How To Treat Bent And Long Leg Bones?
Good afternoon doctor. Permission to introduce myself My name is Faqih, a 18 year old Youth. Height 166.8 cm and body weight 55 kg. R nThe permission is to ask, how to treat long-sided legs? now my longer right leg is slightly bent and aches in the bone before the ankle. Thank you, doctor.
Good evening Faqih, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Normal feet, generally not long. The bones that make up the left and right leg bones should grow to the same length and stop at the same time anyway so that nothing is longer than the others. Conditions where one foot is longer than the other, can occur due to several things, such as:
Hemihyperplasia condition, when a body tissue is longer or bigger than other parts
Tilted hip joint position
History of injury or broken leg
Scoliosis condition, when the backbone curves to form the letter "S"
Leg joint displacement
Bone infections that occur in children
Developmental disorders of the baby
Tumors or bone cancer
So that in fact the long legs next to it is divided into two causes, which are indeed unbalanced in length, and whose length is actually the same, but its position is disturbed. Our advice is that you should consult your orthopedist first for a clear measurement, is it true that one of your legs is longer than the other or because there is an abnormal posture and what causes it. The right solution for your condition can only be known after going through tests, such as x-rays or CT scans to find out the condition of your bones.
Meanwhile, if your current condition makes walking difficult and feels painful, it doesn't need to be forced to walk. Put a wedge on your footwear to make the length of your feet the difference is not too far away. And to relieve pain in the tubers, you can take over-the-counter pain medication and warmly compress the part. So, hopefully answering your question.
