A pedorthist is the best to help with your shoes, as he can make an impression of your foot and custom order orthotics for your shoes. Look in the phone book under "pedorthist" or "orthopedic shoes." (The Pedorthic Footwear Association can be contacted at 800-673-8447 or http://www.pedorthic.org )

Occupational therapists, usually employed by hospitals and cancer centers, are excellent resources for equipment and procedures to promote quality of life for debilitating conditions. The American Occupational Therapy Association can be contacted at 301-652-2682 or at http://www.aota.org .
