What is Pedorthics?

Pedorthics is the management and treatment of conditions of the foot, ankle, and lower extremities requiring fitting, fabricating, and adjusting of pedorthic devices. Pedorthics uses footwear to help ease and treat these foot-related problems.


What is a Pedorthist?

An individual who is trained in the management and treatment of conditions of the foot, ankle, and lower extremities requiring fitting, fabricating, and adjusting of pedorthic devices.


What does a Pedorhtist do?

Credentialed pedorthists select and modify footwear (or make it, if necessary) to help people maintain or regain as much mobility as possible. When your ability to walk is affected, everything that surrounds or touches your foot—whether it's foot orthoses, shoes, boots, slippers, sandals, socks, hosiery, night splints, bandages, braces, partial-foot prosthetics, or other devices—interacts with your foot. That makes footwear a crucial part of your recommended treatment plan. Footwear adjustments can be made inside or outside a shoe.
Foot orthoses, also called orthotics, area an important component of footwear that can accommodate, support, or relieve specific conditions, as well as improve the foot's function. In addition to designing and fabricating an appropriate orthotic, a credentialed pedorthist can provide you with personalized attention in selecting, fitting, and modifying shoes so that you can wear the orthotic effectively. Credentialed pedorthists follow up to make sure the footwear functions as your doctor prescribed. A footwear prescription, like any other prescription, takes into account your medical history, activities of daily living, and treatment goals.


How can a Pedorthist help me?

Many people suffer from foot problems, ranging from calluses to conditions that require hospitalization. Pedorthists can help treat these problems conservatively (non-surgically) by creating or modifying footwear as part of an overall treatment regimen prescribed by your doctor. 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.
