Fortunately, walk-in care clinics such as those that make up San Miguel Urgent Care  can quickly diagnose and treat these injuries, including providing splinting of the injuries.

What is a Splinting of Injury

A splint is a supportive device that protects a broken bone or injury. A splint keeps the injured part of your body still to help with pain and promote healing. Some splints are flexible and some are rigid. The type of splint you need will depend on the type of injury you have and the part of your body that is injured.

After an injury, a splint is used to hold still and protect the wounded body part from further damage until you get medical help. It is important to check for good circulation after the injured body part has been immobilized.

Splints can be used for different injuries. For example, with a broken bone, stabilizing the area is important to reduce pain, prevent further injury, and allow the person to move about as much as possible.

What is a Splinting of Injury

You’ve probably heard the term “splint” used before. A splint is a piece of hard material that is used to immobilize and support a part of the body.

Splints are often used when a person fractures or sprains a part of their body, such as their finger, arm, wrist, or leg. When a person fractures or sprains a limb or some other part of their body, a medical professional may need to set it into place to ensure proper healing of the bone. Next, a splint may be used to immobilize and support that particular part of the body throughout the healing process.
