What is Pedorthics?

Pedorthics is a professional field covering the design, manufacture, modification and/or fit of footwear.

Pedorthics encompasses shoes, orthoses and foot devices that prevent or alleviate foot problems caused by disease, overuse, injury or congenital defect.

Certified Pedorthists work with patients and their footwear to conform to a doctor’s footwear prescription as part of the patient’s treatment.

BalanceWorks is one of the only providers in Central & Southern Vermont providing custom molded shoes, diabetic shoes and inserts for patients.

How it Works

We invite you into the lab and explain how the structure and functioning of the foot ideally works.

Then, we look at how your feet are actually working and assess the alignment.

Next, we brace your feet in the correct position, and you should immediately feel the difference in stability and comfort.

Afterwards, we go over options and can make suggestions tailored to your feet and budget.

BalanceWorks sells a wide variety of prefabricated and custom footbeds and arch supports for all of your foot care needs.
