Custom Splinting

Book an appointment

At Hand in Hand, our occupational therapists have years of experience in applying custom splints for treating patients with upper extremity disorders, such as the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand disorders. Both braces and splints relieve pain and enhance movement when fitted accurately. At Hand in Hand, we fabricate custom made splints to meet each patient’s needs dependent on their conditions. A custom splint is usually prescribed to patients for both pre and post-surgical interventions and is essential in providing both protection and support for the hand and upper extremity. Custom splinting is an effective treatment for healing, stabilizing and correctly positioning the hand/arm. Our specially designed custom splints support and correct the function of the hand, wrist, and elbow, shoulders while also providing protection for tendon and ligaments repairs to increase range of motion. Occupational therapists offer splints to help improve the overall quality of life allowing one to engage and perform comfortably in their day to day lives.
