A Pedorthist is trained in the assessment, design, manufacture, fit, and modification of custom foot orthotic devices (orthoses).
Orthotics are designed to help improve the biomechanics of the foot throughout all phases of gait (a full stride when walking and running). Imbalances in the supporting structures of your feet may cause excessive motion leading to injury of the ankle, knee, hip and lumbar spine.
If you are experiencing foot, shin, knee, hip or low back discomfort, the origin may be biomechanical in nature and an orthotic may be helpful. See a member of the RST team for an assessment today.
Milan Hudec is RiverSide Sports Therapy’s resident Pedorthist.
