Answer

Patients should be informed that, even while wearing a cast, their treatment will include mild, passive range-of-motion exercises. After the cast is removed, physical and occupational therapy should be started immediately, and some ADLs should be resumed as soon as possible in accordance with the recommendations of the physical and occupational therapists.
