Our pedorthic services are provided by a group of foot care professionals who have been serving the foot orthotic and footwear needs of Kitchener Waterloo and the surrounding area for over 25 years. They have worked closely with physicians and other health care professionals in a multi-team approach in their various locations throughout the region.
The effectiveness of a custom foot orthotic is highly dependent on the service that accompanies it so patient education is their focus. Kimberly Rau & Associates team of Canadian Certified Pedorthists are passionate about what they do and share the Woolwich Physiotherapy philosophy for exceptional quality of care.
Our pedorthists have Kinesiology degrees and as Canadian Certified Pedorthists have specialized education in the assessment, design, manufacture, fit and modification of foot orthotics. In addition, extensive training of footwear design, features, fit, function and modification is exclusive to our profession. They are members of The College of Pedorthics of Canada, The Pedorthic Association of Canada and The Ontario Kinesiology Association.
