Orthotics are external devices such as splints or braces that help patients control, guide or immobilize an extremity or joint, reduce weight-bearing forces, aid in the rehabilitation of a fracture following removal of a cast, and/or correct the function of a body part to alleviate pain. Orthopaedics East carries a variety of orthotics. Your orthopedic physician and care team may recommend an orthotic device for your treatment.
