A support, brace, or splint used to re-align, prevent, or correct the functioning of the body. These are also intended to correct an abnormal or irregular walking pattern, by slightly altering the angles at which the foot strikes the surface.
Focus on your Rehabilitation
Your first appointment will be no different from the usual osteopathic consultation and evaluation (see osteopathy page). You will be asked specific questions related to your particular sport or even to demonstrate some movements. Your diagnosis and treatment plan will be discussed in the usual way.
Treatment is likely to involve the use of osteopathic techniques within the treatment room combined with a more specific exercise based program in the studio gym. The aim is to return to full physical activity.
