Splints, Braces, & Casts

Along with our full range of orthopaedic services, The Bone and Joint Surgery Clinic conveniently offers a wide variety of braces, splints and casts for our patients.

Braces and Splints

Braces and splints are commonly referred to as Durable Medical Equipment (DME). They are used to protect, immobilize and rehabilitate sports related injuries and some orthopaedic conditions. Many of our braces and splints can be custom-made in order to last longer, provide an excellent fit and help withstand more stress.

The Following Braces and Splints are Commonly Given in Our Office:

  • Ankle braces
  • Crutches, walkers and canes
  • Knee ligament (ACL) braces
  • Lumbar supports
  • Patellofemoral knee braces
  • Shoulder immobilizers
  • Slings
  • Soft cervical collars
  • Walking boots
  • Wrist and hand braces
  • Custom molded splints


Casts are custom-made splints made of either fiberglass or plaster. Physicians use casts to rigidly immobilize and protect a joint or fracture early in a patient’s treatment program.

Fiberglass casts are lighter in weight, longer wearing and breathe better than plaster casts. Plaster is less expensive than fiberglass and shapes better than fiberglass in some uses. The Bone and Joint Surgery Clinic conveniently offers both fiberglass and plaster casts at our Raleigh office. We also offer a wide variety of colors for all of our fiberglass casts.
