The broken bones were able to heal thanks to the immobilization of her leg in a cast.
Immobilization can also be secured by a form of traction called skin traction.
Bracing and immobilization is usually not required if this is the first occurrence of this condition.
Immobilization of a fracture site can be done internally or externally.
The primary goal of immobilization is to maintain the realignment of a bone long enough for healing to start and progress.
Immobilization by external fixation uses splints, casts, or braces.
