Bracing

At Positive Steps Therapy, we are able to provide ongoing education and training for parents and children in the care of bracing.  Our physical therapists are available, working in concert with a child’s referring physician(s), to evaluate a child’s bracing needs.  Follow up appointments are conducted to ensure proper use and fit.  As the child develops, our team can evaluate if the brace is continuing to appropriately assist with a child’s ability to function, as well as make recommendations as appropriate.  Treatment will be based on our expert evaluation of your child’s condition and the likelihood for a good outcome.  If bracing and physical therapy are the prescribed option, we can offer a comprehensive functional plan.  Example diagnoses which require bracing include:  hypotonia, cerebral palsy, toe walking, and spina bifida to name a few.
