Pedorthics​

What does a Pedorthist do?

A pedorthist will use their assessment of your lower limb anatomy and function to design, fit and modify your custom-made orthotics or orthopaedic footwear. Corrective footwear is combined with other education and services, as part of an overall pedorthic treatment plan designed specifically for your needs.

Pedorthists can help you get and keep proper foot health, so you can stop sitting on the sidelines and start living the kind of active lifestyle you want.
