Neck and Back pain happen very frequently. Chances are all of us will experience an episode or more of back pain in our lifetime. Our clinic’s approach here is to concentrate on pain relief, shorten recovery time and if necessary discuss further therapeutic modalities.
Ankle and foot deformities and gait abnormalities are common in cerebral palsy. Often, foot rebalancing and tendon transfers can restore a better gait pattern and help correct painful foot deformities. This has to be individualized to each patient and his/her foot.
Spinal conditions, stroke and neuropathies can cause a foot drop. This can be quite debilitating as it interferes with gait and results in the person easily tripping over objects. Frequently, corrective rebalancing, tendon transfer or in some patients bony corrections can aid in improving the gait pattern. Correction of the foot drop can be a very good alternative to chronic use of an orthosis or brace.
