Lethbridge Orthotics has a devoted pediatric team working with infants and children. We have clinicians with years of specialized experience in working with kids and we love the relationships we get to develop with parents and children who come to our office, whether for a single visit or over years of growth and development.

Our clinicians encompass a full range of services from preventative sports orthotics for young athletes to specialty orthoses and products for conditions such as plagiocephaly, scoliosis, and club foot. We offer a multidisciplinary approach to pediatric bracing and support services that addresses each child’s unique needs. Just as children are continually growing, the Lethbridge Orthotic team is continually learning and committed  to advanced training and education.


Here are some common pediatric orthoses. We pride ourselves on the relationships we develop with both children and parents, our clinical expertise that allows us to find the best solution for each individual patient, and custom craftsmanship to keep a smile on everyone’s faces.
