Foothills Pedorthics specializes in analyzing how the feet affect the entire human body, going up the kinetic chain. Many ankle, knee, hip and back pains can be related to imbalances in the feet. We work with orthopedic specialists, physicians, physical therapists, chiropractors, pediatricians, and many other medical professionals to solve the problems of foot imbalances, foot trauma, hip problems, knee problems, back problems, and genetic foot disorders.
Foothills Pedorthics also has extensive knowledge of quality footwear and footwear modifications that correct biomechanical issues. We build custom orthotics, rocker bottoms, lifts, lateral flairs, and other shoe modifications to address lack of mobility, ankle fusions, leg length discrepancies, and other ambulatory problems.
