Casting

Serial casting can be used to delay the need for bracing by correcting the deformity sufficiently to allow bracing to then be re-instituted. Since a cast can be considered a full-time brace which cannot be removed, many parents find it preferable to braces, eliminating the problems of compliance and the difficulties of donning braces in uncooperative young children.
