Foot, knee or back orthotics may be required to support a segment of the body which suffers from a mechanical dysfunction. The brace is called an Orthosis.
Orthotics is the profession that deals with the external support of the body and encompasses both neuro-muscular and muscular-skeletal problems suffered by patients. The patient may require support to any segment of the body which suffers from a mechanical dysfunction, such as the foot, knee or back for example. The brace is called an Orthosis (sometimes referred to as a surgical appliance).
Patients can be referred via a GP, Consultant or self referral.
Realignment of the musculoskeletal system is a conservative form of treatment that typically reduces the pain symptoms by re-aligning the joints to enable a more effective gait pattern and reducing rotational forces this helps reduce pain along with weight distribution and shock-attenuation.
The provision of foot orthotics, knee orthotics or back orthotics is non invasive and is applied to the body externally.
