Brace Walking

We offer brace walking in the Outpatient/Physical Therapy Department for patients with spinal cord injury and other lower extremity weakness when appropriate to the individual patient’s functional goals. The program includes gait training on level ground, stairs, and curbs, as well as how to fall and get up from the ground with braces. Once a patient is independent with our demonstration braces, we refer them to an orthotist for custom-fitted braces.

We have easy access to the building, with curbside drop-off, and wheelchairs available for use at the front entrance. Please note that we require a physician’s referral and insurance authorization for Physical Therapy services that include brace walking. For further information or to arrange an appointment, please call (410) 448-6706.

For further information on any of the outpatient therapy services, call 410-448-6706 (for patients with orthopedic/spinal cord needs and those persons wanting to use the pool) or 410-448-6421 (for patients with neurological needs).
