Podiatrist and orthotist ? How to find one’s way ?


June 21, 2018

The orthotist has a college education and is considered as a technician.   He is authorized to design and manufacture orthotics according to a prescription issued by a podiatrist or a doctor.  The orthotist cannot prescribe nor evaluate a patient.  Though, he can adjust plantar orthotics prior prescribed by a podiatrist.

The podiatrist is a healthcare professional governed by the Professional Code of Quebec.  He assesses and treats foot disorders as well as foot diseases.  The podiatrist has a university education and a Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine.  In Quebec, only podiatrists and doctors can prescribe plantar orthotics following a biomechanical evaluation of the patient. Contrary to an orthotist, the podiatrist can also proceed with manual therapies, minor surgeries, laser treatments, X-rays and ultrasounds.

Did you know that no medical reference is required when making an appointment and/or consult a podiatrist ?  As for the dentist or the chiropractor, the podiatrist is a healthcare professional practising in the private sector. 

Passionnate about health and podiatry, experts from our clinic have developed a distinctive approach promoting the overall health of each patient.
