Good evening, just Jaya, 20 years, two weeks ago I had an accident, and had a fracture in the shinbone of my right leg, I just treated traditionally, and my leg was given a buffer board and bandaged so strongly that I experienced swelling in the sole of the foot because the blood is blocked, is that okay? Or the bandage can’t be strong? Thank you

Good evening, thanks for the question


Planking or splinting that aims to immobilize the limbs that suspect a bone fracture must be done correctly and comply with several conditions. One of the conditions is before and after the splint is installed it is obliged to check circulation by checking the pulse around the injured leg, checking the sensory nerves of the injured area, and checking the motor limbs of the injured limb. Installation of splints that are too tight can cause blood circulation and impaired innervation which will only aggravate the patient's condition. For now if swelling does occur, it should be loosened, then do further consultations with your doctor so that you can do a direct physical examination and more adequate treatment.


That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
