Serial plastering is an effective method for working with patients with spasticity or reduced mobility in joints (mainly the ankle joint). Serial plastering involves plastering the lower limbs several times in order to lengthen the muscles and induce corresponding changes in their structure. In combination with intensive exercises, serial plastering improves the range of mobility of the lower limbs, activates them and, above all, increases their functionality. The feet are plastered in the correct position with linearity, which helps to trophise the tissues, activate the muscles and increase their length.

It is worth considering conservative techniques such as serial plastering before using more invasive procedures (e.g. surgery). Serial plastering is definitely safer, carries fewer side effects and risks of possible complications than surgical procedures.

The influence of the foot on the rest of the body has so far been underestimated. With the correct positioning of the foot, we can influence the improvement of postural control, which in turn will translate into motor skills of the whole body such as improved gait quality, improved balance.

The aim of serial plastering is to provide a greater range of movement, to prevent complications from prolonged standing in positions that cause deformityAnother very important goal is to ensure the highest level of function and mobility.


Serial plastering can be successfully applied to both children and adults in disorders and disease entities accompanied by joint contractures and spasticity.

  • cerebral palsy,
  • conditions after brain damage, e.g. stroke, brain injury,
  • Duchenne muscular dystrophy,
  • idiopathic toe gait


  • restricted mobility of the ankle joint
  • risk of secondary deformities
  • spasticity/hypertonia
  • impaired linearity of the joint
  • shortening of muscles, nerves and ligaments


  • improved linearity of the ankle joint
  • increased muscle length
  • reduction of pain
  • reduction of spasticity/ increased tension in the muscle
  • change in gait pattern
  • improved plane of support


In order to qualify for serial plastering, an initial examination of the patient and an interview with the parent/guardian are necessary. The cost of the course with serial plastering is determined individually. A detailed therapy programme is established during the interview with the parent/guardian at the consultation.
