What is Podiatry?

Podiatry is a branch of medicine devoted to prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions affecting the bones, muscles, tendons and soft tissues of the feet, ankles, knees and related structures up to the pelvis and spine. 

What does a Podiatrist Do?


Our podiatrist will perform a static and dynamic biomechanical assessment, which allow her to identify pathologies, as well as body misalignments which are responsible for recurring ankle sprains, lower back pain or flatten feet.

What is a Podiatry Treatment?

According to the assessment, our podiatrist will design then build custom made orthotics, also called insoles, tailored to your condition and its specifics. Orthotics are shoe inserts that can be molded from a 3D machine or shaped from feet print. Our podiatrist will manufacture them in-house, which allows you to get your insoles within a few days.


We are proud to offer cutting edge technologies for assessment and orthotics design to optimize your posture.
