As you may have already seen on our website, sometimes, exercise and physical activity is the best form of treatment. However, sometimes a period of immobility is necessary for an injured area to completely heal.
Splints and braces come in all shapes and sizes, meaning they can be used to treat a variety of injuries sustained to various parts of the body. The main goal of these medical devices is to keep the injured areas properly aligned and stable to allow for optimal healing. Depending on the extent of the injury, the time spent wearing a splint could be days or even weeks. If you have an injury you believe that can benefit from the use of a brace or splint, be sure to contact our team at Lake Country Physical Therapy & Sportscare today.
