What is Orthotics?

Orthotics is the design, fabrication, and fitting of devices that provide external support or assist Ability-orthotics-custom-fit-child-mold-300weak or abnormal joints and/or muscle groups. Musculoskeletal disorders, joint weakness, back problems, or the inability of any joint or muscle group to function correctly can greatly decrease an individuals quality of life and mobility. These problems can be caused by:

• Congenital Factors
• Traumatic Injury/CVA (Strokes)
• Chronic Conditions
• Sports Injuries
• Degenerative Disease

Orthotics help patients with these disorders by providing appropriate corrective, assistive and supportive devices. In some instances, it is necessary to design and fabricate a custom orthosis for a specific need. In others, the orthotist custom fits an off-the-shelf device to the patient's dimensions, or incorporates additional components to achieve the desired results.

Ability-orthotics-personal-service-300An orthosis may be worn temporarily until a weakness or injury is overcome, or on a permanent basis to facilitate impaired function due to a congenital or degenerative condition. Our practitioners at ABILITY Prosthetics & Orthotics of Nevada start with creating a welcoming and open communication atmosphere with their patient. They want to get to know each patient and create a personalized Orthotics Care program as every patient's needs and abilities are different.

Ability-orthotics-shoes-300ABILITY takes great pride in the oversized lab area in the practice, which allows for all the "customization" to begin. Our practitioners have the "ability" to design, create, modify, and assure that the orthotic they will be donning on a patient is the best it can be and it's all done right in the office, without having to send anything away. Although, there are occasions when a brace or device will need to be sent to a central fabrication lab due to special order materials needed for fabrication. An orthosis may be worn temporarily until a weakness or injury is overcome, or on a permanent basis to facilitate impaired function due to a congenital or degenerative condition. 

Travis, Well, you did it. The stability you gifted me with, helped the weakness to health. In fact when I went for one final interview, stated there was nothing they could do - Yeah! So some time in physical therapy. Sure glad you were there to fix me up. Thanks big guy you are on my hero wall. Thanks again.

I wish there was an option for excellent service. As for my experience with Travis and Matt they both were very professional when dealing with my grandchildren. They made them both feel very comfortable in the office. They helped with my grandson’s instep and my granddaughters brace. My granddaughter was so happy and smiling with her brace from ABILITY Prosthetics and Orthotics. She was able to do things she was not able to with her previous brace from somewhere else. She finally felt like she had control and was heard, something she had never felt before. Most people don’t understand how important control is especially for children. She told me “grandma Travis listened to me about how I felt and he was so friendly making me happy.” I don’t want to forget to mention the receptionist, she was very friendly and sweet dealing with my grandchildren. Excellent service, thank you!

Thanks for the shoes. I shattered my calcaneus last February and am now able to walk after 5 months. They are very comfortable and have great support. Thanks so much.
