AFOs for nocturnal use

John Boldt

I have a juvenile patient who suffered a TBI several years ago and we have been losing ground on his achilles with AFO management. He recently responded well to a three week serial casting protocol and his parents are asking about nocturnal use. I am looking for protocols used successfully by Orthotists who have managed kids to skeletal maturity. Do OTS night splints work? Should he attempt to wear his AFOs to bed?
Thank you for your helpful insight!
