No two wrist injuries are the same and there is no ‘recipe’. At Action Rehab we will tailor the treatment to the patient. We don’t use off-the-shelf splints, instead we use our thermoplastic splints that are light weight and water resistant.

A splint is usually used for several weeks full time before a graded range of motion and strength return to function.
