Has Your Child Outgrown His/Her Brace?

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.

What Kinds of Foot Surgery Call for Post-Op Orthotic Shoes?

January 31, 2017

Orthotic shoes are often an important part of post-op recovery for some foot surgeries.

With 26 bones in the human foot ─ and all the stress and pressures we place on our feet − it is little wonder that feet are so susceptible to injury and the need for various treatments, including foot surgery.

The average recovery time for most foot surgeries, according to Ortho Foot and Ankle, can take from 4-6 weeks for general healing through rest and some gentle physical therapy. Ultimately, it can take several additional months for the bones to fully heal.
