Orthotic Management of the Lower Extremity (MWG-2)

Orthotists and Pedorthists, you will want to join us! We will cover the most common indications for use of custom AFOs and which AFO style may best address those indications.

We will also provide valuable information on addressing our patients who are at risk for falls, and show some new product styles!

Finding the best shoe to wear with an AFO can be challenging. You will gather useful information on footwear selection and modifications that may greatly enhance the overall effectiveness of an AFO.
