We use Splints to immobilize and support injured limbs. This is especially true when swelling is present. Splints can be a key part of the healing process. In some cases, splints are the initial phase of treatment for newly broken bones and may be replaced with a cast.
In many ways, a Splint is like a partial cast. Splints usually have a soft layer inside and an outer layer that is made of stiff plastic or metal. The Splint will typically be held in place by Velcro strips and can be removed at night when the limb is not in use.
