I had an accident, and the skin on the back of my leg was injured because it was scratched by asphalt said the nurse was quite deep, the first day I was able to smoothly use my feet to walk but the next day I could not lower my legs, the wound would feel like being held if I lowered my foot from a place sleep
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Accidents to fall on the asphalt can be a mild condition, can also be dangerous. It could be that the wound on the back of your foot is not the only tissue damage caused by the accident, but there are also other tissue damage, for example fractures or broken bones, ligament injuries, bursitis, joint dislocation, osteomyelitis, cellulitis, and so on.
The difficulty you move your feet after the accident can occur purely due to inflammation of the skin asphalt scratched, or it can also indicate other tissue damage as we have explained above. A dangerous condition that you should be aware of if your complaint appears accompanied by severe pain, swelling, bleeding that does not stop, disruption of sensation (numbness or tingling), toes that feel cold, pale, or other complaints that are more severe.
If there is one or more of the above danger signs that you experience, we recommend that you check yourself again to a doctor or surgeon so that your condition can be further evaluated, namely by physical examination or radiological examination, such as x-rays, CT scans , etc. Only then can your doctor give you the best definitive treatment.
At this time, we recommend you to:
Compress the affected leg with a warm compress
Don't over-move your leg after an accident
Not wearing tight pants, not also bending the legs too long
At rest, raise your leg position
Do not carelessly massage or give any treatment to the legs that crashed without consulting a doctor first
Hope this helps ...
