A pedorthist is a healthcare professional with specific training in footwear—which includes shoes, shoe modifications, foot orthoses, and other pedorthic devices—to solve problems in, or related to, the foot and lower limb.

Many people suffer from foot problems, ranging from calluses to conditions that require hospitalization. Pedorthists can help treat these problems conservatively by creating or modifying footwear. Footwear is a crucial part of treatment, as mobility is affected by everything that surrounds or touches the foot. Footwear modifications can also be performed to simply make shoes more comfortable.

Foot orthoses, also called orthotics, are an important component of footwear that can accommodate, support, or relieve specific conditions, as well as improve the foot’s function. In addition to designing and fabricating an appropriate orthotic, a pedorthist can provide you with personalized attention in selecting, fitting, and modifying shoes so that you can wear the orthotic effectively.
