Splinting

We have a wide range of commercial and customised splinting options at AHHT which allows the therapist to achieve the best possible support for the injury. Some of the common reasons we will prescribe a splint are to:

  • Prevent further injury/damage
  • Provide pain relief
  • Provide protection
  • Increase functional performance
  • Allow underlying structures to heal
  • Allow a better nights sleep

Your therapist will use their extensive knowledge of splinting principles and tissue healing to prescribe the best splint for you. Some of the top points we keep in mind are:

  • Tissue healing prinicples
  • Mechanism of injury
  • Comfort of the splint
  • Your normal activities of daily living; eg. are your hands getting wet frequently?
  • Your personal style for colour preference 😉
