Overview

"...An excellent reference for any clinical setting in which casting is a regular part of clinical rehabilitation services."——Physical Therapy (80:3)

"This book is truly a one—source, how—to, as well as why, guide to casting which will be a valuable resource for many rehabilitation professionals."——JOSPT (30:3)

This book is a comprehensive, up—to—date treatment of both the theory and clinical techniques of fabricating and using inhibitory and serial casting. Chapters present specific technique suggestions for fabricating five types of upper extremity casts and four types of lower extremity casts, as well as modifications that can be made to these basic casts. In addition, a technique for fabricating casts for use as orthoses (bivalving) is covered. Numerous photographs and forms detail procedures and outcomes. The primary audience for the book is practicing physical and occupational therapists and therapy students as well as physicians, physician assistants, and orthotists.
