Thermoplastic splinting is a treatment technique used by neurological physiotherapists at to maintain range of movement and prevent joints getting stiff and tight. This can often occur in individuals who cannot move the limb independently due to a neurological condition.

After a neurological injury such as a stroke or a head injury, the brain does not always send the correct messages to the muscles. This can mean that the muscles are told to contract repeatedly which makes them tight and short. Over time and without effective physiotherapy, the muscles and limb can become stuck in a bent position.

Thermoplastic splints are worn to increase or maintain range of movement alongside an effective physiotherapy treatment program. Your physiotherapist will provide a splinting and home exercise program to ensure you gain maximal benefit from this valuable treatment technique.

The splinting material is warmed slightly to enable an effective mould of the individual’s limb and straps can be added to ensure effective positioning and comfort. Thermoplastic splints can be made for most joints including the hand, elbow, knee, foot and ankle.
