Evolve Prosthetics & Orthotics offers pediatric orthotics for children of all ages in Las Vegas, Nevada. When fitting orthotic devices for kids, there are many similarities to fitting adults. However, a qualified orthotist will be mindful of two factors: growth spurts and a child’s functional needs. You can trust Evolve to find or create the right device for your child and make sure they are comfortable.
Conditions That Affect The Lower Limbs
The majority of devices prescribed for children are for congenital disorders affecting the lower limbs. Orthotics offer solutions for a wide range of issues and injuries. In some instances, they do correct a problem permanently, but that is not always the case. Many of these conditions require life-long treatment.
Evolve Prosthetics & Orthotics provides off-the-shelf and custom orthotic options for many conditions that affect mobility – both common and rare.
- In-Toeing (Pigeon Toes)
- Drop Foot
- Cerebral Palsy
- Spina Bifida
- Toe Walking
- Club Foot
- Osteogenesis Imperfecta
- Developmental Dysplasia Of The Hip
Lower Limb Orthotic Solutions For Children
Naturally, the type of orthoses your child needs will depend on the location, the age of the child, the goal of treatment, and many other factors. Your child may need to come in for new fittings and adjustments more frequently because of their rapid growth and development. In general, we offer many types of foot and leg orthotics.

Other Pediatric Bracing Options
While most pediatric bracing options are for lower limbs, we do offer braces and solutions for the spine and upper limbs. Often this type of bracing is due to an injury or to recover from surgery. However, one condition seen in children and corrected with back braces is scoliosis. Usually, a pediatrician or the school nurse is the first to find this problem.
Early orthotic intervention is key to correcting this condition. Spinal support can prevent it from becoming worse over time. We offer pediatric orthotics for the spine, and we can customize each brace until it fits just right.
- LS Corset
- Boston Brace
- Thoracolumbosacral Orthosis (TLSO)
Sports Injury Prevention
One of the best ways to protect your child from sports injuries is through pediatric sport bracing. Overuse injuries are especially common and preventable. Vulnerable areas are the ankle, knee, elbow, and wrist.
Many professional athletes wear sports braces during their competitions for a reason – it helps keep them healthy or supports them as they recover. If your child is an athlete, you may consider an orthotic brace to protect their body from injury.
