Management Of Fractures In The Wrist?
Hello, good morning, I want to ask nie, after I broke a bone in the wrist when the fracture was broken, the bone condition was practically crushed so that a pen was installed from the outside by a team of hospital doctors. However, my ankle could not be fully bent up and down, it could only be 45 degrees. The question is why if you step on it it still hurts, I still walk with one stick, thank you.
Hi Arfan, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
When did you have this surgery? In general, fracture management depends on the severity of the fracture, which includes repositioning (returning the fracture to its original position) and holding the fracture in place using a cast / splint or plate / pin surgery. After surgery, it is usually recommended that you do gradual joint exercises as soon as possible to prevent joint stiffness. If after surgery, if you do not do joint motion exercises, joint stiffness can occur and you will have difficulty moving it. Has your doctor recommended that you walk on the affected leg with the help of crutches / sticks? The pain you still feel may be related to joint stiffness. In addition, if the bone healing is not complete, you may still experience pain because your feet are bearing sudden body weight. Usually during the healing period the doctor will suggest when is the right time for you to step on and lean half on your feet (partial weight bearing) and when you can rely fully on your feet (full weight bearing).
My advice is that you should consult a medical rehabilitation specialist. Your doctor will examine you and determine what physical exercise program you can do to restore muscle strength and treat joint stiffness. also consult with your doctor about the right time to start tread and walk.
