Education on existing foot condition and prevention in certain conditions affecting feet and lower limbs (diabetes, arthritis, neurological conditions)

 

At Orthotics East Ltd., we believe education is very important for injury-prevention and leading a healthy lifestyle. As part of our service, we spend time with each client explaining their specific foot/lower-limb condition and how pedorthic therapy may be applicable. We also emphasize the importance of a proper shoe fit, and value teaching our clients how to do this. Finally, we believe strongly in the team approach for treatment, communicating with a broad range of health professionals whose expertise and care compliment our pedorthic services.
