Where do People Take Pedorthic Prescriptions?

The credentialed pedorthist is the member of the health care team who focuses on footwear as a therapeutic device. Credentialed pedorthists concentrate on how footwear – which includes shoes, orthoses and other devices – can prevent further damage, relieve pressures, redistribute weight and accommodate or correct medical conditions.
