Fitting a foot on the pedorthic measuring device.

A Pedorthic Clinic Right in Boise

Foot Dynamics has a full-service pedorthic clinic
staffed by full-time ABC & BOC certified pedorthists.

What is a Pedorthist?

A pedorthist is a foot care specialist with extensive training in treating foot or ankle issues via footwear, orthotics or footwear modification. Pedorthists are trained to assess and analyze the biomechanics of a person’s feet and lower limbs to determine if there are any abnormalities or conditions that require specialized footwear or orthotic interventions. They work closely with individuals who have foot problems resulting from medical conditions, injuries, or other factors, such as diabetes, arthritis, flat feet, bunions, plantar fasciitis, and more.

Why Would You See a Pedorthist?

Simply put, your feet hurt! Our job is to create a treatment plan to manage common foot ailments like plantar fasciitis, neuromas, neuropathies, and bunions.

If you have abnormalities in your foot structure or gait, such as flat feet, high arches, or overpronation, a Pedorthist can assess your biomechanics and provide custom-made orthotic insoles or shoe modifications to correct these issues and prevent further problems. People with diabetes are at a higher risk of foot complications due to neuropathy and poor circulation. A Pedorthist can help individuals with diabetes select suitable footwear and orthotics to prevent ulcers, blisters, and other diabetic-related foot problems. Arthritis in the feet and ankles can lead to pain and reduced mobility. Pedorthists can design orthotic devices and recommend footwear that provides support and reduces pressure on affected joints. After a foot or lower limb injury, such as a sprained ankle, stress fracture, or tendonitis, a Pedorthist can assist with rehabilitation by providing supportive footwear or orthotic devices to aid in the healing process and prevent further injuries.

A Pedorthist can play a crucial role in improving your foot and lower limb health, enhancing comfort, and preventing future problems by providing personalized solutions tailored to your unique needs and circumstances.

Testimonials

For the first time in years I am running without pain!

After running on my new orthotics for about a month now I have to let you know how pleased I am with your service and workmanship. For the first time in years I am running without pain! It’s incredible. Thanks so much.

I think that you run a first-class business. Your integrity, turnaround time, and product are first-rate.”

Worked out well for both my skate and classic XC ski boots

Howdy….

I was wondering if I can order another pair of orthotics….you made 2 for me this winter and I stopped in to pick up the second set on February 24th.  They worked out well for both my skate and classic XC ski boots.  I want to leave them inside the foot gear for the season.  I transferred one of the pairs out of my classic boots to my in-line skates and they really made a HUGE improvement in foot comfort.  I will leave the other pair in the XC skate boots for use with roller skis.

I want the additional pair for use in my sneakers which are a New Balance cross trainer variety. Maybe I’ll get a pair for my hiking boots and just leave them in there, too.

Thanks again for your help, fine service and advice this winter.

The most effective of the orthotics I’ve had came from the kit you sent

Yeah, we’re very happy.

It seems counterintuitive that the most effective of the orthotics I’ve had came from the kit you sent. I’ve twice before had running orthotics prescribed at a sports medicine clinic and they helped somewhat but didn’t completely do the trick. And things happened like the layer on top separated from the plastic, or the bladder popped in the case of gel orthotics.

Now I’m logging 50-mile weeks of running in addition to 100 miles of biking, swimming, and weights (getting ready for an Ironman®). I keep thinking surely the old Achilles tendonitis or runner’s knee that I had are going to make themselves known, but not a twinge in a year and a half. I refer quite a lot of people to you. I hope they’re buying.

Feet feel a ton better too, so we squeezed in twenty-three more miles today

Being the clown that I am, I finally remembered to put the inserts into my skates that Jeff Jacobs at Foot Dynamics made for me. Duh! Feet feel a ton better too, so we squeezed in twenty-three more miles today. Only thirty miles to the Pennsylvania border!
