I want to ask how to treat hands that have been electrocuted. all of my father’s left hand and left shoulder which has been electrocuted are stiff and movement is painful and very painful in the shoulder and left hand
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Previously you should explain first, when the electric shock occurred, the type of electricity (AC / DC), and how much electricity?
Electric shocks, especially those with large power, can cause various side effects on the body. In addition to causing burns to the skin, electric shock can also cause interference with internal organs, for example:
disorders of the muscles, both skeletal muscle (causing excessive muscle contraction) and heart muscle (which can cause electrical disturbances of the heart) excessive muscle contraction can also cause joint dislocation (loose joints) to fractures or broken bones disorders of the brain such as spasms, internal bleeding brain, memory disorders, sleep disorders disorders of the spinal nerves that can cause paralysis, weakness in the limbs, numbness, chronic pain, to impotence You should bring your father to see him to the doctor for further examination. Someone who experiences electric shock, especially with high power, must undergo a complete examination. In addition to physical examination, an EKG (heart rhythm record) is also needed, a laboratory check-up, and an x-ray examination if an injury to a bone or joint is suspected (as experienced by your father).
For the time being, your father can consume pain relievers such as paracetamol, compress the area with cold compresses, and rest his hands. This is just a temporary solution to relieve pain, a doctor's examination must be done immediately.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
