Healthy Steps Pedorthic Clinic in Barrhaven

Certified pedorthists Derek Gilmer and Richard May at Healthy Steps Pedorthic Clinic

The spring we thought would never arrive is finally here and everyone is heading back outdoors. Whether you spent the winter hibernating or are simply changing sports, make sure you are equipped with the proper footwear. The right fit and adequate support can prevent injuries and optimize your exercise regime. Be sure to buy footwear designed for the specific demands of your sport and replace your shoes regularly. At Healthy Steps Pedorthic Clinic they can do an assessment of your body alignment and gait and tell you whether you require any additional support inside your shoes. If you do require orthotics, they can custom make them to fit your needs at their on-site manufacturing facility.

The professionals at Healthy Steps can also determine if you have a foot/lower limb condition that could contribute to your risk of injury and can treat common overuse injuries like Plantar Fasciitis (heel and arch pain), Achilles Tendonitis (back of the heel-ankle), and Patello-Femoral Syndrome (pain around the knee cap).

Spring is no time to be sidelined with foot or lower limb pain. For an appointment at the clinic call 613-823-2522 or request an appointment online at The clinic is located at 4100 Strandherd Drive, Unit 202 (2nd floor) in Barrhaven. EP
