If your cast is just lightly wet, use a blow dryer on the cool setting to dry. If your cast is very wet or soaked, you will need to come in to have a new cast put on. Please call the office before coming in to discuss with the clinical staff.
Some swelling is normal after an injury. To reduce swelling, keep your cast elevated above heart level as much as possible for the first 48 to 72 hours. You can also apply an ice pack to the area. If you feel the swelling has reduced since cast application and the cast is loose, please call the office to discuss with the clinical staff.
