All About AFOs
An AFO, or ankle-foot orthosis, is a type of custom ankle brace constructed of hard material and used to treat certain conditions that affect your ability to walk safely and correctly. A doctor will most often prescribe an AFO to help with a condition known as foot drop. Many conditions can cause foot drop or other similar mobility problems.
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Lou Gehrig’s Disease / ALS
- Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease (CMT)
- Cerebrovascular Accident (Stroke)
- Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s Disease
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Nerve Injury
An AFO supports your weak limb, stabilizes your ankle and foot, and helps your toe clear the ground as you walk, thereby decreasing your risk of tripping and falling. Unlike a walking boot, which is often used for a short period following an injury or surgery, most ankle-foot orthotics are prescribed for chronic or permanent medical conditions. So, a great fit is essential.
