Boots and Bars for the Treatment of Club Foot
Once a child's casts are removed by the tending physician, the child is ready to be fit with the required boots and bars. Having the items in stock and readily available eliminates any wait time for the treatment process. Our orthotist fits the boots and aligns the bar according to the physician's prescription to ensure correct positioning for each individual child.
