"Ask Me Anything" with Dr. Krupa Playforth, MD, FAAP



  • @Weaver Check out my comments in this thread above, in response to SkyBlueStarLight and Catahoulamom. You can also check out my instagram for more about ways to optimize your child's health and what red flags to watch for/when to be concerned about "too many" illnesses.

  • @rb0615 It is important to follow the recommendations of your PT on this one. If you are concerned about your child's ability to tolerate the brace, discuss ways to trouble shoot (perhaps consider starting slow or doing it in short spurts). Don't underestimate your 2 year old - they often surprise us with their ability to adjust. In some cases, toe-walking will correct itself - but in others, it can lead to range of motion issues. You can also discuss with your pediatrician and potentially have an orthopedist evaluation.
