Where we work with so much more than just feet. Yes, we do a full biomechanical assessment to determine what kind of orthotic is needed, the report from this assessment gets sent to our patients as well as their nominated physiotherapist and/or biokineticist and the referring doctor. This way everyone in the team treating the patient are on the same page. You see we believe that one should not only treat the symptoms but also the actual problem. Just because you experience pain in your feet, does not mean the main problem is the feet. It could be a wide variety of muscles and joints that might need strengthening, stretching or realignment. We treat the symptom to help you get pain free, but also give you a full analysis of what needs to be done so you can stay pain free.
In this area, Mr Kleinhans aims to assist patients with getting mobility and freedom back with dignity. These patients have gone through so much trauma already and most of them have a long road of recovery ahead of them. Here we work closely together with physiotherapists to assist these patients not only with a prosthetic leg or arm, but also with the necessary assistance to learn how to use this new prosthesis optimally. These prosthesis often needs to be adjusted or refitted as their bodies change and their abilities adapt. A lot of our prosthesis patients are living active lives, working, doing sports, all this was made possible by finding the best solution for that individual, prosthetics is definitely not a one size fits all area. Each patient’s activity level prior to amputation is assessed and their current abilities are taken into consideration when making their prosthesis to help them get back to what they really want to be doing. We work with the doctors and physiotherapists at Pasteur hospital to optimally rehab each patient, as well as with outside physiotherapists who comes to see the patients in our practice.
