You’ve probably come across an orthosis at some point in your life, whether it was an insole for your shoe or a brace for your knee. But there is so much more to the world of orthotics and prosthetics in helping people function and move optimally. On our show today is Andrew Myers, a Certified Prosthetist and Orthotist with over 35 years of clinical experience.

We discuss different types of orthoses, both for the upper and lower limbs, and their uses. Andrew dives into his unique experience working with high level atheletes and how he works closely with physical therapists in the plan of care for return to play. He also talks about the need for proper orthopedic evaluations and how orthotics can help people prophylactically as well.

Andrew is a graduate of New York University and has been a senior executive for several public and private companies in the orthopedic rehabilitative field. Andrew owns and operates two organizations, Eschen Prosthetic and Orthotic Labs and New England Orthotic and Prosthetic Systems. Combined, these two organization have 27 locations across New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts making it one of the largest independent orthotic and prosthetic companies in the Northeast. Andrew’s primary focus has been working with practitioners to deliver clinical excellence and the formation of patient-centric programs which enhance the lives and outcomes of patients.
