Orthotics

Orthotics is the practice of designing, fabricating, fitting, adjusting, or servicing of an orthosis. An orthosis is generally prescribed to correct or alleviate neuromuscular or musculoskeletal dysfunction, disease, injury, or deformity. Orthotics may be prescribed by a physician to control or guide an extremity, provide joint alignment or aid in rehabilitation after a fracture.
