What is Orthotics?

Orthotics is a specialist area in the field of medicine concerned with the design and manufacture of non invasive external devices which can be applied to any area of the body to correct deformities, relieve soft tissue injuries and improve whole body alignment. A person who specializes in the field of Orthotics is known as an Orthotist. Here at the Mayo Clinic we work closely with Mr. Steve Allerton Orthotist of Allmed Healthcare and his son Jordan.
