What is it?

Symptoms

Symptoms include: weakness down one side of the body which can affect the arm and leg, weakness down one side of the face which causes the mouth to droop and difficulty with speech.

Treatments

Ankle Foot Orthosis to control foot and ankle biomechanics in order to maintain the best possible position of the foot and ankle whilst walking. This will also have the effect of improving the biomechanics of the lower limb as a whole.
Night splint to control and maintain the best position of the foot and ankle. To prevent tightness and poor joint positions developing.
Wrist splint to maintain good hand posture, to promote improved function.
