Hi Princess, thank you for asking.

After a motor vehicle accident there is indeed a possibility of injury to muscles, bones, nerves, and organs in the body. To be able to know the exact diagnosis of the condition of the bones must be done a physical examination and supporting examination. The doctor will first perform a basic physical examination by examining the area of ​​injury. Check whether there are abnormal bone shapes, pain when bones are moved, crepitus (creaking) during examination. Next will be carried out supporting radiological examinations such as X-rays, CT-scan, or MRI. This examination is mainly to ensure the presence or absence of bone injury, the location of the injury, the shape and severity of the injury. Bone injuries can also be accompanied by other soft organ injuries.

Avoid massage on the area of ​​the bone that is suspected of injury especially if the injury affects the large bone or spine. That is because massage if done improperly can worsen bone injuries, nerve injuries, and blood vessel injuries.

At least consult with your doctor to ascertain the shape of the bone injury if any, so that the doctor can plan the right course of action. You do not need to worry because not all bone injuries require surgery. The most important thing is to consult a doctor as soon as possible.

Hope you can help a little. Regards.
