Fracture Management/ Bracing at Leap Back Physio
At Leap Back Physio we offer the assessment and management ofundisplaced fractures of the upper and lower limb with the use of casting.
We have a partnership with DJO Global, who are renowned for their products in the USA and Australia .
After a GP or a specialist has made a diagnosis( usually via an x-ray ) call our clinic to make an appointment. We will liaise with your referring doctor and ensure that the fracture*/injury is managed from immobilisation to complete rehabilitation.
Our products include:
- EXOS splinting for wrist and hand fractures: this is a mouldable, waterproof splinting technique ideal for active people. Refer to the EXOS website for more information (exosaustralia.com.au) This means you can shower and even swim in your brace.
- Cambootsfor all foot and ankle problems including some fractures
Please note that displaced/complex fractures require an orthopaedic specialist opinion and therefore are not appropriate to be managed conservatively by our team.
However we do have a Trauma surgeon Dr David Love who we work very closely with and who is located opposite our clinic at the Epworth Hospital that you can be referred to via your GP.
