    I've never heard of Othstetics either. Definitely not obstetrics? - Obstetrics deals with childcare and the care of the mother. You often get Obstetrics/ Gynecology Depts.

    I have to go to the orthotics dept at hospital i think coz of my flat feet. Causes problems with knees and hips .. everything is in line on your body so is all affected by each other. I have to wear inserts in my shoes and am much better now.
