How can leg casts help injuries to heal?
Casts are designed to help your leg heal after an injury or after surgery. These casts are designed to to keep broken bones in place while they heal.

Leg casts are also designed to keep the joint above the injury and the joint below the injury stable. By not allowing movement too much movement, leg casts keep bones straight and aid in the healing process.

Leg casts can also keep muscles, tendons, and ligaments from moving. They help to decrease muscle contractions. By doing so, these soft tissues can heal more quickly.

Most people think of fiberglass or plaster when they think of casts. These casts remain on the leg the entire time it is healing.

Some leg casts are removable and have Velcro straps. These casts help the healing process, but they work a little differently than fiberglass or plaster casts.

Velcro braces keep the bones or injured tissues stable and straight like plaster or fiberglass casts, and Velcro leg casts allow you to put weight on the injured leg. This makes walking much easier.

Without a cast it would take longer for some injuries to heal, and these injuries may not heal properly without a cast.
