Orthopedic Bracing

Orthotics Intro 2

Gulf Coast practitioners specialize in orthopedic bracing (i.e. orthotic) solutions for musculoskeletal or neuromuscular impairment, injuries, deformities, and post-surgical healing. Upon receiving a physician’s orthotic prescription, we proceed with an in-depth evaluation of the patient’s needs, physical condition and goals, then create the most effective orthosis for those variables. Our process encompasses careful selection of the best orthotic materials to provide optimum function, comfort and appearance at the lowest possible energy cost.

Spinal orthoses are prescribed to restrict motion, reduce axial loading, correct deformities, and/or enhance function of the cervical, thoracic and cervical spine. We are well experienced in fabricating custom body jackets as well as fitting pre-manufactured specialized scoliosis orthoses, HALO vests, various other forms of cervical supports, and osteoporosis braces.

Lower-extremity orthoses address a variety of disorders – stroke, cerebral palsy, polio, multiple sclerosis, ALS, spina bifida – as well as head trauma, spinal cord injuries, fractures, disease and injury of the lower limb.

AFO– AFOs. Our practitioners are adept at producing custom Ankle Foot Orthoses to control and correct biomechanical and/or neurological dysfunction, facilitate joint motion, stabilize gait, maintain proper limb alignment, alleviate pain, protect vulnerable structures, prevent progression of deformities and relieve weight-bearing.

KAFO– KAFOs. When additional knee stabilization is required, as for polio, spinal cord injuries, severe stroke and advanced leg trauma, we create a higher-profile Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis to provide greater control and protection.

HKAFO–  HKAFOs extend a KAFO to include the hip joint to provide the greater stabilization required by individuals with even greater mobility challenges and support needs.

Donjoy Defiance– Knee braces for protecting and preventing sports injuries, providing limited motion following surgery and facilitating an impaired patient’s return to daily activities are among the most commonly prescribed orthoses today. At Gulf Coast, we maintain relationships with all substantial knee brace manufacturers, allowing us to select the most appropriate brace for each patient’s needs.

Upper-extremity orthoses. Gulf Coast provides a full range of static and functional braces to support, protect, stabilize, immobilize, facilitate healing, and assist and/or regulate motion of joints and other structures from shoulder to fingertips. These devices can range from basic soft goods to intricate devices encompassing more than one joint. Functional, or dynamic, orthoses allow or create joint movement, maintaining  the joint in the proper position while assisting motion using springs, rubber bands, or other materials.
