Where Art Meets Science
The Seacoast therapists are trained in the art of fabricating custom splints for either stabilization or mobilization out of a variety of thermoplastic materials. Our unique bodies often fail to fit into “off the shelf” models of support or a patient may require a more individualized device following trauma. At this point the therapist, in collaboration with the physician, will evaluate each case carefully and then a unique “medical sculpture” will be constructed to facilitate the fastest healing.
The art of splinting is a fascinating process to watch, but it is important to remember that it is a small component of the overall therapeutic road to recovery.
