A prosthetic limb can provide you with invaluable mobility and function, but there is also the potential for problems. A poorly-cared for prosthetic will have a shortened lifespan and may contribute to medical issues with your residual limb.
A pediatric brace will need to be replaced because of the normal periods of growth in childhood. Whether your child was advised by a physician to wear a back brace due to a motor vehicle accident, pediatric scoliosis, or surgical outcome, your child may refuse to wear it if it’s an uncomfortable, improper fit. At Horton’s Orthotics and Prosthetics, we are experienced in assisting adults and youths to receive the proper pediatric back bracing.
If your child has outgrown his/her pediatric brace, it may actually do more harm than good. Therefore, you need to ensure that your child’s brace is periodically checked so that you can obtain a new brace quickly if needed.
For people with foot problems, the consequences can range from minor pain to severe complications. Specialized care, including custom orthopedic shoes and orthotics, can keep these ailments under control.
Remember – your prosthetic will be ready about two weeks AFTER your insurance approves your claim. We can’t begin production until your insurance has approved your prosthetic. We know how frustrating the wait can be, and we do everything in our power to make sure that your prosthetic gets to you as soon as humanly possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
