About Orthopedic Alternatives
Based in New York and New Jersey, Orthopedic Alternatives has provided patients with custom-fitted braces for 27 years. Committed to quality, Orthopedic Alternatives maintains accreditation by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics, Inc. (ABC), and remains dedicated to the board's principle that ?better care equals a better outcome.? The company specializes in orthotics, or the measurement, customization, and design of supports and braces for people with injuries and other medical conditions. These braces offer pain reduction, support for patients with disabling conditions, and nonsurgical treatment of conditions such as scoliosis, kyphosis, and pectus carinatum.
The staff of Orthopedic Alternatives creates braces and supports for the entire body. The company's foot orthotics are constructed with lightweight carbon fibers, which make them less cumbersome to wear. Special undershirts made of silver textiles with antimicrobial properties accompany larger body braces. Much of the clinic's practice focuses on pediatric bracing, and as parents and former brace wearers, the Orthopedic Alternatives team boasts considerable expertise in making the fitting experience pleasant for children.
Orthopedic Alternatives undertakes a formal review of all in-house practices biannually, incorporating customer feedback in this procedure. All staff members undergo continuous training and education. In addition, Orthopedic Alternatives is subject to triennial review by the ABC, which evaluates the practice on more than 140 standards. Through its membership in the ABC, Orthopedic Alternatives works to develop clear, effective communication between the referring physician and patient. Per ABC guidelines, Orthopedic Alternatives performs a clinical examination of all patients to confirm the necessity and validity of each prescribed treatment.
