Is A Broken Bone Prone To Breaking?
Good afternoon, I want to ask if a broken bone is prone to breaking? And whether the power possessed will weaken (cannot lift weights) and can it return to normal? I broke my left hand. Can I drink ice? At the time of a broken bone? Thanks doc
Hello Rynaldi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
A broken bone will indeed improve again over time, but the strength of the bone that has undergone repair is weaker than the strength of the bone before the fracture occurs, so of course the part of the bone that has been broken is more susceptible to fracturing again if an injury occurs.
For endurance, a bone that has been broken also naturally decreases but will not cause the inability to lift weights unless the fracture is quite heavy and is not treated properly so that it causes damage / disturbance to the nerves or muscles around it.
Regarding the consumption of ice water, this is permissible and will not affect the healing process or the therapy that you live.
In the meantime, it is highly recommended that you carry out therapy in accordance with the recommendations of orthopedic surgeons so that the process of repairing your fractures goes well and can still maintain its function as close as possible to the function before the injury occurs.
Do not deliberately move your broken hand, put pressure on the hand or massage it because it can worsen complaints or aggravate injuries / fractures that occur so that repairs do not occur optimally.
I hope this helps.
