Casting and Splinting
Active Body therapists are highly trained at treating a wide range of injuries that require casting and/or splinting. We use fibreglass casting material along with gore-tex so the cast is waterproof. Should a specialist or doctor require that the cast not get wet, we can also address this issue as it arises. Our staff will proficiently fabricate the following types of casts should you require.
- Short arm casts
- Scaphoid casts
- Short leg cast (below knee)
- Long arm casts
- Full Leg casts
As well as casting we also have the ability to custom make splints/braces to best support your injury. We use a heat moldable thermoplastic material along with padding and supports as required for the injury.
Additionally we carry a wide range of orthopaedic supports and braces at the practice, these include but are not limited to the following:
- Knee braces
- Hand splints and thumb supports
- Neoprene body sleeves for muscle support
- Shoulder stability braces
- Ankle guards
Should we not carry the exact item you require, we are very happy to special order it for you.
