BIOMECHANICAL EVALUATION AND GAIT ANALYSIS
A full biomechanical assessment is conducted by our Pedorthist, Jeremy Ross. This process includes a detailed history of the patient, current footwear analysis, range of motion testing, manual palpation of the lower limbs, and is concluded by a visual gait analysis. The information gathered helps the Pedorthist determine the best possible treatment options.
CUSTOM MADE FOOT ORTHOTICS
When custom foot orthotics are deemed necessary, a cast is taken of your feet using the Foam Box Impression Method. This involves the patient being placed in a non-weightbearing position, while the feet are put into Subtalar Neutral and individually casted. This cast is then used to fabricate your custom orthotics. Using the information gathered from the Biomechanical Evaluation and Gait Analysis, each custom orthotic is tailored specifically to fit the needs of the patient.
FOOTWEAR ADVICE AND FITTING
What sets a Canadian Certified Pedorthist apart from other foot care professionals is our knowledge on footwear. At Skyward, footwear is taken very seriously. Length, width, depth, material, and function are all taken into account when selecting the correct shoe for you.
COMPRESSION SOCK FITTING
Jeremy Ross is a certified Compression Sock Fitter. This certification ensures the best fit for all your compression sock needs. Measurements are taken of the lower limbs to accurately determine the appropriate size needed. Material choices are reviewed, as well as the function of the socks. Let us help with selecting the correct compression socks for your lifestyle.
