New casts for broken limbs are light, flexible, removable

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Almost 7 million Americans will be rushed to the emergency room for a broken bone at some point in life. After the painful injury, you can face weeks or even months of wearing a big, itchy, smelly cast that can’t get wet. Now, the future of casts has arrived.

Many of us will break bones not once, but twice during our lives.

“First time was roller skates, and I just slipped backward, landed under my wrist. Second time was monkey bars,” said orthopedic surgeon Dr. Eric Stuffman.

Stuffmann is no exception, but he is part of a new solution, using an Exos brace instead of a cast to help heal broken bones.

Manali Shah broke her wrist snowboarding.

“I was coming downhill and took an edge wrong and landed backwards on the backside of my hand,” said Shah.

From the downhill to the doctor’s office, she’s one of the first to get the customized cast. It’s made out of three layers of high-tech polymers and foam that create a lightweight, adjustable, extremely strong brace.

Unlike traditional plaster and fiberglass casts, the Exos one can be removed daily.

“There’s still one benefit and that’s that the Exos is waterproof,” said Stuffman.

Shah had a traditional cast first, then changed to the Exos.

“It was great, because I could finally take it off to get a shower, I didn’t have to put a bag over my hand, and it just breathes really well,” said Shah.

Now she’s looking forward to tackling the mountain once again.

Dr. Stuffmann says he uses the new cast for most breaks. The only time he doesn’t use it is when he thinks the patient will not keep it on long enough during the day.

Exos casts are being used more and more throughout the country. They cost the same as traditional casts. Most of the time your insurance will cover it.

Server’s Disease

  • Signs and Symptoms

The most obvious sign of Sever’s disease is pain or tenderness in one or both heels, usually at the back. The pain also might extend to the sides and bottom of the heel, ending near the arch of the foot.

A child also may have these related problems:

       swelling and redness in the heel

       difficulty walking

       discomfort or stiffness in the feet upon awaking

       discomfort when the heel is squeezed on both sides

       an unusual walk, such as walking with a limp or on tiptoes to avoid putting pressure on the heel

Symptoms are usually worse during or after activity and get better with rest.

Metatarsalgia

About Your Diagnosis
Metatarsalgia is a term used to describe pain in the ball of the foot. This type of forefoot pain can be confused with many other causes of forefoot pain, so it is important to ensure the diagnosis is correct. Specifically, metatarsalgia refers to inflammation or pain of the metatarsal heads. Or in other words, “bone pain.” This pain usually is due to increased forces through the forefoot, such as when wearing high heels or when the normal fat pad has shrunk. Increased pressure through the ball of the foot results in inflammation of one or more of the metatarsal bones. Diagnoses that can be confused with metatarsalgia include Morton’s neuroma (nerve pain), sesamoiditis, and synovitis.
