What Are the Benefits of a Thumb Spica Splint?
Splinting facilitates the immobilisation and stabilisation of the joint in question, helping to protect from further injury. One advantage of using a thumb spica splint instead of a cast or brace is that spica splints accommodate swelling thanks to their elasticity.
Additionally, elasticated splints also provide compression that helps increase circulation which helps reduce swelling and assists healing.
