What is a Pedorthist?
A Canadian Certified Pedorthist – C. Ped (C) is a foot orthotic and orthopaedic footwear expert regulated by the College of Pedorthics of Canada . Members have to complete an internship of minimum 2000 hours in a pedorthic facility and must pass both written and oral exams with the College in order to become certified. They design, fit, and modify custom made orthotics and orthopaedic footwear. Pedorthists help alleviate pain, abnormalities, and debilitating conditions of the lower limbs and feet.
Canadian Certified Pedorthists consult with patients based on a referral from physicians, nurse practitioners and other healthcare providers. Canadian Certified Pedorthists are unique from other orthotic experts because they do not both prescribe and dispense the treatment for their clients. Ultimately the goal of every C. Ped (C) is to help patients achieve an active life by using proper footwear, custom foot orthotics, over the counter insoles, and adjusting existing insoles or footwear.
