Our Approach to Care
Gaylord’s weekly Prosthetic and Orthotic Clinic offers appointments with a team including a Gaylord physiatrist (a board-certified physician of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation), a physical therapist and/or a prosthetic or orthotic vendor. Each member of this team is experienced in assessing and fitting devices to restore or maintain your function. Our expert staff partners with cutting edge vendors who collaborate on the latest technology options.
Whether you experienced a change due to illness or injury, even if it occurred months or decades ago, having a team of experts evaluate your needs is important. Uncompensated gait patterns may lead to changes in function which may cause other orthopedic or neuromuscular problems. Or if you are getting up on a new prosthetic for the first time, or are interested in new technology, we can help you.
Evaluation may include:
- Assessment of strength in core and limbs
- Pain assessment
- Gait and functional analysis
- Medication review
- Assessment of your current prosthetic or orthotic
- A balance and coordination assessment
