Who is the podiatry assessment for?

The podiatry assessment is aimed at all people who wish to determine whether their pain or problem (of the back, foot, hip, knee or ankle) can be relieved by wearing orthopaedic insoles (classic, thermoformed or thermo-welded). This can be done for adults, but also for children from 5-6 years old.

A check-up with a chiropodist is particularly recommended for overweight people, people who have undergone surgery (lower limbs, pelvic girdle, spine), the elderly, pregnant women, workers in a standing position, athletes and people suffering from morphological anomalies (hollow feet, club feet, varum or valgum knees, etc.) or sensory motor deficiencies (multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid diseases, Parkinson's disease, etc.)

What treatment is offered following a podiatrist's assessment?

The treatment depends on the parameters observed during the podiatry assessment and is specific to each patient. It usually involves wearing orthopaedic inserts, strengthening or stretching exercises for different muscle groups, etc.

Our answers to the most frequently asked questions about the podiatry biomechanical assessment

Is a podiatry assessment necessary to obtain orthopaedic inserts?

Yes, the podiatry assessment is an essential preliminary step to establish a diagnosis of the possible need to wear orthopaedic inserts.

What is the difference between a podiatrist and a posturologist?

A podiatrist is a practitioner of pedicure and podiatry. However, as the title of posturologist is not currently regulated, it is important to check that the therapist holds a DIU (inter-university diploma) in clinical posturology.

Why wear orthopaedic inserts?

Orthopaedic insoles may be recommended to relieve pain elsewhere, for example in the lower back, legs or ankle. People who tend to roll their feet inwards, and those with high arches of the foot should wear orthotics.
