An annual foot assessment is highly recommended for proper foot health.
Only after a complete and thorough assessment of the feet and lower limbs can the most effective treatment solutions be determined and orthotic devices be designed. Such assessments are best conducted by a practitioner who has extensive training and expertise, such as a Canadian Certified Pedorthist.
The pedorthist will assist the patient in understanding their medical condition and the potential causes, contributing factors, and the recommended treatments.
The main purpose of the assessment is to determine whether the medical condition with which the patient presents is related to poor foot structure and / or biomechanics. A thorough investigation includes:
- Weight Examination
- Non Weight Bearing Examination
- Gait Analysis Evaluation
In a foot assessment, we gather patient history to identify patterns and expose factors that contribute to the patient’s medical condition.
We check symptoms, previous injuries, occupation, and other factors.
