Pediatric Orthotic Services
Pediatrics and orthotics is a world away from adult orthotics. Tony Denson our lead orthotist has over 25 years in specialty pediatrics orthotics. It is not enough to just make a custom molded brace that fits and supports well. The care plan also has to adjust for growth moderately so a brace can be useful for several months until it is truly outgrown.
Children Braces need to offer support and comfort and enhance as much freedom of motion as possible.
Pediatric braces help hold growing bones in straighter alignment if the joint among the bones are flexible. If the joints are inflexible or if bones are pulled out of balance by tight muscles,ligaments or tendons; then the goal is to maintain current position and not allow further misalignment.
