orthotic-therapyWhat is an orthotic?  The University of Newcastle defines an orthotic as “The use of an appliance or apparatus to support, align, prevent or correct deformity or to modify position or motion and improve the function of the moveable parts of the body” – It is a device that changes the ground to suit the individual needs of the person (child or adult).

If patients are walking on hard unyielding surfaces that will not assist the patient with comfort and compensation, then we need to create a new walking surface to maintain the foot in a neutral position.
