Pediatric orthoses are designed to apply strategic correction and promote stability as a child grows. Often, we are one part of a child’s larger support team. In these cases, collaboration with other health professionals involved in the child’s care ensures we are providing the most appropriate device to achieve physical and/or occupational therapy goals.
A wide range of custom and pre-fabricated bracing options are available for the head, neck, spine, and upper/lower extremities. AFOs (ankle foot orthoses) and KAFOs (knee ankle foot orthoses), orthotic shoe inserts, and scoliosis bracing are just a few examples. Many products can be personalized with youthful designs. For those using lower extremity orthoses, our practitioners offer guidance on selecting shoes that will accommodate braces.
