Physical Therapy -> Assisted Device -> Orthotic


Orthotics can be made to give you support at your foot, ankle, knee, hip, back, neck, and/or head. PT will assess the patient’s need for extra stability. These can be: an SMO or AFO- both types of foot orthotics; HKFO- large device that covers the ankle to hip typically after surgery or a stroke; TLSO- back brace after surgery or for scoliosis. Another type of need is a cranial orthotic- for babies that have flat spots on their heads (most commonly plagiocephaly or other forms of -cephaly).
