Your tips for wearing AFOs (ankle-foot-orthosis)
Some of us pALS wear AFOs to help us walk. I’ve had mine for 10 yrs. – – and I had a learning curve of trial and error before I found a way to be comfortable wearing them.
For example, I didn’t feel very stable if I slipped them inside tennis shoes. There was too much “cush.” Instead, I found that flat (extra-wide) leather shoes worked better. Then I focused on adding the “cush” via socks and toe pads.
If you wear AFOs, how are they working for you? Share your tips and/or questions with us.
