Orthotic Fitting & Management
Physical therapy on its own is often not enough to improve gait for patients with neurologic injuries.
This is especially true for those suffering from drop foot, ankle or knee weakness, or frequent falls.
We offer recommendations for bracing that assists the lower leg through the proper gait pattern to improve both safety and quality of life.
Orthotic Fitting & Management for the Non-Amputated Lower Extremity
We have onsite custom casting & molding capabilities and make recommendations based on gait pattern and foot positioning, while also working closely with orthotic providers in the area to provide our patients with braces that can radically improve their gait.
Once braces are received, we work with patients on practicing normal gait mechanics and improving safety with their device.
Benefits of Orthotic Fitting & Management Include:
- Reduced Risk of Falls
- Improved Mobility at Home and in the Community
- Return to Normal Gait Pattern
- Prevention of Compensation Patterns or Future Injuries
"Compassionate and Knowledgeable"
One of the nicest and most competent doctors I have ever been to. Very compassionate and knowledgeable. Took his time, explained everything thoroughly. I highly recommend him!! Thank you Dr. Lesley for a wonderful experience. Also his office staff and nurses are wonderful and the wait time was the shortest I’ve ever experienced. A+ in my books!!View On Google
Excellent diagnosis and treatment. Both myself and my wife have used Dr. Lesley and his PA Maddie. They are excellent at listening to the problem and making a spot on diagnosis. Dr. Lesley is not quick to recommend any invasive treatment. He and Maddie attempt to solve the issue with the least stress and discomfort. The two are highly recommended.View On Google
