, my hand was cracked at the wrist of the elbow and the fracture mark in the bone entered u0026amp; but I felt uncomfortable because I could not straighten it. r n r nI have been treated and the doctor advised me to use a cast. r n nI want to ask, r nWill the remaining cracks from the bone not harm me? And how do I restore my hand? Explanation please
Fractures in medical language called fractures can occur in various conditions, namely:
-Incomplete fracture: there is a fracture of the bone and the fault line does not cross from one side to the other
-Complete fracture: There is a complete fracture of the bone and the bone is divided into 2 parts, may be accompanied by a shifting condition or prominence of the broken bone
-Frantur crushed: fracture not accompanied by open wounds
-open fracture: fracture accompanied by open wounds, where this condition has the potential for infection.
Judging from the conditions you are describing, it is possible that there is a complete closed fracture in the area of your elbow. The part of the bone that has cracked so that it protrudes needs to be fixed in its normal position. If not repaired properly, the fracture can cause the bone to experience a "malunion", where the bone is permanently connected (bent) or the bone does not come back together but becomes dead tissue because it does not get blood supply. This complication can be prevented by fixing the bone into the position it was before the fracture so that it fits straight into its normal position and you no longer have limited movement of the elbow.
To overcome this condition you should consult with an orthopedic specialist (bones and joints). The doctor will perform an examination and suggest an x-ray / x-ray examination to determine the condition of your bones precisely. The alternative treatments given by the doctor are:
-Use of external fixation / cast
-Pen / ORIF mounting operation
The choice of method used depends on the condition of each patient. The bones will generally connect completely after 3 months. And further examination is needed to determine the condition of the bones after treatment by a doctor.
It is not advisable to go to a chiropractor or alternative medicine. Most of the patients do not experience recovery but instead experience various complications in the form of swelling, pain, infection and damage to body tissues due to improper treatment.
Suggestions for you:
-Rest for a while and avoid moving the part that has the fracture
-Avoid lifting heavy objects with the fracture
-Eat healthy and nutritious, consume foods high in calcium either in the form of supplements or milk
