An orthosis is a device designed to help with and improve biomechanical function, aid in proper joint alignment or to protect an existing limb. Joplin Prosthetics and Orthotics offers comprehensive in-house orthotic services. We assess your needs and custom design an orthoses to fit your activity level and lifestyle.

At Joplin Prosthetics and Orthotics we provide both custom fit and off-the-shelf orthotic devices to aid in the treatment of a vast array of bracing needs ranging from cranial shaping helmets for infants to spinal bracing, upper and lower extremity orthoses and custom-made shoes.

Because many orthotic devices are custom made it is not uncommon during your first visit for us to take measurements and/or an impression for use in the design and fabrication of your orthosis.  Once the device is fabricated a fitting will be scheduled within several weeks of your initial visit.  During the fitting of your custom made device it may be necessary to further customize the device to ensure optimal fit and function.

Orthoses are used to treat many conditions such as:

  • Foot pain
  • Leg or foot deformities
  • Fracture management
  • Scoliosis (curvature of the spine)
  • Postsurgical stabilization
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Contracture management (decreased joint range of motion)
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Charcot-M
  • Polio
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Neuromuscular weakness
  • Nerve injuries
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Plagiocephaly (cranial asymmetry or abnormal head shape)
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Muscular Dystrophy

Our expert team of orthotic specialists closely observe, examine and evaluate your individual needs according to your medical history and general physical condition. From this assessment, and with the help of your physician, we design and fabricate an orthosis based on your needs, prescription and functional abilities.
