We offer a wide range of pedorthic services to help you feel your best. Assessments, custom orthoses, custom footwear are some of the key services we provide. We supply whatever is needed to alleviate your symptoms. Below is a sample of the steps that are taken to let you walk, run and jump pain free.

Assessment

Patients are fully assessed, using the following techniques: physical exam of foot, ankle and lower leg; assessment of footwear; videotaped treadmill gait analysis; three-dimensional casting of foot. We will also ask you questions about your lifestyle, activities, and relevant medical history. Recommendations from your physician will be discussed and considered as well.

Custom orthoses

In some cases a minor adjustment of your footwear is all that is needed, in others more drastic action is required, such as custom footwear. In most cases, your symptoms can be alleviated with custom orthoses.

A three-dimensional casting of your foot is taken in order to custom manufacture your orthotics. Once the orthotic is returned from the lab, final adjustments are made by hand to ensure appropriate fit and function.

Follow-up

During your treatment, we will take the time to help you understand the nature of your problem, and how orthotics and footwear are of benefit. We also work with other health care professionals to ensure you have access to a full range of treatment options to help you get the best results possible.

Speaking

Lisa is also available to speak to running groups, walking groups, health oriented groups, service clubs, or other groups such as the Arthritis Society, regarding activity specific footwear and orthotic intervention.
