Removable casts

Thanks Deborah for asking about replaceable casts
New fact sheet (71) will be produced to advise the benefits between removable plastic casts and fixed casts to answer your questions. Any questions not answered please add suggestions below and I will do my best. Casts have to be removed and tend to cause muscle wasting. In many cases replaceable casts have removed the tedium for fixed casts to be used. Obviously there are some conditions that need a fixed cast to be applied but plaster of paris is used much less frequently today.
