Custom Splints

Custom molding of splints either dynamic or static can be made for the hand, wrist or elbow. If a splint is needed the patient will be assessed by the therapist first to determine what splint is needed and for what length of time. Periodic adjustments may help to increase the benefits of the original splint. The patient will also receive education for application of the splint, the wearing schedule, and any home exercises that will enhance the end result.

Prefabricated Splints

If custom molding is not required then the assessment will determine if a prefabricated splint will meet the needs of the patient better. The hand therapist can insure a proper fit.
