PEDIATRIC PATIENT STORIES
"My name is Kahleah and I am 6 years old. I love to run, jump, swim and like to go to the park and play. As soon as I get up in the morning and my feet hit floor I don’t stop until my mama makes me. So when it’s time for bed my legs are hurting because I have done so much through out the day. My mama rubs them to help them not hurt. Sometimes it hurts so bad I cry. I have low muscle tone in my hips and legs. This causes me to trip and fall a lot. Sometimes I trip over my own feet. Claiborne Prosthetics has made me a set of braces designed and fitted just for me. Since I have been wearing my braces I can run and play with all of my friends and I don’t trip and fall like I use to. My legs and feet don’t hurt like they use to either. If you get a chance to design and get your own set of braces you will be so happy that you did. Thank you Claiborne Prosthetics for making my life and my mama’s live easier and taking good care of me."
"Finding out something is wrong with your baby is the worst news a parent could ever hear. We were told Silas had a club foot and would require surgery and lots of casts and boots. I remember crying for days. I'm so thankful for the Claiborne Kids team. They have been patient and answered all of my questions along the way. They have jumped into action at any time we have needed anything. They are sweet and so wonderful to my boy and our family. We appreciate you guys so much."
"Hi, this is Sophia and she is four years old. I started noticing she was having issues with walking since she was two years old. I was able to get in contact with her pediatrician who then referred us to Claiborne orthotics. Sophia was diagnosed with toe walking and I was told she needed special braces called SMO's to help correct it and make her walk better. Now that she has SMO's she has been getting stronger and better every day and her toe walking has lessened also improving her balance. Claiborne Kids has improved my daughter's life drastically and also ours as well, as parents knowing our daughter was given the best care and attention has put us at ease. Everything has been easy and stress free, from the staff who communicate so well to the orthotist who put in their hard work and attention to detail in what they do. Thank you Claiborne Kids and staff!"
