Is The Left Leg Bent After An Accident 7 Years Ago Can Still Be Fixed?
In the morning, I want to ask about the condition of my left leg which has been bent for about 7 years due to an accident I have experienced. But my left leg is still able to walk. The question is whether my left leg can be stretched back at the age of 19 ….?
Thank you for the question.
Legs that are bent after an accident are usually caused by broken bones or dislocated joints that are not handled properly, causing bones to not blend perfectly, the position of the joints is not in place, the muscles experience atrophy, or interfere with other structures around it. At first, this bent leg might not cause any significant complaints. However, over time, of course you can experience difficulties when walking, recurring back pain, and limitations of other activities that are quite disturbing due to this condition.
The crookedness of your feet should be handled early by a doctor or orthopedic surgeon. With experience and competence, your condition may later be treated with surgery (surgery) or may be combined with other therapeutic modalities. How big is the potential for the bent leg back again as before can vary depending on the severity of the condition, the cause, how quickly the treatment is done, your general health condition, and many other factors.
So, you should consult with your doctor directly at the nearest health facility.
I hope this helps.
