A pedorthist is an individual who is trained in the manufacturing, fitting and modification of foot appliance and footwear for the purposes of alleviating painful or debilitation conditions, and providing assistance for abnormalities or limited actions of the lower limb. The pedorthist provides devices and footwear to assist in:
  • accommodation of foot deformities
  • re-alignment of anatomical structures
  • redistribution of external and internal forces
  • improvement of balance
  • control of biomechanical function
  • accommodation of circulatory special requirements
  • enhancement of the actions of limbs compromised as a result of accident, congenital deformity, neural condition, or disease

The Kootenay Pedorthic Clinic offers a wide array of pedorthic services including foot assessment, range of motion, gait analysis, custom casted orthotics, casting for orthopedic footwear, over the counter foot supports and inserts to help alleviate debilitating conditions.

We specialize in the following services:

  • plantar fasciitis

  • bunion splints
  • hammer toes
  • claw toes
  • achilles tendonitis
  • knee pain
  • hip pain
  • lower back pain
  • ankle pain

There is no perfect foot shape. All foot shapes can have their own inherent problems. Many of the people who come into the clinic assume that they have the worst feet in the world. Many painful and debilitating can be cover come with the proper treatment, however.

Come in for an assessment and see what you can learn about your feet and how they are really the foundation of your body. If the foundation is not good, maybe other structures are suffering because of it.
