What is Pedorthics?

A Certified Pedorthist, or C. Ped. is a specialist in using footwear–which includes shoes, shoe modifications, foot orthoses and other pedorthic devises - to solve problems in, or related to, the foot and lower limb.

The Difference at Capital O & P

Whether you are an extremely active person or enjoy more leisurely activities, foot pain can certainly limit you. We have on-site fabrication and the ability to provide you with a quality fit and functional foot orthotic or shoeware.  Many companies have overlooked pedorthics for its low revenue producing nature. We at Capital care about even the smallest of issues. That is why we have a Certified Pedorthist on staff to provide an expert opinion and fabrication of pedorthic services.

 

For Diabetics

We have a special interest in the diabetic population, whether for the prevention/healing of foot related ulcers or educating them on footwear and footcare. At Capital we realize that the smallest wound can turn into a major medical issue in a very short period of time. That is why we work closely with the Wound Center at Concord Hospital and local Podiatrists to provide you with the most consistent and knowledgeable care.
