How to make a temporary splint

Last Modified: July 14, 2022

Strains, sprains and broken bones can happen anywhere and at any time. For this reason, knowing how to create first aid solutions, when at home or in nature, with the supplies you have on hand can be an extremely valuable skill. For advice on maneuvering these sensitive, often emergent situations, we asked Jennifer Tobin, PA-C, Parkview Ortho Express, to demonstrate the various ways of immobilizing an injury and making a temporary splint until medical assistance arrives.
