New Amputee – Exercise, Stretching & Orthosis
Exercise and stretching may help make your orthosis most effective, particularly for anyone suffering from a posterior tibial tendon issue or other discomfort.
While orthosis technology offers people who require external support achieve an optimal position or improved motion, it can be very helpful to check with your orthotics or prostheses specialist in Traverse City, Cadillac, Petoskey or other locations about additional ways to improve your mobility.
When orthosis can help compensate for weakness or physical malformations, prescribed exercises and stretching may be an important part of improving your natural strength and mobility. When people are struggling with these conditions due to injuries sustained in accidents or high-impact sports, attention to prescribed, moderate exercises may also promote healing.
Whatever the cause, symptoms typically include pain, the inability to walk or stand for extended periods of time, and a shift in the position of the bones in the feet. Orthosis braces will offer the benefit of supporting, aligning, correcting, and improving the way the foot and ankle function.
Advancements in technology offer many new options not just to amputees, but also to those who may be looking for cutting edge foot-drop devices. Moderate exercise with targeted strengthening and stretching in conjunction with orthosis may help to manage pain and improve functionality for clients.
