  • To Dr Wise Young or SCI nurse, or "ortho guy"

    Has anyone used a PLSO (posterior Leaf Spring Orthotic) or hinged AFO to help with standing balance? I walk with canes, have a decent gait, although i have to pick up my knee high enough to clear my toes. I don't have any dorsiflexion, my ankles are dependable if i land on flat surfaces, but are very bad to roll if i don't land correctly.
    At this point, (3 years post) i do not have any balance without the aide of canes, or one cane. Do you think orthotics would help me to stand and balance without the aide of canes?? Any information would be appreciated.
