Prosthetics for children
At LifeCare Prosthetics & Orthotics, we understand the uncertainty and anxiety that can arise with unexpected prosthetic needs for children, especially if a family has no experience in dealing with this situation. It can be daunting, and it is our primary concern at LifeCare to accommodate and alleviate any doubt or loss that may threaten such a case.
What makes us unique is that we listen to each client, not just the parents but to the children most especially because it is their condition we treat. We work alongside each client at every part of the process (diagnosis, creating a custom prosthetic limb, physical therapy etc.) to adapt, understand and help guide through the process.
However, it is not always that the need for a prosthetic limb arises unexpectedly or later in a child’s life. It may be the case that a child needs it from early stages in his or her life, and the case might require experts, in dealing not only with both children and adults, but with children of all stages in development. That again is a perfect match for LifeCare.
However, other than the details of the process and our work with families we have a special love for working with children. You could say it’s our specialty.
