We offer a variety of pediatric orthotics designed for the changing needs of children.
It goes without saying that any medical treatment is quite different for children than it is for adults. With that in mind, if you have a child in need of orthotics, it makes sense to work with a company that is equipped and experienced to provide pediatric orthotics. At Tierney Orthotics and Prosthetics, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, we offer a variety of custom solutions for children and will be actively involved in making modifications and replacements as your child grows.
One of the most common problems that pediatric orthotics can address is being a part of scoliosis treatment. Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that can present itself during adolescent growth periods. Pediatric spinal orthotics designed to be worn either full time or just during the night can be a part of preventing this condition from worsening and can present life-long challenges if not treated.
There are also pediatric orthotics for other childhood concerns, including neuromuscular conditions, such as cerebral palsy, where support is needed as a mobility solution. We offer a variety of lower-limb orthotics for children and be adjusted as their needs change.
We work with area physicians, physical therapists, and surgeons, so feel free to have your doctor place a referral so that we can provide the pediatric orthotics your child requires for improved quality of life, healing, and other benefits. We are happy to answer any questions you might have about what to expect from the process so that you can prepare yourself and your child for what a visit to see us entails. Our staff is wonderful with children and will make them feel welcome and relaxed. Call today to learn more.
