Muscle Activation and AFOs
[Source: Your Therapy Source]
A recent study looked closely at muscle activation and AFOs (ankle foot orthotics). The researchers explored how AFOs affect muscle activity during walking in the lower leg and ankle. Pediatric physical therapists frequently work on gait training with children who have cerebral palsy and use orthotics. The results of the study may be helpful in choosing the correct style of AFO depending upon the client’s goals.
