Casting and Bracing

After a fracture, you may need a cast or a brace to ensure your bones heal properly. The type of treatment depends on the severity of the break and the bone that has been fractured. A cast is most often used to keep the bone in the optimal position for healing, whereas a brace supports an area and allows controlled movement.
