F.A.Q.                                           (return to F.A.Q. index)
What happens if a plaster (cast) or splint has been applied?

Your plaster (cast) has been applied to immobilize and maintain alignment of the affected area.
Please follow the instructions below:

- keep the arm/leg elevated all the time to reduce   swelling, and continue to move fingers/toes

- do not slide objects under the plaster

- keep the plaster clean and dry

- while bathing, cover plaster with a fitting plastic bag;

Watch for signs indicating the plaster may be too tight. If that happens, please contact me at +306977654737.
