How do I put on a splint?

If you are enrolled in an online rehab program, we will demonstrate this to you in the first set of videos. Otherwise, here are some instructions.

  1. Place the splint between your ribs and pelvis. (Overlap onto the ribs or pelvis is okay; just make sure the splint covers the main part of your abdomen).
  2. Stand with your feet hips’-width apart.
  3. Untuck your pelvis and keep your ribs aligned over the pelvis.
  4. Exhale and draw your navel to your spine.
  5. Pull the two sides of the splint across your middle and fasten the closure. It should be snug like a hug, but NOT tight like a tourniquet. You want supportive, but not restrictive.
