What is Orthotics, is it the same as Bracing?

“Orthosis” is a fancy word for “brace.” “Orthotics” are specifically designed shoe inserts that help to modify or correct your biomechanics, and reduce the stress placed on your foot/ ankle/ knee/ hip/ low back during activity. Orthotics generally control the amount or rate of pronation; which can cause undo stress on the body during weight-bearing activity.
