Custom Splints

When people hear “custom splints”, a lot of questions come up. While we encourage you to reach out and schedule a consultation to learn more, we want to give you a high-level overview now. Among the many conditions which can be greatly aided by a combination of hand rehabilitation and custom splinting are: arthritis, carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, tendonitis, and wrist fractures.

 

3 Types of Custom-Fabricated Splints

  1. Dynamic: Adds mobilizing tension to the treated area to reduce the build-up of restrictive scar tissue
  2. Static: Restricts movement of the treated area to promote rest and healing
  3. Static-progressive: Strategically restricts movement and adds mobilizing tension

 

Benefits of Custom-Fabricated Splints

  • Designed especially for your body, for optimal results
  • Removable (to accommodate bathing and wound care)
  • Adjustable (to provide optimum comfort and accommodate bodily changes as swelling subsides)
  • Water friendly (a little bit of H2O isn’t going to damage anything)
