Hello Riza, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com

Previously I want to confirm in advance, whether you have indeed done an examination to the doctor and X-rayed so that you have obtained information that there is a fractured bone above the knee?

If indeed you have obtained a fractured bone information, you should not do the massage because the fractured bone is not treated with massage. Basically after an accident, an injury that can occur is not just an injury to the bone. There can also be injury to the muscles, joints, bursa, or surrounding connective tissue (tendons and ligaments). Not all types of injuries can be detected by X-rays. Therefore, if after 3 weeks your feet still feel painful and swollen, you should immediately check your orthopedic doctor for further evaluation. The doctor can do a direct examination and recommend an examination with other modalities such as CT scan or MRI.

To temporarily overcome your pain and swelling, you can minimize the movement of your feet, compress swollen areas with warm compresses several times a day, and take pain medications such as paracetamol. Nevertheless, you should still check yourself to the doctor so you can clearly know the cause of the pain and the treatment is done in accordance with the cause.

So much information from me, Semgoa enough to answer
