Serial casting is a pain-free procedure that helps to increase range of movement at any given joint by holding it in a position of stretch. It is commonly used in conjunction with botox injections that paralyse the muscles and allow them to be stretched.

Your neurological physiotherapist will firstly assess range of movement and then produce a splint that is made to fit the individual. The cast will hold the limb in the maximum position of stretch that is comfortable. For example, individuals with neurological conditions often have tight flexor muscles behind the knee or in the elbow. This means it can be difficult to straighten the knee or the elbow. A series of casts can be made to stretch the muscles and over time, this will help to straighten these joints and improve functional ability. The casts will be made with a gradual increase in angle and stretch so that greater range of movement is achieved comfortably. Your physiotherapist will show you how to wear and position the limb while wearing the cast and also stretches to carry out when the splint is removed.
