What are orthotics?

Orthotics are medical devices used to control or correct biomechanical or structural abnormalities. At P&SIC we can design and prescribe foot orthoses that will assist in the management and treatment of lower limb and foot pain. These can be used to stabilize the foot during walking and during sports, correct limb length differences and overuse injuries that have troubled people for years.
