Lower Extremity Orthoses

  • Orthotic treatment programs are one component of an effective rehabilitation program and should be used to enhance the walking potential and abilities of patients with lower extremity dysfunctions.
  • Ongoing home exercise programs and periodic reevaluation ensure the success of the program.
  • Rehabilitation adds quality to the remaining life of patients by enabling them to return to or develop activities and hobbies as well as maintain higher levels of functional independence.
  • The focus is always on the patient, and the best method to obtain success is an integrated team approach.
