Orthotics

An orthotic is a device that is applied externally to the body to prevent and correct deformities in order to improve function of the area affected, allowing the patient to have a better quality of life.

Orthotics can be suitable for a wide range of children and adults suffering from pain and discomfort caused by a neurological, musculoskeletal, developmental or rheumatological problem.
