Sunday, Mar 18th, 2018

I have been asked many time -What exactly is a Pedorthist? Simply put, 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.

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.
