What is a Canadian Certified Pedorthist- C.Ped (C) ?
Not to be confused with a podiatrist. A pedorthist is an orthotic and orthopaedic footwear expert. They are one of the few healthcare professionals trained in the assessment of lower limb anatomy and muscle and joint function to prevent or improve painful or disabling conditions of the foot and lower extremity caused by disease, congenital defect, overuse or injury.
