Orthotics are orthopedic devices which are designed to treat, adjust, alleviate, or support various bio-mechanical issues, disorders or injuries. Some are simple off the counter commercially made devices while most are created and customized to meet the needs of a particular individual with his/her issues or injury.
In a busy orthopedic practice orthotic appliances help the physician to better treat and care for his patients without the use of a cast.
