Werner has been a practicing member of the orthopaedic allied health care profession since 2004 and opened Kinetic Orthotics in 2013. As a result of his keen interest in lower extremity early in his career, Werner became a Canadian Certified Pedorthist and Canadian Pedorthic Technician in 2009. Combining his experiences in a variety of orthopaedic treatments provides him with a unique skill set to assess and effectively provide pedorthic treatment through footwear and custom foot orthotic intervention and modifications, bracing, and athletic taping.
As a member in good standing of both the Pedorthic Association of Canada and The College of Pedorthics of Canada, Werner continues to advance his variety of pedorthic skills, such as gait assessments, orthotic manufacturing, footwear modifications and high-risk patient care. His dedication to patient care and detail in pedorthic treatments has provided him with active collaborations with orthopaedic surgeons in paediatric and adult populations. Werner enjoys educating his patients about the complexities of the feet and ankles and believes understanding the cause is the first step of injury prevention. He continues to be an active proctor of pedorthic practical exams to uphold high standards for future Pedorthists.
Werner's fluency in both English and Cantonese allows him to practice in both languages.
Outside of operating Kinetic Orthotics, Werner enjoys mountain biking, road cycling, running, skiing, sport climbing, and being a fifth-degree black belt karate instructor. If this active lifestyle isn't enough to keep him busy, he is also happily married and a proud father of 2 children.
