ORTHOTICS

There are a variety of devices available classified as “orthotics”. Most of them stabilize and support a portion of the body. This could be a joint such as a knee, wrist, hip or ankle. Sometimes it is a portion of the body like the spine/trunk or feet. Orthotics is a head-to-toe service with numerous options to treat each diagnosis.

Common devices utilized today would be an Ankle-Foot-Orthoses (AFO). They can be used in a variety of applications including after a stroke to help your foot clear the ground when you walk, also post-operatively to stabilize the ankle and prevent deformity during recovery. Another is a Knee Orthosis (KO). They can either be prefabricated devices to stabilize the knee joint after years of arthritic degeneration or custom bracing for ligament injuries such as ACL tears.
