Does A Cast. Plaster casts are easier to mold for some uses than are fiberglass casts. A cast which keeps a bone from moving so it can heal is essentially a big bandage that has two layers a soft cotton layer that rests against the skin and a hard outer layer that prevents the broken bone from moving.
Rather they hold the affected area in place so that the body can heal itself naturally. Waves that cast driftwood far up on the shore. A displaced fracture needs to be corrected first.
A cast covering the hand and wrist should not weight much maybe a pound at most 15-2 pounds.
And the reason this happens is because healing is a very dynamic metabolic thing. Casts also help prevent or decrease muscle contractions and are effective at providing immobilization especially after surgery. Unpleasant smells animals chewing at cast due to pain underneath. One of the interesting observations that my patients especially the parents have is that after a healing fracture once we take the cast off you know there is so much more hair on the arm than there was before.
