Causes And Ways To Deal With Pain And Cramps In Right Hip Fractures?
Hello, I want to ask. In 2016, I suffered a fracture in the right waist due to an accident and also had a large thigh on one side. What I want to ask to this day is sometimes my bones still ache and my right leg feels painful. What causes this? And why is my right thigh like the current one bigger than my left thigh?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Pain in your waist and right leg can be caused by the following conditions, namely:
1. Spondylolisthesis is a disease of the spine characterized by one of the bones shifting from the normal position and leaning forward so that it covers the underlying bone. This condition is at risk of pressing on the spinal cord. If it happens, then the patient will complain of pain, numbness, weakness in the legs and difficulty controlling bowel movements or small.
2. Hernia pulposus or pinched nerve hernia, which is a disease of the spine that is marked by a cushion or disc between the vertebrates (spine) out of its original position so that the spinal cord is clamped.
Both spinal diseases above can be triggered by a history of previous trauma. Meanwhile, your right thigh getting bigger can be caused by the following conditions, namely:
1. Disruption of blood flow behind veins.
2. Disruption of lymph vessel flow.
Because many things can happen, I suggest you should consult with an orthopedic specialist. The doctor will conduct a medical interview and related physical examination. Next will do the necessary investigations, such as spinal X-rays, spinal MRI and limb ultrasound. If the cause is already known, the doctor will consult a more expert doctor or will handle it by himself depending on the problem that occurred. You may be treated with medication or even require surgery, depending on the cause.
In the meantime, you can use a special spinal corset, to help the spine support the body and reduce the pain that arises. You can also consult a medical rehab specialist to request physiotherapy.
Thus hopefully useful.
