How To Overcome The Rupture Of The Superior Peroneal Retinaculum Muscle?
Good afternoon, if the superior peroneal retinaculum and posterior talofibular ligament muscles are broken, can therapy be used to connect? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Injuries to the ligaments in the ankle area as you mentioned usually occur due to sports injuries, but can also occur due to other accidents, trips, or other injuries. Injury to the posterior talofibular ligament is actually quite rare unless there is also injury to the talus (dislocation of the talus).
Treatment for ligament injuries depends largely on the severity of the injury. If there is a complete rupture of the ligament, the usually recommended therapy is ligament joint surgery. In a case like yours (there are 2 ligaments injured), you should consult directly with an orthopedic doctor for further evaluation and ask for the best treatment advice for the condition. If the ligaments are completely severed and not treated properly, bone stability, chronic pain, muscle atrophy, and difficulty walking can occur.
For now, to reduce the pain that occurs you can try to do the following:
REST - rest your feet and do not move too much
ICE - apply cold compresses to painful and swollen areas
COMPRESSION - Bandage the injured area with an elastic bandage
ELEVATION - raise the leg higher than the heart
You can also reduce pain by taking painkillers such as Paracetamol or other drugs from the NSAID class that are classified as over-the-counter or over-the-counter drugs.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
