We are pleased to welcome Mike Nielsen, Certified Orthotist at Benders
If you are struggling with Flat Feet, High Arches, Plantar Fasciitis, Diabetes, Neuropathy, Bunions and/or Metatarsal Pain, Mike is available to evaluate and assist you with a variety of shoes and over-the-counter orthotics. There is no charge for an Advanced Foot Evaluation which is done in person in our store. You may schedule an appointment online, stop in, or call. Mike is available at all three Benders locations: Grand Rapids, Hibbing and Duluth. As a Certified Orthotist, Mike has chosen to focus his patient care on pedorthics: the function and anatomy of the foot. He has specialized training to modify footwear and employ supportive devices to address conditions which affect the feet and lower limbs. They are an extension of the medical profession, not medical doctors, and will not diagnose.
