Services > Patient Assessment & Education
Each patient will participate in a number of tests including a walking gait analysis, (an evaluation of the way the patient walks) and a series of motion tests that evaluate flexibility.
Once the assessment is complete, the Pedorthist will explain how a problem has occurred, how proper footwear and / or orthotics can be of help and of course, answer any questions a patient may have about the process.
Explanations are provided with the help of visual aids and computer animations. Patients are also provided with reading material on their specific condition and available treatments.
