Taping and Fibreglass Casting

NO QUERY IS TOO DIFFICULT. IF VILLAGE PHYSIOTHERAPY SHELLHARBOUR DOESNT HAVE THE SIZE, WE WILL GET IT FOR YOU!

Many people seek out taping and casting services for multiple reasons. At Village Physiotherapy Shellharbour, casting is a skill we often get enquiries about for the management of fractures. Whilst taping is often sourced prior to weekend sport.

When taping we use either rigid (sports) or K-tape. Rigid tape application is used to prevent a movement. Similarly K-tape can be used to prevent movement or help optimise an area whilst performing specific training exercises. At Village Physiotherapy Shellharbour we utilise both rigid and K-Taping techniques. If you require tape, our team will perform a comprehensive assessment of the region. Taking into consideration your sporting/work commitments and area of injury. If you require taping prior to weekend sport, this can be organised for a small fee.

Fibreglass casts are a lightweight, water resistance alternative to plaster casts in the management of broken bones. Cast application is quick. Within the clinic we have tools to safely remove fibreglass casts. Please contact reception to book an appointment and discuss pricing.

EXOS Cast

Exos Cast

We now stock EXOS Cast. This type of cast is an alternative to fibreglass. A new removable form of casting for fractures of the wrist and hand. Exos Cast has numerous benefits:

  • Reformable – allowing us to re-mould the brace to accommodate changes (swelling, muscle wasting) during the healing stages
  • Adjustable – minimising the risk of compartment syndrome and allowing YOU to find your fit
  • Waterproof – beach, pool, showering – all a walk in the park with exos cast
  • Removable – you are able to remove your brace (if recommended) making caring for your skin a breeze.
