The orthotic field involves the use of braces (orthoses) to support, assist, or protect specific areas of the body that have been weakened or damaged by birth defects, accidents, or disease. Some of the areas we specialize in include: pediatrics, cranial deformities, pectus carinatum, scoliosis, functional electrical stimulation, adult stroke, multiple sclerosis, and trauma. Our treatment includes evaluation, measurement and/or casting of the affected part of the body. An orthosis is then designed according to the physician’s prescription or the orthotist’s recommendation to the physician based upon the evaluation. Every orthosis is custom made and custom fitted to provide the most effective treatment possible for the specific condition that is being addressed. At the time of delivery you will be given specific application and use instructions for your particular device.
