How Long Does The Tendon Healing Process Break Up?
Excuse me, I want to ask. 1 month ago my hand was hit with a sickle then my tendon broke. When the normal tendon can recover as usual, right? thank you
Tendons are tissues that connect muscles to bones where tendons function to make movements in the joints. If there is interference or trauma can reduce the ability of the tendon and make a decrease in the function and strength of the area. Tendon disorders themselves are as varied as for example inflammation of the tendon or tendinitis which if getting worse can cause tendons to break up, in addition to trauma due to sports injuries or collisions and sharp incisions, it can also cause tendons to break up so surgery is needed to repair the tendon.
Repair and healing process itself varies in each individual where healing can take place within 2-3 months, therefore several efforts need to be done such as getting enough rest, taking medication given by the doctor as recommended, compressing the painful part using cold compresses, doing physical activity gradually or physical rehabilitation or physiotherapy can be done to restore the ability and strength of the area after surgery. Use a supporter for the affected area so that the area can be protected and not have too much weight which can slow healing.
Regularly control the orthopedic doctor to monitor the healing progress of the operated tendon so that it can return to normal.
