A splint is a device that supports and protects body parts that have been injured, such as a broken bone or muscle sprain. A splint may also be worn after surgery. A splint is sometimes called a half-cast because it does not wrap around an entire body area like a cast does. A splint is used to decrease pain and stop or limit movement so you can heal. Unlike casts, caregivers can easily adjust a splint if you have swelling or pain after an injury.
Different Types of Splints
Splints come in many shapes and sizes. A splint canbe as simple as buddy taping (fingers taped together) for a finger injury. Other splints are large enough to support your hips or thighs. Some splints are made of plastic or fabric. The fit of these splints can be adjusted with hook and loop straps, buckles, or laces. These splints can be taken off to wash, rest your injury, or do exercises that caregivers suggest. Other kinds of splints are made of hard plaster or fiberglass. Hard splints stay on all the time. Caregivers may adjust or remove your hard splint as you heal. Ask your caregiver for more information about the different kinds of splints.
Static splinting: Static splints prevent you from moving an injured area. You might get a static splint right after an injury to relieve pain and reduce swelling. Depending on your injury, you may get a cast after the swelling goes down.
Dynamic splinting: Caregivers may switch you to a dynamic splint as you begin to heal. Dynamic splints allow you to have increased movement of the joints that have had limited range of motion.
