Orthotics is the design, fabrication, fitting and supervised use of custom-made braces and other devices such as knee, spinal, neck and cervical braces and foot orthotics, that provide external support to treat disorders, weakened or injured joints and/or muscle groups. Musculoskeletal disorders are ailments of the back, extremities or joints caused by traumatic injuries, chronic conditions, diseases, congenital disorders or injuries resulting from sports or other activities.
In some instances, it is necessary to design and fabricate a custom orthosis for a specific need. The orthotist custom fits an off-the-shelf device to the patient's dimensions, or incorporates additional components to achieve the desired results. An orthosis may be worn temporarily until a weakness or injury is overcome, or on a permanent basis to facilitate impaired function due to a congenital or degenerative condition.
Our Orthotic Team create a range of precise, custom-fit items, from complex bracing systems to spinal and neck orthotics, diabetic shoes to cranial bands. Often the goal is to increase mobility while decreasing rehabilitation time. Orthoses can be especially helpful in preventing an existing problem from getting worse. Treatment protocols encompass pediatrics, adults, neuromuscular pathology, spinal, cranial, spinal cord injury, sports, and upper and lower extremity.
