Often, health issues lead us to physical therapy. And while physical therapy can improve our mobility and comfort level over time, it’s not an immediate fix. That’s why, to help us maintain a level of independence and mobility, specific types of orthotics or medical equipment may be prescribed.

At Hamilton Physical Therapy, we believe that there is no shame in utilizing medical equipment to help get around while recovering. Our team is ready to provide the care and advice you need to return to a state of normalcy. Call 410-444-2770 or book an appointment online to begin your care journey!

FAQs on Orthotics:

Why Should Patients Consider the Use of Orthotics or Medical Equipment Aids?

Medical equipment mobility aids and orthotics such as splints, insoles, and braces are designed specifically to help people who are struggling to move or who need external support, respectively. Using these tools give patients the ability to enjoy greater freedom and independence. These tools and devices also provide additional support to a recovering patient, which helps to speed up recovery time and reduces their risk of further injury.

 

What Are Some Common Examples of Orthotics / Medical Equipment Aids?

The following are all common examples of orthotics and medical equipment aids, which can be prescribed to a patient based on the nature of their treatment and recovery needs:

  • Ankle Foot Orthosis (to support the foot and ankle)
  • Cervical brace (to support the neck)
  • Dynamic splint (to assist in joint care) 
  • Lumbosacral Orthosis (to support the spine and/or lower back)
  • Canes (to provide additional support to the body overall)
  • Crutches (to transfer weight from the legs to the upper body)
  • Walkers (to provide stability and balance to a struggling individual)

 

How Will I Know if I Need an Orthotic or Medical Aid?

During the course of physical therapy, beneficial orthotics and medical equipment aids will be discussed and reviewed. Based on this conversation, a patient may be sent to a specific local store to purchase their equipment, or they may be directed to an online seller to ensure they can find and receive what they need in a timely manner.
