Thermoplastic splinting is a treatment modality used by neurological physiotherapists to maintain muscle length and range of movement
. It involves the use of mouldable heated plastic that is made to fit the individual and worn to keep the arm, leg or trunk in a certain position. It is very useful when individuals are unable to stretch the muscle independently due to weakness
. At Physio.co.uk, one of our specialist therapists will assess your eligibility for thermoplastic splinting and discuss the advantages and benefits of this useful treatment technique.
If you would like to find out more about thermoplastic splinting please phone Physio.co.uk now on 0330 088 7800
