Frequently Asked Questions

A Certified Pedorthist is a health professional who has trained and studied in helping manage painful issues related to feet. This skill set includes fitting, fabricating, adjusting or modifying orthotic devices that reflect the level of education and training received.

A doctor’s prescription is required to book an assessment.

Sometimes a medical doctor will have a detailed treatment plan for you in mind. They can also leave a treatment plan to the discretion of the Pedorthist.

Please be sure to check with your insurance provider for required prescription details (ie: what is being prescribed and why). You will also need to inquire as to how often you are covered by your plan for foot orthotics (ie: once every year, once every two years, etc.).

Foot orthotics are a custom made medical device that are removeable from footwear and designed to help relieve foot pain or lower limb discomfort.

As long as your shoes fit you properly, have a removeable footbed and are made of good quality construction (not too flexible), the above criteria will assist in a successful fit of your foot orthotics.

Footwear is a very important part of our foot health. Footwear that lacks support or doesn’t fit properly (ie: too short or too narrow) can cause or increase foot pain and discomfort. Feet lengthen and broaden naturally throughout adulthood as we lose the elasticity in our connective tissues. Most often a lace up or velcro closure shoe is best, as they provide the most secure fit.

In 1948 the American Board for Certification in Prosthetics, Orthotics and Pedorthics was established. It wasn’t until 1990 that Canada had their first designated credentials for Pedorthists, followed by the second in 2014.

The materials used are primarily made of heat moldable materials. Exposure to anything warm/hot like woodstoves, hair dryers or electric baseboard heaters can be damaging. Allow foot orthotics to air dry naturally to avoid any mishaps. Keeping them out of your pets reach is recommended.
