Neuro‐musculoskeletal Correction or Protection From head to toe
Orthotic services performed by Certified Orthotists assure that patients receive the highest level of care for their neuro‐musculoskeletal (involving the nerves, muscle, joints, bones and ligaments) or musculoskeletal impairments. As healthcare’s primary specialists in the implementation of braces or supports, we work with prescribing physicians or therapists to correct, support or protect parts of the anatomy. Our goal is always to achieve maximum functionality or to replace lost function.

Orthotists provide the following full range of services
