Splinting in Houston

What is Splinting?

You may hear the words “splinting” or “splints” thrown around in medical settings or hospital TV dramas, but what do they mean, exactly? To begin, a splint is a small device that helps keep an injured body part still, such as a broken bone or injured joint, and provides a layer of protection during the healing process. It’s essentially half of a cast that is held in place by an elastic bandage or another type of wrap. Unlike a traditional cast that can only be removed by a medical professional, a splint is easily adjustable and can be removed when bathing.
