ANKLE AND FOOT

 

Injuries to the ankle and foot are very common in both athletics and everyday activities. Most injuries will heal without any serious long-term disability when properly evaluated and treated. Consequently, injuries that are not managed properly, can lead to long-term problems.

At ARMAC, we strive to fit every patient with bracing that is the best fit. Your recovery is important to us. We will measure you and provide you with your correct size brace, educate you on how to properly use your brace, and answer any questions you may have to help you to achieve your injury recovery goals.

ANKLE AND FOOT ORTHOSIS (AFO)

 

Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) is an orthosis (brace) that encumbers the ankle and foot. AFOs are externally applied and intended to control positions and motion of the ankle, compensate for weakness, or correct deformities. AFOs can be used to support weak limbs, or to position a limp with contracted muscles into a more normal position. They are also used to immobilize the ankle and lower leg in the presence of arthritis or fracture, and to correct foot drop.
