Foot & Ankle Clinic
Podiatry is the medical professional specialty dealing with diseases and injuries of the foot and ankle. An undergraduate degree, usually in the sciences, is followed by a four year course of graduate study at a college of podiatric medicine with the awarding of a Doctorate in Podiatric Medicine, (D.P.M.)
Most podiatrists then go on to complete a podiatric surgical residency. National and State Board examinations as well as licensure by the state is required to practice podiatry. Podiatrists complete a minimum of 14 hours of continuing education each year.
Orthotics are custom made foot supports designed to support and balance the foot. They may be prescribed to treat a number of foot problems related to excessive rolling in and collapsing of the foot during walking and standing. Orthotics are fabricated from precise casts of the feet, which undergo numerous modifications and adjustments depending on the foot type. They are removable devices functioning in a variety of shoes.

The Colorado Springs Foot and Ankle Clinic has a laboratory on the premises to both fabricate and modify many types of shoe inserts and orthotics.
