Casting and Splinting Team
This team includes the child and family, an occupational therapist, a physical therapist and a therapy assistant.
The team makes casts and splints to improve the function of a child’s limbs, or recommends commercial options when more suitable.
“Serial” casting (progressive, corrective casting), is a method used to regain or increase flexibility in the soft tissue around the casted joint.
“Splints” are used to position joints and muscles, and provide:
- support for improving function
- protections for weak areas
- prevention of deformity
Sometimes specialized equipment is used to assist children with a physical skill, to increase comfort, or to prevent deformities.
The services of the Casting and Splinting Team are available to children from birth to age 19 who live in Surrey, Delta, White Rock and Langley.
Children must be either receiving physiotherapy or occupational therapy or be waitlisted for these services.
Referrals must be made by one of The Centre’s physical or occupational therapists. No outside referrals are being accepted at this time.
