Horton’s Orthotic & Prosthetic Lab, Inc. Welcomes Lindsay Hicks, an above the knee amputee, as New Patient Care Advocate. 

Lindsay Hicks has joined the Horton’s team as an amputee Patient Care Advocate. She was born with a rare birth defect called PFFD and lived with a limb difference of 7 ½ inches on her left leg, wearing a brace that helped make her legs the same length. At age 22, she made the decision to electively amputate her leg through the knee joint. Lindsay has been an above the knee amputee for 14 years now.

She is a mother to a beautiful daughter, Lyla. As a mother, she became more confident and knew she could do more in life than she currently was. Lindsay became intent on learning how to run, because she was unable to run before the amputation. Her first run was at the Peach Festival in her home town of Clarksville, AR in July of 2014. She later ran her second 5k on the Vegas strip in fall of 2014. She now runs in her spare time and plans to enter more 5ks soon.

Lindsay earned an Associate’s Degree in Business Technology and went on to graduate from the College of HealthCare Professions in San Antonio, TX as a Certified Physical Therapist Technician in 2017. She has 6 years of Marketing and Patient Advocate experience. She worked for numerous Prosthetic and Orthotic companies in San Antonio, TX and in Chattanooga, TN as the Marketing Director and Patient Advocate for many amputees as they go down the road of amputation.

Lindsay also started and developed her own amputee support group called The Journey: Amputee Support System that brings many amputees together to talk about their daily triumphs and struggles. She is a Certified Peer Support Visitor through the Amputee Coalition of America. If anyone would like to contact Lindsay, please call her cell at 501-398-1111 or email her at Lindsay@hortonsoandp.com

Horton’s was founded in 1981 by Gary Horton exclusively as an orthotics lab. After 30 years of business development and research, Horton’s became Horton’s Orthotics and Prosthetics. There are currently six Horton’s locations across the state.
