Custom Splinting

As certified hand therapists, we are experts in the fabrication and provision of custom upper extremity splints. Splints are made of various moldable low-temperature thermoplastic materials and are crafted to fit each individual on the premises. 

We use custom fabricated splints to help our patients with problems associated with many of these common conditions:

  • Tendonitis (i.e. Tennis Elbow and Trigger Finger)
  • Neuritis (i.e. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)
  • Joint Pain (i.e. thumb arthritis)
  • Muscle Strain
  • Joint stiffness
  • Specialized hand surgery

Custom fabricated splints serve to:

  • Rest sore and inflamed tendons, nerves, ligaments, muscles, and joints
  • Help mobilize stiff joints, adherent scar tissue, and contracted soft tissues
  • Support weak muscles
  • Substitute for the function of paralyzed muscles
  • Provide protection of repaired/reconstructed structures after surgery
  • Alter the biomechanics of the wrist and hands to promote effective therapeutic exercise
  • Facilitate early motion protocols after specialized hand surgery (i.e. tendon repair)
  • Reduce abnormal muscle tone (i.e spasticity)
  • Prevent contracture and deformity due to biomechanical and neuromuscular imbalances
  • Position hand and wrist in good joint alignment to prevent deformity

We ensure our splints are comfortable, as they are customized to fit each individual. We can easily make modifications as needed to ensure comfort and compliance.
