Orthotics and Footwear
The podiatrists at Stephen Cardinal Podiatry Group are able to recommend appropriate footwear for your individual needs. We also carry a number of footwear brands including Dr Comfort diabetic footwear, Orthaheel and Vasyli. All our podiatrists and receptionists are trained in fitting and measuring these. In particular, it is essential that people with diabetes wear well fitted, protective footwear. The ideal shoe should cushion whilst also providing ankle, arch and heel support. It should allow an even distribution of pressure and weight to avoid pressure points that are likely to breakdown and ulcerate.
Our podiatrists are experienced and trained in providing you with the right orthotic to meet your needs, whether that be a customized rigid orthotic or a prefabricated orthotic requiring adjustments.
