What is Serial Casting?
Serial Casting is a technique for correcting severe toe-walking. Temporary casts are used to increase mobility in the ankle. The casts iteratively increase the mobility in the ankle, gradually returning the ankle to its natural range of motion.
The goal of Westside’s serial casting program is to achieve long-term results for our children that will sustain through adulthood. We never forget that a kid is a kid by ensuring therapy is fun, safe, and inviting. Our expectation: life-changing results.
What is it used for?
Toe Walking that occurs over a long period of a child’s development can lead to severe stiffness of the muscles in the foot and the ankle. At this point, serial casting is needed to correct the condition. Surgery is often the only alternative to serial casting, and the costs, pain, and rehab timeline can be significantly higher than the process of using non-invasive serial casting. Serial casting is a way to avoid the risks and costs of surgical intervention and at the same time maximize medical outcomes for your child.
