To practise as a podiatrist in Ontario, one must hold a "Doctor of Podiatric Medicine/DPM" degree from one of the nine Colleges of Podiatric Medicine in the United States, or from the podiatry program offered by the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières campus.
PUBLIC FOOT HEALTH INFO
Is it a custom Orthotic or not? Let the patient/consumer beware! Real Orthotics are medical appliances that are inserted into the shoes to effect an alteration in the biomechanical functioning of the foot and the pedal posture, that in turn exerts an influence on the ankle, knee, hip and lower back.
