Sometimes a physician will order a fracture brace to manage certain fracture types. We keep various fracture braces in stock, so we can help your child start the healing process as soon as possible. Cervical collars can stabilize fractures of the cervical spine. Walking boots can help stabilize fractures of the ankle and foot. Depending on physician orders, some fracture braces can be removed for bathing. There are many advantages of fracture braces. If a fracture brace is indicated for your child's injury, our orthotists will be here to help.
