Splinting is a process by which musculoskeletal system abnormalities are treated. In this process, a device called splint is used, which is a piece of medical equipment that is used to keep an injured body part from moving and to protect it from any further damage. It can be used in various situations like temporary immobilization of broken bones, damaged joints and also as a support for the joints during any activity. The splint is commonly used to secure small fractures and breaks. Commonly used splints are – sugar tongs used for the forearm or wrist. The ulnar gutter is used for the forearm and palm, the thumb spica, finger splints and the ankle stirrup. Once the splint is applied, you should check the areas around it every few minutes for signs of decreased blood circulation. If the extremities begin to appear pale, swollen, or tinged with blue, loosen the ties that are holding the splint. According to the clinical guidelines, it has been noticed that the short term splinting is 14 days or less and the long term splinting is over 14 days. Shin splints are very common. Runners might get them after ramping up their workout intensity, or changing the surface they run on. Splinting helps the injured part of the body to keep into position in which moving the affected areas give a severe pain. Splinting helps keeping the bones into position so that the regeneration of new tissues takes place in the right manner in case of potentially broken bones.
