Orthotics

Quality orthotic care is one of the foundations on which Wright & Filippis was built, and today it is still at the forefront. Wright & Filippis is proud to employ the largest certified orthotic staff in Michigan. We have specialists in the area of pediatrics, scoliosis, sports medicine, rehabilitation services, helmets and more.
Orthotics, or most commonly called “braces,” are devices worn on arms, legs, back or neck to support or strengthen a body part. Some orthotics are pre-made, or “off the shelf,” and are custom fit to the individual patient. Many orthotics are custom made. Measurements or an impression of the body part is taken by a clinician to ensure a proper fit for each patient.

Wright & Filippis specializes in devices made of lightweight plastics, metals and carbon laminates. This allows our patients access to state-of-the-art techniques in orthotics and the newest technology. Wright & Filippis cares about our patients and work to make sure we are up to date with newest products, policies and procedures. We are proud to say as a team we are able to provide patients a better quality of life. Not many people can say that they get to make a difference in people’s lives.
