Heather L Rudkin DCh
My mission is to improve and maintain your freedom of mobility by providing you with the highest quality
custom-made orthotics and personalized treatment plans.
Over a decade in practise, Chiropodist Heather Rudkin has the knowledge and experience to effectively treat a wide array of foot problems with the use of orthotic therapy and footwear intervention. Heather is registered with the College of Chiropodists of Ontario and the Canadian Federation of Podiatric Medicine.
Chiropodists are regulated primary health care providers who are trained in the assessment, prevention and treatment of foot and ankle related disorders. Chiropodists are licensed specialists in the prescription of custom foot orthoses. No referral or prescription is necessary to see a Chiropodist or required by most insurance plans.
Your assessment will include both weight-bearing and non-weight-bearing examinations in addition to footwear and gait analyses. These investigations will determine whether or not you will benefit from orthotic therapy in addition to other therapeutic modalities to achieve symptom resolution.
Diagnosis and treatment options will be discussed and an initial treatment plan formulated.
Follow-up visits are encouraged to ensure the effectiveness of your orthotic therapy and to update the path of your ongoing treatment plan.
VeriScan 3-dimensional laser scanner is employed to capture structural deformity which is then corrected by the prescription orthotic device. Our foot orthoses conform to the “Anatomical Custom Foot Orthoses” classification as defined in PFOLA’s Technical Standards Definition Document. We do not use a “library” system of digital shape files, pre-corrected molds, or prefabricated shells.
A properly imaged and prescribed orthotic device can provide resolution for people suffering from a wide range of foot and ankle problems including: heel and arch pain, bunions, knee pain, leg pain, general foot and ankle pain and many other conditions associated with flat feet, high arched feet and overpronating feet. Orthotic therapy also helps to protect high-risk feet from deformity and injury.
