What is a Thumb Spica Splint used for?
A spica splint is a type of orthopedic splint used to immobilize the thumb and/or wrist while allowing the other digits freedom to move. It is used to provide support for thumb injuries (ligament instability, sprain, or muscle strain), gamekeeper's thumb, osteoarthritis, de Quervain's syndrome, or fractures of the scaphoid, lunate, or first metacarpal. It is also suitable for post-operative use or after removal of a hand/thumb cast. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spica_splint)
