Orthotics Care for Kids

Green Prosthetics & Orthotics provides a large range of pediatric braces, devices, and foot orthotics for children. Most often they are prescribed by a Pediatric Physician or a Pediatric Orthopedist.

Our practitioners provide pediatric care that is thoughtful and innovative. And, as with all our services, we work with all members of the care team including family members, therapist and physicians to develop a treatment strategy that work best for each individual child.

Conditions Requiring Experienced Practitioners

We have experience with a wide variety of infant and adolescent conditions that can be treated with prescribed pediatric braces, custom devices, and orthotics. They include:

Normal Anatomy Variations – These include children who excessively “toe-in” or “toe-out”, have “bad posture”, are delayed in learning to walk, or have unusual walking patterns.

Childhood or Pediatric Sports Injuries – Children break bones or suffer injuries as a result of engaging in activities such as skateboarding, soccer, basketball, or karate. Appropriate treatment often includes temporary orthotics such as braces and splints to promote healing and ensure minimal disturbance to the affected areas.

Congenital Deformities – Unfortunately a small number of children are born with birth defects. These include spinal problems such as spina bifida, club foot, hip dysplasia, or extra fingers and toes.

Scoliosis & Kyphosis – These are deformities of the spinal column and may occur at any time before or after birth. Scoliosis is the curvature of the spine and is seen in approximately 5% of all teenage girls. Kyphosis is an excessive round-back deformity common in teenagers.

Neurological Disorders – These include cerebral palsy and a family of diseases called dystrophies. They often result in muscle imbalance and deformities in the areas involved with the condition.

Personalized Customization

Many of the bracing offerings we provide can be personalized with custom color strapping, decals, alternative plastics, and transfers. These options help the child to become more comfortable wearing the prescribed device, and in some instance, actually want to “show it off”.
