The Cast Care Instruction Sheet
is a printable general guideline for maintaining your cast and the casted body part in good condition through the healing process.
When you have experienced a fracture, our dedicated physicians at AO Orthopedics offer treatment and advice about essential topics such as maintaining a cast, pain management and rebuilding strength after your cast has been removed. Our fracture guideline document will be given to you when your cast is put on by a physician, and you can also find it here on our website any time you need it. We also have helpful information about conditions that you might experience while your affected bone is in a cast, including blisters, itching and sensitivity of your skin. By providing you with this guidance, our goal is to ensure that you receive kind, compassionate and skilled orthopedic care.
