After receiving a prescription from your physician for an orthopedic brace, you will most likely be referred to an orthotist, orthotic company or clinic team. An Orthotist is a trained healthcare professional who specializes in making a wide range of custom fit braces. It is the orthotists job to cast, measure, build, fit, maintain, and educate you on the proper wear and care of your brace. Often your physician will make the referral to a clinic team. Orthotic clinical teams for children are especially important because of changes in growth and development. This team is made up of the physician, nurse, orthotist and therapist all working together to achieve the best possible outcome. Remember the most important member and contributor to the team is YOU.
