Orthotics

Orthotics is a specialty within the medical field concerned with the design, manufacture, and application of orthoses. An orthosis (plural: orthoses) is "an externally applied device used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal system." An orthotician is the primary medical clinician responsible for the prescription, manufacture, and management of orthoses. An orthosis may be used to:
  • Control, guide, limit, and/or immobilize an extremity, joint, or body segment for a particular reason
  • Restrict movement in a given direction
  • Assist movement generally
  • Reduce weight bearing forces for a particular purpose
  • Aid rehabilitation from fractures after the removal of a cast
  • Otherwise correct the shape and/or function of the body, to provide easier movement capability, or reduce pain
Orthotics combines knowledge of anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, biomechanics, and engineering. Orthoses are made from various types of materials, including thermoplastics, carbon fiber, metals, elastic, EVA, fabric, or a combination of similar materials. Some designs may be purchased at a local retailer; others are more specific and require a prescription from a physician, who will fit the orthosis according to the patient's requirements. We offer a free foot exam to determine if you can benefit from orthotics. We also provide insoles, arch supports, and foot braces.
