Thermoplastic splinting will help to prevent muscle shortening and contractures. It is very important to prevent muscle shortening and contractures as the limbs can become very tight and make it difficult to get washed and dressed.
Your physiotherapist will advise you whether to wear your splint during the day or night and will teach you a range of stretches to do at home. It is important that individuals remove the splint regularly to carry out exercises and that you apply the splint as advised by the physiotherapist.
