It’s Hard To Walk On A History Of Falling Down Stairs?
assalammualaikum doctor, I am only 19 years old … have experienced nerve problems since 3 years after falling down the school stairs due to friends … and now I have a difficult problem to walk … so what is the way that I can recover right to walk as before? ..
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, what was the previous fall mechanism you experienced? Which body parts hit? What makes it difficult for you to walk, is it because you feel weak, painful, or stiff? Do other complaints arise other than difficulty walking?
Difficulty walking after falling from a height may arise due to the following factors:
Lower limb component disorders, for example due to fractures, joint dislocations, ligament injuries, bursitis, muscle aches
Disorders of the spinal components that control the function of the lower limbs, for example due to herniation of the pulposus nucleus, fractures or vertebral fractures
Brain disorders that control also lower limb function, such as bleeding in the skull, skull fractures
Other factors that are not always related to the collapse process, such as fibromyalgia, peripheral neuropathy, impaired coordination and balance, brain tumors, peripheral arterial disease, deep vein thrombosis, etc.
Depending on the cause and the treatment given to overcome it, your condition will be able to recover completely, but you may not. You need to get yourself checked by a doctor or neurologist so that the cause of your complaint can be evaluated more deeply, such as with an x-ray, CT scan, or other supporting tests. Some types of drugs, physiotherapy, or maybe certain surgical procedures your doctor may recommend to you.
In the meantime, what needs to be done is:
Do not massage carelessly around your spine, buttocks, to your legs
Even though it's hard, keep doing the moves as best you can with your feet
Live a healthy lifestyle, stay away from alcohol and cigarettes
Adjust your diet, increase your intake of vitamin B complex
Keep your ideal weight
Hope this helps ...
