At Walkabout, we offer a full range of orthotic services. Orthotics is the art and science of designing, fabricating and fitting orthopedic braces, which can also be referred to as splints or supports. Prescribed by a physician, these orthoses protect, support and improve the function of various parts of the body and may be needed due to birth deficiencies, the result of an accident, or because disease may have taken its toll on the body. Orthoses provide many benefits including protecting areas of the body from further deformities, giving function to an area of the body that may be weakened or injured, and replacing or enhancing functionality and stability. Walkabout's certified orthotists create a full line of orthotic products, a majority of which are custom built for the patient right here in our on-site lab. As a Walkabout patient you can be sure your comfort and satisfaction are our highest priorities.
