Many children who receive physical therapy also use lower extremity orthoses. Both PTs and orthotists have important roles to play in the provision of orthoses, with both unique and overlapping expertise. This will not be a course on orthotic indications; instead we will focus on the PT/orthotist partnership and how to maximize outcomes by working together. In this session we will discuss relevant contributions of each professional to the process of selecting and obtaining orthoses, goals of orthotic intervention, and how the PT/orthotist team can work together to improve care. We will present how the PT and orthotist approach to lower extremity orthoses is similar and where it is different; discuss communication between the PT and orthotist, including important aspects of documentation to support the need for the orthoses; and present a case for discussion and practice.
