Orthotics service

The Orthotics service specialises in providing orthoses. An orthosis is an external device that supports or enhances an impaired body part. Common examples include insoles, orthopaedic footwear, foot-drop splints, long-leg callipers and spinal braces.

Orthoses are extremely helpful in a wide range of conditions where the structure or function of a body part (arm, leg, joint, muscle, spine etc) limits activity.

We offer a wide range of services and treat patients of all ages. Common conditions which require orthotic intervention are musculoskeletal disorders, neuromuscular conditions, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, sports injuries and trauma. We have specialist practice in scoliosis bracing, paediatrics, neuromuscular and foot and ankle biomechanics.
