Coastal Hand Therapy fabricate custom-made splints (orthosis) within the clinic.

Creating custom-made splints requires advanced training, so that the splint is made to fit your individual hand and meet your specific needs. Splints have many different purposes, including:

  • For protection of an injured joint, tendon or ligament.
  • For pain management when a joint is arthritic.
  • To allow healing post surgery or trauma.
  • To improve functional use.
  • To help correct joint deformity or stretch tissue or an contracted joint.
  • To rebalance the hand.
  • To stabilise hyper mobile joint.
  • To allow return to sport or recreation.

Splints can fabricated from thermoplastic material, leather, neoprene or a combination of these. They are adjustable, removable and made-to-measure.
