My husband Sterling had worked hard not to be confined to a wheelchair, which during the time he was in the hospital I was told he would never walk again. We had initially worked with a prosthetics company that came to the hospital. Through months of trying to get what he needed he was fitted with a used prosthetic that had broken several times. Since then through our current prosthetician my husband is back with a new computerized C-Leg ready to take on a new life. He walks so well people don't realize he's missing his leg.
Utah Prosthetics and Orthotics also helps those that have problems with a drop foot, which happened to me. They have professionals to help fit you with the proper AFO in order to get the best treatment. You may require two AFO's. One for day and one for night use. A drop foot can take up to two years to heal. People that experience drop foot may have similar feelings like those who have had an amputation. The pain they experience is called "white pain" and can be very debilitating. Talk to a good pain specialist that may help you control the pain.
