Cleveland Clinic Canada endorses the practice and profession of the Pedorthic Association of Canada.
What is a Pedorthist?
Canadian certified pedorthists are trained and highly skilled in biomechanics, anatomy, physiology of the lower limbs, orthotics fabrication and modification and footwear fitting and modification. Canadian certified pedorthists work as members of the healthcare team to alleviate painful or debilitating conditions resulting from abnormalities or limited actions of the lower limbs.
What Do We Treat?
Our pedorthist works closely with the sports health team to provide care for a diverse range of patients, and specializes in the following areas:
- Custom foot orthotics
- Foot and ankle pain
- Biomechanical exam and gait analysis
- Sports injuries
- Footwear recommendations
Patients are typically referred directly to certified pedorthists by their physician or medical specialist. All major Canadian insurance companies endorse certified pedorthists as providers of these services.
A 40-minute initial consultation is required, where a patient history is conducted followed by a complete biomechanical assessment.
