Ankle-foot orthoses, commonly known as AFOs, represent a pivotal solution in orthotic care, especially for those seeking support for muscle weakness, joint instability, or high muscle tone. At OPC Health, our AFO Braces and AFO Orthoses are custom-made for each individual, catering to the unique needs of the foot, ankle, and leg, finishing just below the knee.
What is an AFO?
AFOs are meticulously crafted lower limb orthoses, often prescribed to enhance mobility and address conditions such as muscle weakness, joint instability, or high muscle tone. At OPC Health, our AFOs play a crucial role in preventing deformities, increasing mobility, fostering independence, protecting and supporting healing injuries post-surgery, and reducing pain.
Putting the AFO on Correctly
Ensuring optimal comfort and effectiveness requires proper application. Follow these guidelines:
Standard Wear and Gradual Adjustment
Adjusting to AFOs may take time. Gradually increase wearing time by at least an hour each day.
