Casting and Splinting

Casting and splinting are common treatments for broken bones and other orthopedic injuries. They involve applying a rigid or flexible material, such as plaster or fiberglass, to the affected area to immobilize and protect the injured bone or joint. The cast or splint can help promote healing and prevent further injury by restricting movement and providing support. We can determine the appropriate type of cast or splint based on the location and severity of the injury. We will also provide instructions for proper care and maintenance, such as avoiding getting the cast or splint wet and checking for any signs of discomfort or swelling. With proper care and time, the injury will heal and the cast or splint will be removed, allowing the patient to resume normal activities. If you have a broken bone or other orthopedic injury, we may recommend casting or splinting as part of your treatment plan.
