What are Orthotics?
Orthotics is a medical field specialising in the design, manufacture and application of externally applied devices to improve the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal system.
Conditions include: musculoskeletal, neurological developmental, osteoarthritis and rheumatological problems, diabetes and cerebral palsy.
The service includes self referral assessment, and reports (medico legal report writing). Also, there is an option for Domiciliary (home) visits.
