Testimonial

I am 13 years old, and I have been playing girl's basketball, in different leagues, for many years now. After breaking my nose more than once during games, I was thinking about the possibility of not having the sport I absolutely love, in my life. It really was a distressing time for me. Then I heard about this custom made "mask" being worn by the pros. I did some research on the internet and found the man that makes these masks; Jeremy Murray from the Michigan Hand and Sports Rehab center. My prayers were answered and I am back in the game!

The mask has become part of me; part of my uniform. During games, my face really takes a beating and with the mask on, I do not even blink. I no longer realize the pummeling my face takes because of the protection that the mask gives me.

The great part is that I did not have to fly to Michigan to have the mask made. I had my orthopedist, Dr. Douglas Avella, make a mold of my upper face and I shipped it off to Mr. Murray. That was it! Done! The mask came back a perfect fit, and I feel alive again! As corny as it sounds, having this protective face mask that fits "like a glove" has truly been a gift from above! Thanks Jeremy Murray!!

Orthotic Services

Orthotists are allied health professionals who provide care to patients with neuromuscular and musculoskeletal impairments that contribute to functional limitation or disability by designing, fabricating, and fitting a patient with an orthosis. Orthoses, also known as braces, provide external support or protection to a person for a specific pathology, injury, or condition. Orthoses may be pre-fabricated, custom fit, or custom fabricated.

We treat the entire spectrum of pathologies that may require the skills of an orthotist. Unlike other orthotic facilities, we have the unique ability to evaluate and treat each individual in a personal environment where the practioner that performs your initial consultation is the same individual who will fabricate, fit, and follow up with your case. We are able to provide orthotic care through the use of pre-fabricated, custom fit, and custom fabricated orthoses specific to your situation including high temperature and low temperature materials. As both a Certified Orthotist and Registered Occupational Therapist, Jeremy has not only performed the orthotic treatment of injuries through use of the orthoses he makes, he has also spent years performing the actual rehabilitation of your injury/condition.
