Hip Fracture Recovery Tips?
I want to ask again, today on May 2 2018 I checked with an orthopedic doctor and said the doctor had to learn to bend the knees, because my thighs became stiff due to lack of movement. So I immediately learned to bend my knees but it hurts a lot, is this a natural thing? Then how to recover to train my stiff muscles. R n r n * I broke my left thigh bone (closed and broke it in two parts), I had a pen insertion operation 2 weeks ago
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A fracture or fracture in the thigh is an example of a leg fracture. The human foot is made up of three types of long bones called the femur or shinbone, the shinbone or tibia, and the calfbone or fibula. So what you experience is a fracture of the femur.
The condition of a leg fracture can be caused by various things, including:
Excessive stress as in marathon runners
Injury during sports
Falling, beaten or exposed to certain violence
After a complete diagnosis, usually through x-rays, an orthopedic specialist or orthopedist will determine the best treatment for the fracture, which in your case is a pen.
After surgery, it is true that restriction of movement and foot activity is one of the important points of healing. However, any limb that has not been moved for a long time will inevitably become stiff and may shrink the muscles, causing pain when starting to move. That's what it takes practice.
Ideally, this exercise is directly supervised by the doctor concerned or by a physiotherapist, so that the correct stages are reached. In the sense of not immediately trying to exaggerate the movement, but also not stopping immediately because the pain due to discomfort is certain. However, if for one reason or another, it is not possible, then what you can do is make small movements, tighten and relax muscles, while still taking painkillers that are given regularly to reduce pain. Every now and then ask your family for help moving your legs. Of course, all these movements you should first consult with the doctor who treats you.
In addition, you can also help recovery from within by increasing the consumption of water, and high protein foods such as eggs, cheese, milk, yogurt, tempeh, tofu, salmon, meat, and other vegetables and fruits. Don't forget to take control routine to see the progress of your recovery. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
