Tired of my afo’s in Michigan

February 18, 2011 at 2:19 am

I was just talking to a friend of mine about what I need for my cidp- but don’t have it. One of the things we discussed was these ugly afo’s. I don’t want to sound ungrateful as they really do work and I am able to do so much more with them. Even though I am soon going to be 53, I still like to look my best and these hard, plastic afo’s don’t do me any favors in that department. As far as what you could do to help get out of these afo’s: We need to build muscle. How much nerve damage is in your ankles and feet. With the advice of your P.T., you should be conditioning and strengthening your ankles and feet. Use pieces of theraband when your sitting down. I like the weights that you can velcro around your ankles. I’m going to be trying E-Stim and Anodyne therapy soon. Good luck!!!
