A biomechanically dedicated podiatrist employs foot typing to relieve the arches in the feet from the wear and tear caused by absorbing shock. The podiatrist determines each patient's foot type, and then confirms the diagnosis with x-rays. Within 20 minutes, the doctor takes casts of each foot, which are adjusted over the course of two follow-up visits. The casts are used to craft US-patented, podiatry exclusive Foot Centerings custom orthotics—semi-rigid thermoplastic insoles that can be inserted into many styles of shoes, including high heels.
Dr. Dennis Shavelson of Lifestyle Podiatry has been caring for feet for more than three decades. During this time, he has patented a system for studying the architecture of the feet—Functional Foot Typing—which offers patients health advice based on their specific foot type.
He corrects individual problems with everything from surgery to physical therapy to custom shoe inserts. He also addresses aesthetic woes with PinPointe laser treatments that blast away unsightly nail fungus and KeryFlex nail restorations that re-create nails damaged by onychomycosis or clumsy dance partners. His medical wisdom is often featured in The Huffington Post's Style section, keeping readers aware of the dangers of ill-fitting shoes and suspect pedicure practices.
