The occupational and physical therapy teams at The Children's Hospital at MUMC work together to help families manage orthopaedic problems. This includes the use of splints and casts made from thermoplastics, fiberglass, or plaster.
We provide upper and lower extremity splinting. Upper extremity splints include custom hand splints fabricated or ordered in durable fabrics. A certified orthotist is available to provide expertise in the latest materials and techniques for lower extremity splinting. Custom braces and orthotics are cast on-site. Serial casting is available for upper and lower soft tissue and muscle elongation.
All planning and treatments are carried out with the cooperation of therapists, physicians, orthotists, and the family to provide meaningful, functional outcomes.
