Splinting / Casting

Fractures, dislocations and severe overuse injuries require a ‘POSI’ – Position Of Safe Immobilisation to allow for healing to take place most effectively.

It is important to immobilise the region appropriately to allow proper healing to take place and for treatment and rehabilitation to be unrestricted when the time comes to take off the splint or cast. After it has been decided that it is time to remove your aid, rehabilitation to restore loss of range of motion, muscle size (atrophy) and strength, flexibility, proprioception and function is vital.

Common injuries in the clinic requiring this service, but not limited to are; de quervain’s (commonly new Mother’s), finger, wrist and elbow fractures and trigger finger.

Removal of casts and splints are done on premises.
