Brielle is a goofy energetic 3-year old that loves to dance and run! Brie started wearing AFO’s when she was about 16 months for spasticity and toe walking. Our family hasn’t always loved her braces until we met Mr. Tim about a year ago to be honest my daughter first set was kinda hit and miss we often had to get them adjusted and when they got too short I was informed that she still had to stay in the same brace because insurance wouldn’t pay for them. No one ever asked if I was willing to pay out of pocket or had other resources to cover the cost.
