Thermoplastic splinting makes use of low-temperature plastics to create and mold custom splints for a variety of orthopedic problems. Thermoplastic splinting provides rigid support to injured or painful joints. Splints are used to immobilize an injured or inflamed joint or used post-operatively as alternatives to casts. They can also be used for scar management, stabilize or support unstable joints, prevent contracture or deformity, and alleviate joint stiffness.
At Advanced Rehabilitation we can custom fabricate thermoplastic splints at all three of our locations. Because we fit them in the clinic directly to the patient during their appointment they are immediately available. We are also able to modify or change the splint as your treatment progresses or as needed. Some common custom splint examples include:
- Cock up/night time splints
- Carpal Tunnel splints
- Basal joint arthritis splints
- Resting hand splints
- Post-operative tendon repair splints
We stock a wide variety of materials and colors to further customize your splint. Call us at the most convenient location to schedule an appointment.
