Legs Are Difficult To Walk After A Dry Wound Due To Falling From A Motorcycle?
Afternoon. Right knee knee blisters after falling from the motorcycle. Now it’s dry. But my right leg can’t walk normally. even the knee of the right leg to bend is still painful and feels weak. Nearly 1 month. Why do you think?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Knee conditions that are difficult to move after the wound dries after a motorcycle accident can be caused by several possibilities, including:
The occurrence of contractures in muscle / tendon / ligament / skin tissue due to incomplete wound recovery
Broken knee bone
Dislocation of the knee joint
Injury to the soft tissue making up the knee joint, for example: sprain or rupture of the ligament
We recommend that you be examined directly by a doctor or orthopedic specialist so that evaluation and treatment can be needed as needed. In addition to the history and physical examination, the doctor may plan a supplementary examination, such as an x-ray or MRI.
As a suggestion, if the knee is still swollen, you can do the RICE steps as follows:
Rest (avoid excessive activity of the knee, rest the injured knee)
Ice (cold pack of injured knee for 15-20 minutes, every 2-3 hours every day)
Compression (dressing the injured knee with an elastic bandage, it is advisable to consult with your doctor first about how to use it so as not to aggravate the injury)
Elevation (lift the injured leg higher with a pillow as a support when lying down to reduce swelling / inflammation)
Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
