Our physicians offer a full range of non-operative care using casts, splints and bracing. Casts and splints help with pain and swelling while protecting the injured area from any additional harm. Splints as well as casts hold and protect the injured bones, ligaments and tendons by keeping them as straight as possible. Braces on the other hand take pressure off an unstable joint or fracture and depending on the injury can sometimes be used as a long-term alternative to patient who cannot undergo surgery.
