Brace Walking Program
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).
