Rue and Primavera is one of the best clinics in the state for hand therapies, and this specialization means that we’re also skilled at making custom splints for patients who require device stabilization. Our therapist Jayme Gilliam excels in custom splinting, and we’re happy to offer a wide range of splint services!
What You Need in a Custom Splint
A custom splint is very different from one you might buy at a drugstore. They often include devices that allow patients or doctors to adjust the tension. They are also designed for your hand alone, with your needs and comfort in mind. There are as many different hands in the world as there are people (well, actually, twice as many!) and to properly treat someone, the splint must be molded to the exact dimensions of the patient’s hand and arm, as well as being designed with their exact medical goals in mind.
What Splints Help Treat
Splints can be used to treat both chronic or degenerative issues as well as acute injury. Splinting can help patients suffering from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, tennis or golf elbow, deQuervian’s, arthritis, fibromyalgia, deformity, nerve palsy, and more. They can also be used to treat injuries like fractures, tendon lacerations, scaphoid injuries, nerve damage, post-op care, and more.
Whether you’re a programmer who has been experiencing hand pain, or a surgeon treating a patient’s swan neck deformity, call us at Rue and Primavera for premier custom splinting!
