Body cast. Nurse applying a body cast to an immobilized patient. A whole body cast is most often used following spinal surgery, so as to keep the spine aligned correctly while healing or bone fusion occurs. The spinal surgery could be to fuse broken vertebrae, or to treat curvature of the spine (scoliosis).
