As we celebrate 12 years of SoleFit this spring, we asked our Certified Pedorthists what influences them the most when it comes to assessing and treating clients. All of our Certified Pedorthists share 10+ years in the practice of evaluating, treating, and making recommendations for movement pathologies linked with pain and overuse. And as with any good medical clinic, it is important to continue to evolve the way in which we treat patients as new information emerges while at the same time making sure that we are not just buying into the latest new fad. The following are some key learnings/actions that have stood out over the years as being a few of the most influential on a patient’s successful treatment.

As always, we’d love to hear from you if you have any questions/comments. To keep up with blog posts, health tips, and upcoming events be sure to sign up for our monthly newsletter!
