Plaster cast for sprains13th February 2009

Professor Sallie Lamb, an expert in rehabilitation at the University of Warwick, said the discovery that not moving the area was "contrary to popular clinical opinion".
"Tubular compression bandage, which is currently the most commonly used of all the supports investigated, was, consistently, the worst treatment."
