Bracing ankle foot orthoses are special devices used to control the position and motion of the ankle. They can help compensate for a weakness in the ankle and can also be used to correct deformities. Another common use for this type of orthotic, is to correct foot drop, a condition in which a person experiences difficulty lifting the front part of the foot. If you have an injury to the lower limbs, such as a fracture, or if you have arthritis, a bracing ankle foot orthotic can be used to immobilize the affected area.

There are many different types of bracing ankle foot orthoses, which can be made from a variety of materials and used for numerous foot and ankle problems. To find out if you might benefit from an orthotic device, and to find out which specific type of orthotic is best for you, please consult with a podiatrist.
