Splinting is a common strategy for managing joint instability in hypermobility syndromes. There is a lot of mis-information associated with splinting and it’s not uncommon to get splints with little or no information about correct use.

This page will (when finished) be a collection of my thoughts on splinting. Best practice, based on my degree in Occupational Therapy and a lifetime of splinting for my own Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.
