Certified pedorthists are trained and certified professionals who are knowledgeable in assessing feet, consulting with the physician, modifying footwear, and employing supportive devices to address conditions that affect your feet and lower limbs. "Out of the 125 Certified Pedorthists in the state of Illinois, having three pedorthists in one location provides a great advantage for the people in our area. Because we have more expert staff, we can schedule more appointments, allow walk-ins more frequently, and can provide prompt service for the customer's convenience.
