What do we do?

Assess:

Your treating doctor (or health care professional) will refer you to us for an assessment. We will assess for appropriate braces using a combination of clinical techniques.

Not everyone requires a referral to see us. If you do not have a referral and are interested in making an appointment please contact us to see if you need one.

Prescribe:

We take the time to discuss various bracing options, what brace(s) would be best suited to you and why.

Fit:

We custom fit all of our braces and teach you about the brace including correct procedure to take the brace on and off

Adjust:

All of our reviews are included in the cost of our braces. Some braces will need to be reviewed periodically and others will only need reviewing if you have a question or issue with the brace. If you have any questions or issues with your brace please contact us ASAP!
