Special Olympics Fit Feet offers podiatric screenings to evaluate ankles, feet, lower extremity biomechanics, and proper shoe and sock gear to participating athletes. Fit Feet helps Special Olympics athletes step lively on the playing field, and in everyday life. Many athletes suffer from foot and ankle pain, or deformities that impair their performance. In fact, up to 50 percent of Special Olympics athletes experience one or more preventable or treatable foot conditions that can affect their sports participation.

objective of the OPMA is to have Ontario adopt a full scope podiatry model reflecting the podiatry models that exist in
nearly all North American jurisdictions so that podiatrists
may practise to their full competencies to thebenefit of our patients and to Ontario's healthcare delivery system.
