Fracture Management/Casting

Fracture management will differ for each individual’s injury and circumstances. The fracture may be placed in a cast, brace or splint for a period of 4-6 weeks. At Connect Physiotherapy we are able to determine the correct management and provide appropriate treatment.

When a bone is fractured (broken) there are often a lot of other structures and soft tissues injured as well. Once the injury has been immobilised for 4-6 weeks the surrounding muscles will have weakened and joints will be stiff. Connect Physiotherapy can provide rehabilitation programs to restore pre injury strength and range of motion to the joints as well as addressing any other injuries sustained at the time of injury. If you wish to return to sport we will provide you with a tailored program to help you return to your chosen sport while preventing further injury.
