An orthosis is used to repair, support or immobilise a body part in order to heal it, to improve function or to manage pain. At Comprehensive Prosthetics and Orthotics, we provide orthoses for patients who suffer from stroke, osteoarthiritis, traumatic injury to the brain or spinal cord, joint replacement, scoliosis, and general foot and back pain. Apart from these, orthoses can also help with relieving pain in hand, elbow, arm and wrist conditions such as carpal tunnel and tennis elbow and also lower extremity conditions such as plantar fasciitis, stretch fractures and arch pain.
Our orthists not only provides great service and care but is also in touch with the latest technologies in orthotics. CPO is also a certified outfitter of the Walk-Aide, a device that utilizes electrical stimulation to assist with the functionality of the calf muscles to enable a patient to walk more naturally and comfortably. This device is used for a condition known as foot drop, which occurs when a condition or injury causes a disruption in the messages sent by the nerves to the leg muscles, causing the foot to drag while walking.
