Orthotics

Orthotics is the use of braces to correct or support weak or ineffective joints or muscles. The orthosis (the brace or support) may be custom fabricated or
pre-manufactured and fit to meet individual needs.

Examples of the type of orthoses provided are back braces, knee braces, splints, ankle braces and wrist braces. Most orthotic services are covered benefits under Saskatchewan Health with a requistision from an approved medical specialist. Some items such as certain knee braces will be cost shared and we carry some retail items such as back corsets and tennis elbow braces which are available for purchase. 

Appointments are required for orthotic services.
