Orthotics for any purpose
If you’ve never heard of orthotics, you’re not alone. Few people have had experience with orthotics as a treatment for medical conditions, making them a fairly uncommon yet practical treatment device.
Essentially, an orthotic is a hard piece of plastic used to align, straighten or a guide a body part, joint, or muscle into a correct posture on non-painful position. Mainly used to keep joint or alignment problems from worsening, chiropractors occasionally turn to orthotics.
