During walking, ROM limitation in the ankle can lead to severe knee hyperextension in stance and gait. This contracture restricts joint mobility and can be effectively treated with the Low Load Prologned Stretch (LLPS) method with a Dynamic MultiMotion joint. After gaining PROM a customized well-aligned AFO can increase walking speed and functionality as well as limiting knee hyperextension, provided there is adequate dorsal flexion PROM and a minimum Quadriceps force (MRC4). This workshop will show how easy dynamic contracture management is and how this can simplify the application of an alignable AFO.
