Foot conditions can be at times very troublesome and painful, and they may impact on your daily life. In case you have been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendonitis, a doctor will prescribe an ankle-foot orthosis (L4396 or L 4397 medical bill code) to support and promote the natural position of your foot or ankle to reduce inflammation and pain. This is a static dynamic brace that can maintain a fixed position or be adjusted accordingly. These braces are not designed for use during periods of moving around. Instead, there should be as little movement as possible while being worn. For the comfort of patients, these braces are fitted with soft inner material to prevent the occurrence of skin irritation or rash. The New Era Hunter Night Splint comes as a prefabricated item ready to be used, and if any alteration in the form of trimming, molding or bending is required for a patient, this will be done under this specific medical billing code.
