Orthotics

Orthotics are pieces of medical equipment that can help improve body parts. Orthotics generally include most devices that correct, improve or support body abnormalities. Musculoskeletal deformities are particularly aided by custom orthotics.

Some common conditions corrected or aided by orthotics include fractures, scoliosos, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and various impairments resulting from a spinal injury or stroke.

An orthosis may be used to:

  • Control, guide, limit and/or immobilize an extremity, joint or body segment for a particular reason
  • To restrict movement in a given direction
  • To assist movement generally
  • To reduce weight bearing forces for a particular purpose
  • To aid rehabilitation from fractures after the removal of a cast
  • To otherwise correct the shape and/or function of the body, to provide easier movement capability or reduce pain
