What is Orthotics?

Orthotics are orthopedic devices designed to treat or adjust various biomechanical foot disorders. They may be simple, commercially made devices, such as cushioned heel cups or insoles for shoes. These are sold over-the-counter in drug stores or other retail establishments. The best orthotics, however, are custom-tailored devices specifically crafted to meet the needs of a particular individual. This is done by making an impression of the foot called a cast. The impressions in the cast duplicate any misalignments in the foot. Specialists in an orthotic laboratory can then correct the misalignments with compensation and stabilization techniques. The finished orthotic is then placed in the patient's shoe and helps keep the foot in proper alignment. Depending upon the patient's needs, the orthotic may have padding to cushion the foot against the weight of the body.

What is Orthopaedics?

Orthopaedics: Orthopaedic medicine treats a wide variety of injuries and disorders in children and adults pertaining to the skeleton and its supporting muscles (musculoskeletal or MSK system), including:

* joint destruction because of arthritis and fractures resulting from osteoporosis;
* trauma resulting from industrial and motor-vehicle accidents and sports injuries;
* spinal deformities (scoliosis of the spine) and other inherited skeletal deformities;
* neuromuscular conditions (such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, para- and quadraplegia)
* bone disorders (such as avascular necrosis).

What is Podiatry?

Podiatry is a field of medicine that strives to improve the overall health and well-being of patients by focusing on preventing, diagnosing, and treating conditions associated with the foot and ankle.
