This quantitative, cross-sectional survey design study conducted with 409 OTs investigated the influence of practice and personal context factors on the choices that OTs make when addressing upper-extremity contractures. In interventions that had a high likelihood of being used, specifically static splinting, stretching, and positioning, there were no practice context barriers found, yet it was with these interventions that there was little belief in their effectiveness.
