Benefits of Ankle Foot Orthosis
Not only can an AFO help with the various conditions but the goal of an AFO is to provide various benefits to the ankle. An AFO will help with providing shock absorption while also protecting the foot and ankle. They will also redistribute the pressure points on the foot and make sure the ankle and foot will not move too much to promote healing. An AFO can also provide stability while also helping treat foot or ankle alignment. For example, for overpronation or excess supination, the AFO helps improve the symptoms caused by these conditions.
How it works
Our certified Orthotists and technicians will first take the prescription provided by your doctor. After that, we will perform an initial assessment to examine your leg. We will also help you with any questions you may have. Then we will take a cast or 3D scan of your leg to get the perfect fit for your orthosis. Using this mould we will make the orthosis to fit the prescription and your specific requirements. Contact us today and see how we can help.
