*(Fremont County, Wyo.)* - We depend on our feet every day, but are we under-estimating their importance and taking them for granted? A closer look at our feet can help not only take care of foot pain, but a host of other symptoms that may seem unrelated. An abnormal alignment of our feet can lead to injuries and issues in other parts of the body, including the knee, hip, and lower back. Fremont Therapy Group’s physical therapists Kati Quayle, PT, DPT and Whittney Gomendi-Smith, PT, DPT, have experience and in-depth training related to orthopedic and neurologic foot and ankle conditions. Their training equips them with a variety of evidence-based treatment approaches, including exercise, taping techniques, and use of a broad spectrum of off-the-shelf and semi-custom orthotics that will save you money and reduce your pain for the long term. “The advanced foot and ankle training has given me a broader approach to treating all of my patients, not just those who come to me due to a foot or ankle issue” states Kati. “It is so important to consider the whole body together with the feet. As therapists, we treat back, hip, and knee impairments in conjunction with the foot in order to maintain the positive effects long-term. We always begin with simple, low-cost solutions, such as dynamic tape, changes in footwear, off the shelf orthotics, and exercise. We can further customize most off-the-shelf orthotics to fit the feet correctly. When appropriate and necessary, we will also consider custom cast orthotics.” “Because Fremont Therapy has high-speed video analysis equipment, we are able to evaluate our patients’ gait (walking) pattern with different orthotics to make sure they are the proper fit and confirm they produce the desired effect,” says Whittney, who heads up the running analysis program in the Riverton clinic. “Running analysis is not just for athletes, the technology allows us to evaluate our patients’ foot mechanics to see exactly what is happening when they’re walking or running, resulting in a better outcome for our patients.” “Kati and Whittney actively consult with all of our therapists, sharing their skills and training to add to the overall skill level available in our clinics. This is another example of how our company continues to raise the bar for therapy in the communities we serve,” states Riverton Clinic Director, Mitch Johnson, MPT, CHT. “Our therapists are constantly advancing their skills and they work together to apply what they know as in-house experts to improve the overall quality of care for every one of our patients. When you choose a clinic like Fremont Therapy group, you benefit from the broad base of advanced knowledge, skills and abilities of 25 licensed therapists.” For more information about this program or any of our services, please call (307) 856-7021 in Riverton or (307) 332-5240 in Lander. *About Fremont Therapy Group – Fremont Therapy has been serving Fremont County since 1996, and also now operates clinics in Rawlins and Green River (dba Summit Physical Therapy).
