A waterproof bandage for swimming can protect your cast during swimming or other water activities. Casts present numerous challenges, especially when showering and bathing.
Wearing a cast in a moist or damp environment can cause mould or mildew to build up underneath, which can adversely affect your recovery and cause even more discomfort. Some waterproof cast options exist, but they don’t always keep water out completely. An even better idea is covering your cast with a completely waterproof cast and bandage protector. Choosing the right Limbo for your needs is easy with our quick online quiz.
Many people assume that a waterproof cast will allow them to swim or bathe without worries, but this is usually not the case. In the majority of cases, “waterproof” actually only means water-resistant. The commonly used “waterproof” casts might be able to handle a few splashes of water or a spilled drink, but it is unlikely to be suitable for bathing. Moisture may still seep in and cause mildew or infection.
A more straightforward option, however, is to purchase a fully waterproof cast cover for swimming. They can be worn in the bath, shower, and swimming pool, and they will keep your cast 100% dry and protected. After an injury, you may choose to use hydrotherapy to speed up the recovery process. It helps to achieve a wider range of motion much faster but participating in hydrotherapy with a cast can be problematic.
