Common Mistakes People Make Regarding Ankle Foot Orthosis for Stroke Patients

Stroke patients sometimes have partial paralysis to one side of their body that results in difficulties with walking, including a slower gait, fatigue at sure distance, a higher chance of falling and pain. An ankle foot orthosis can help these patients improve their walking and allow their physical therapy to progress faster. A few of the common mistakes to avoid are:

  • As part of the partial paralysis, a stroke patient can develop a condition known as foot drop. The muscles that normally lift the foot are too weak to move it correctly, often resulting in dragging the foot. Untreated, this can lead to injury.
  • Many stroke patients adjust the way they walk due to foot drop, using a steppage gate resulting in bending the hip and knee excessively or a circumduction gate keeping the leg straight and swinging it out to the sides. As with dragging the foot, this can lead to further injury.
  • If you are considering orthosis for your ankle and foot, properly fitted custom made devices will be more likely to provide the best support. Improperly fit orthosis can exacerbate your issues and even cause further damage.
