Orthotics




Definitions

Orthotic treatment is a medically ordered service that provides support and protection for body parts that have been weakened or malformed due to injury, disease, disorders of nerves, muscles and bones or birth defects. An orthotist strives to restore mobility and function. Fractures, cerebral damage, muscle, tendon and cartilage tears, scoliosis and spinal cord injuries are also often helped by orthoses. Orthotic treatment can benefit those with neuromuscular conditions caused by stroke, muscular dystrophy, arthritis, diabetes and multiple sclerosis.


What we do

At Ingrid Frank Prosthetics, Inc. you will be evaluated for maximum fit, function, and comfort. Our job isn't done until your device is designed to give you satisfactory confidence and improve your quality of life to the highest degree possible. Sometimes several fittings are required to achieve the the most comfortable, supportive and lightweight device. At our first meeting, we will explain each step of the process to you and answer all your questions completely. We are here to help you complete your rehabilitative experience with us in the most supportive, empathetic and compassionate way possible. Patient education is extremely important to us. Family members and close friends have a great interest in their loved ones' care and we are sensitive to that fact. We are always eager to include everyone concerned in the learning process.

We feature light-weight, state of the art orthotics and will work with you to create a customized solution specific to your needs. We specialize in "hard to fit" clients and will work with with you to face the challenges that come up, making every effort to restore your comfort, function, and mobility to its full potential.
