Guiding Parents Through Clubfoot Treatment

Sponsored by: MD Orthopaedics

A clubfoot diagnosis can be upsetting to parents even though it is reversible with proper treatment. The physician leads parents through the casting and tenotomy procedures, but after correction has been achieved, parents are often sent home with foot abduction orthosis (FAO – commonly known as boots-and-bar, BnB, or the Mitchell boot), but sometimes with little information or support on how to use it. By combining the expertise of the medical community with first-hand parental experience, we hope to lay the foundation for a comprehensive care model that will equip parents with the information, resources, and support they need to be successful with the bracing phase of treatment.

Conservative Pain Management for Osteoarthritis
