3 Steps to Better Steps
I believe it is important for the patient to comprehend his/her diagnosis and prognosis. This means understanding how your feet function as you stand, walk and go through your day. I can help you see the full picture by showing you how you walk by recording your gait in real time and playing it back in slow motion. We will discuss your individual needs and how a custom orthotic will address your specific concerns.
I often use plaster slipper casting as I believe this is the most accurate method of capturing the shape of the feet. Obtaining an accurate mold or cast will ensure the best orthotic can be made for you! I do not use computers as I believe the hands of a craftsman for custom work are more suited for this purpose. Computers are great for mass production. Your orthotics are not a copy, they are custom made by me for you.
I fit the orthotics to your footwear because I want to ensure proper fit and optimize performance. Comfort is crucial. Too many orthotics are not used because the clinician did not take the time and energy to make them comfortable for the patient.
My journey started after seeing results from a career questionnaire that I completed in high school. It was either a bus driver, EMT or a Orthotic/Prosthetic Technician and I decided to go with feet! Before venturing on my journey to becoming a Canadian Certified Pedorthist I decided to be a missionary for two years in the Philippines where I learned the most important thing in life is to follow your heart. After returning home, I immediately enrolled into George Brown College to pursue my career. I now apply the same mantra to my everyday life. I truly desire to serve and help others to find better solutions for their mobility issues.
Studying & Practicing
The orthotics are amazing. They are super comfortable.
Everything worked out with the insurance. Thank you again for
always making the most comfortable pairs of orthotics ever!
My son has been wearing orthotics for many years now ,and we tried many companies as I never really felt fully satisfied with either the product or the customer service I received. I am so happy that I came across Scott this time. I loved the fact that Scot really took his time to explain the whole process and made it comfortable for my son who is a special needs kid and requires extra patience. Scott is very pleasant and professional to deal with, passionate about his work and most importantly makes great orthotics.
Thank you Scott for making our experience such a pleasure to go through
From start to finish, Scott was professional yet gave a family vibe to the whole experience. He not only supplied me with two great products but also educated me as to why I needed what he recommended and answered all of my questions. Real funny guy, I would recommend him to anyone who needs not just good orthotics but a great friend too.
I have good news for you. My heel pain has decreased significantly.
knee pain is gone. Was able to put my feet on the floor from bed for
the first time thins morning in a very long time. I think the orthoitcs
as they are, are working!
The orthotics are great; they're making my walk around the city a lot more comfortable.
Great experience getting my pair of orthotics from Scott. He walked me through everything from start to finish and answered all the questions I had. Highly recommended!
