The London Orthotic Consultancy (LOC) has unrivalled expertise in treating children. Since 2008, we have held a weekly clinic at The Children’s Trust specialist centre in Tadworth. This provides the UK’s largest residential rehabilitation service for children with acquired brain injury.
We also work closely with the Portland Hospital - the UK's largest private children's hospital - receiving referrals from their paediatric physiotherapy team.
We recently saw their first selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) case and are asked to do regular ward visits at the hospital's children's unit.
We have also recently started a monthly clinic at our Kingston Gait Lab in conjunction with Elaine Owen, the world-renowned physiotherapist.
At LOC, we often work with children who present with rare, mixed and complicated conditions. Because of the breadth and depth of our clinician’s expertise we can provide effective treatments that aid rehabilitation and reduce pain.
Our Bespoke Orthoses are designed to enhance function and prevent contractures and deformity while children grow.
We understand that your child has just one childhood, during which they will develop their motor patterns and gait characteristics. Correctly prescribed and properly made orthotics have a vital role to play. We will adjust orthoses where possible to increase their lifespan as your child grows and develops.
