Central Prosthetics & Orthotics has been offering bracing and support solutions to patients for over 30 years. Our practitioners provide individualized, personable, and thorough care to our patients afflicted by injury and disease.
It is our hope that our bracing and support systems empower our patients to reach their full potential and mobility. The services we provide are all encompassing whether we are treating the lower extremity, upper extremity, spinal or cervical regions. An orthosis is intended to mechanically compensate for a pathological condition. The device may be used to control, assist movement, limit or immobilize an extremity, joint or body segment for a particular reason as well as reduce weight bearing forces for a particular purpose.
Patients benefiting from an orthosis have sustained a physical impairment such as a stroke or spinal cord injury, congenital abnormalities such as cerebral palsy, a physical change like scoliosis, orthopedic injuries such as herniated disc, compression fracture, (ACL) tear or tendon rupture or neurological injury such as drop foot. These items are usually made from a cast impression of the involved limb but may be prefabricated in some instances.
