Orthopedic Cast

An orthopedic cast is a shell, frequently made from plaster or fiberglass, encasing a limb or, in some cases, large portions of the body to stabilize and hold anatomical structures, most often a broken bone, in place until healing, is confirmed. It is similar in function to a splint. Here are some examples such as the hip brace provide support to your hip, thigh and lower back, groin support wrap provides relief from muscle stiffness, hip joint injury, sciatic nerve and hernia. Lower extremity orthotics describe orthoses, braces and supports designed for the leg, hip, knee, ankle and foot and can be used for a range of needs from stability to immobilization. Lower extremity orthotics can work independently or in conjunction with one another to create a wide range of options from simple leg orthotics to a complex reciprocating gait orthotics with a custom-made orthopedic shoe.
