At FootGeekz we strive to provide edutainment for your feet. Through our online videos and blog posts we’re looking to educate the world on the world of pedorthics, a field, so young, it has yet to find its way into the Oxford dictionary. If you google “pedorthist”, the profession, you will find this description on Wikipedia, which gives a broad description of the role a pedorthist plays in the medical community:
Pedorthist is the title of a professional who has specialized training to modify footwear and employ supportive devices to address conditions which affect the feet and lower limbs.
CJ, which is short for Christian Johannsen, is a Certified Pedorthist with 14+ years experience in pedorthics. Over the years he’s worked with everything from arthritic toes to diabetic foot ulcers. In his spare time he loves to play in the great outdoors. He recently started a hiking group on meetup called “Vancouver Mountain Goats“.
Prior to working at Foot Solutions, Chuck gained valuable experience in the orthopedic support and bracing sector. As pedorthist he takes great care to find the best shoes for his clients’ foot conditions and makes adjustments as needed. He’s got a multitude of hobbies and loves to let big bubbles loose on the weekends in Vancouver’s parks.
