What Is Serial Casting Used For?
Toe walking is when a child walks around on the balls of their feet with no contact between their heel and the ground.
Toe Walking that occurs over a long period of a child’s development can lead to severe stiffness of the muscles in the foot and the ankle. At this point, serial casting is needed to correct the condition. Surgery is often the only alternative to serial casting, and the costs, pain, and rehab timeline can be significantly higher than the process of using non-invasive serial casting. Serial casting is a way to avoid the risks and costs of surgical intervention and at the same time maximize medical outcomes for your child.
