Orthoses are devices you wear to either to change the way the body part works whilst moving or provide cushioning or support. Orthoses are used to:

  • Control, guide, limit and/or immobilize an extremity, joint or body segment for a particular reason
  • To restrict movement in a given direction
  • To assist movement generally
  • To reduce weight bearing forces for a particular purpose
  • To aid rehabilitation from fractures after the removal of a cast
  • To otherwise correct the shape and/or function of the body, to provide easier movement capability or reduce pain

Our Orthotists work closely within multi disciplinary teams and provide a comprehensive examination and assessment. They prescribe appropriate orthotic treatments which can help increase your mobility and give you more independence.

Some commonly prescribed orthoses include:

  • Foot orthoses for Plantar Fasciitis and foot pain
  • Footwear and total contact insoles for Diabetes
  • Ankle and foot orthoses for Cerebral Palsy, Stroke and multiple sclerosis
  • Knee and ankle foot orthoses for Polio
  • Spinal orthoses for Scoliosis and Osteoporosis
