What is Splinting?
Splinting helps treat injuries like fractures and specific health conditions, providing stability and support to affected body parts. Splints may be referred to as braces and they’re recommended to safeguard and assist in recovery. The type and duration of splint use depend on the injury or condition. It's essential to adhere to recommendations regarding the frequency and duration of splint usage, as removing it prematurely may increase the risk of re-injury or delayed healing.
If you're advised to wear a splint, follow your provider's instructions closely. They may also recommend additional treatments that support your recovery process.
