Spring is in the air. Longer days and warmer temperatures mean a return to the magnificent outdoors of western North Carolina. Our region hosts more hiking trails, state and national parks, forests, waterfalls, caverns, and wildlife viewing opportunities than one could explore in a lifetime.
Exploring nature in the mountains around Asheville often requires a certain level of mobility. Those with a limb difference face unique challenges every day, but you don’t have to go through it alone.
At the Orthopedic Appliance Company, we specialize in restoring mobility and independence to individuals living with limb loss or differences. There is no “one size fits all” in modern prosthetics. We understand prosthetic devices should be one of a kind, fully customized for the patient's unique physiology, capabilities, and lifestyle aspirations.
Our staff can help restore mobility for you or the person in your life who has gone through amputation or has an atypical limb difference. No matter if the limb difference was caused by a congenital condition from birth or a limb loss resulting from a traumatic injury, disease, or surgery,
We know parents can face significant difficulty if their child has a limb difference. Our staff is trained in helping with not only adult conditions but also in pediatric treatment. At each step, your treatment will be executed with expertise and compassion.
While prosthetics can aid many people living with limb differences, they may not be suitable for everyone, especially if the limb difference is mild. Limb difference is more common than many people realize. You are never in it alone.
If you have any questions regarding living with limb differences with or without a prosthetic device, the Amputee Coalition is a fantastic non-profit organization focused on empowering people affected by limb loss to achieve their full potential through education, support, and advocacy.
The Orthopedic Appliance Company has provided Asheville residents with the highest quality custom orthotics since 1960. We offer a complete line of devices from head to toe. And all orthotic devices are measured, fabricated, and fitted by our skilled staff.
