Partnering with the Healthcare Community
While the eyes may be the window to one’s soul, the feet are the window to one’s general health. Your patients may frequently complain of foot pain. They are not alone. Over 75% of adults will suffer from serious foot problems during their lifetime.
As a medical professional, you know that foot ailments are often early symptoms of life-altering health concerns. Diabetes, arthritis, circulatory problems and nerve disorders present first in the feet. Other painful foot conditions such as hammertoes, bunions, calluses and plantar fasciitis significantly disrupt your patients’ quality of life.
As a medical professional, you also know that your patients rely on you to recommend only the most trusted and reputable medical services for their care. Since 1921, Chiappetta Shoes has dedicated our business to promoting healthier living through good foot health.
Putting your Patients’ Pedorthic Care First
As certified pedorthic professionals, we are committed to understanding and alleviating foot problems. Our pedorthic team is professionally certified and our business is accredited by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics (ABCOP). We adhere to ABCOP’s highest standards of pedorthic service and quality work. We also maintain active membership in the Pedorthic Footcare Association and the National Shoe Retailers Association.
The Chiappetta Philosophy of Orthotics
Our philosophy is simple. Accommodate the foot to reduce pain, relieve pressure and restore health.
Most footwear on the market does not offer significant contour. With a focus on comfort and common sense, accommodative orthotics provide a basic balance underneath the feet, solving many painful problems. We refer to this as “Bringing the ground up to the feet.”
With nearly 100 years in the retail shoe business, we know a lot about shoes. We understand that there is more to a shoe than how it is made. The real knowledge in our many years of experience comes in knowing “how” people use and wear their shoes. By using a semi-rigid orthotic, our customers benefit from this knowledge with an orthotic constructed using the ideal combination of fit and functionality.
Our pedorthic team utilizes semi-weight bearing impressions of the foot. This neutral casting method does not manipulate the foot or mechanically alter the body. The result is an accommodative orthotic that is comfortable from day one. Because of this proven approach, accommodative orthotics are the preferred choice for people who need pressure alleviation, such as diabetic patients with areas prone to ulceration. Corrections to the orthotics, if needed, are done easily on-site by our pedorthic team, after 1-3 weeks of wear. We provide a 3-year guarantee for materials and support on our custom orthotics, with no adjustment charges during that time period.
