Cast Care

Casting

Casting is considered a non-surgical treatment option for various sports injuries and medical conditions affecting areas from the hands and shoulders to knees and toes. Casting provides support and protection to the injured bones and soft tissues such as muscles, tendons and ligaments. Casting also reduces pain, swelling, muscle spasm and even stretches the contracted muscles. Depending upon the condition of the patient, the doctor may recommend casting either alone or in concurrence with other methods such as bracing and splints.

Post-casting care

The injured area may show swelling in the first 48-72 hours after casting that may induce pressure on the injured area. Therefore, the swelling of the injured area can be reduced by elevating the injured arm or leg above heart level, by applying ice or by gently and frequently moving the uninjured fingers or toes.

Follow the instructions below to keep your cast in good condition for the best recovery:

  • Keep the cast dry, as moisture deteriorates the cast material and may cause irritation.
  • Cover the cast before taking a shower with a waterproof bag. (This does not apply to waterproof casting)
  • Do not put ANYTHING inside the cast.
  • Do not REMOVE the padding from the cast.
  • Contact your physician’s office if cracks or soft spots develop over the cast.
  • Contact your physician if skin around the cast becomes red and peeled.
  • Do not cut or trim the edges of the cast without consulting your physician.
