Cincinnati Style AFO?
Situation: 82 yo man with Left ankle OA and peroneal tears as well as talo-calcaneal lig. rupture. Ortho MD recommends a "Cincinnati style AFO" and no surgical intervention. What is a Cincinnati style AFO? Searches have not produced the answer....maybe you know this type of bracing? Any information would be great. Thank you!
It would be appropriate to direct your question to the Orthopedist who made this recommendation. Good Luck!!
