Casting & Immobilization
Post-Injury Stabilization and Strengthening
Casting and Immobilization techniques prevent movement to injured areas, allowing for proper positioning and reduction of strain and pressure. Casts and immobilization devices may be required if you are suffering from injury associated with overuse, trauma, or pre- and post-surgical casting. Illinois Orthopedic Institute has top of the line medical equipment, including immobilization and compression needs. IOI has you covered by offering a full range of casting, immobilization, and compression services, ensuring we can provide our patients with everything they need to stabilize, strengthen, compress, and immobilize recovering areas.
A Range of Options
Depending on the extent and requirement for your specific immobilization, our team will decide from a plaster cast, synthetic cast, cast brace, half-cast, tensor bandage or sling for your injury. The team at Illinois Orthopedic Institute has the diagnostic ability, treatment options, and immobilization methods available to create a unique, patient tailored experience. In our efforts to be the best orthopedic office in Joliet, Illionois, we’ve spent countless years fine-tuning our craft that combines state of the art immobilization techniques, the best medical equipment, the most accurate diagnostic tools, and the most comprehensive treatment programs curated to our patients’ needs.
Better, Faster Healing
Casts are utilized to stabilize and immobilize a specific location to promote healing and discourage improper healing of broken or fractured bones by encasing the entire area with a hard shell. This cast will hold the specific shape for the entire healing period, allowing the proper positioning for healing that will help prevent future pain and injury. By holding the broken bone or fractured area in place while it heals, the bone is allowed to set for healing and regeneration. Ensuring the proper setting of a bone is key to recovery; if a bone is not properly set, it can cause complications, further pain and future injury. We have the best orthopedists in Joliet Illinois, and we work carefully to ensure our patients receive the best possible casting and immobilization, because we understand that improper casting can result in circulation difficulties, nerve pain, and future bone pain, and our goal is to help you heal as quickly, thoroughly, and safely as possible.
