Orhopedy About Bones?
I want to ask the short leg on the other side due to an accident 8 years ago, can it be repaired again, about 2 cm the difference … and the ankle is a bit tilted, what is the solution
Having a history of trauma or trauma to the bone 8 years ago, and now you feel a shortening of the bone about 2cm is a form of complication of the bone trauma.
Shortening of the bone after trauma can be caused by:
1. Trauma with fragmented bone fractures or small fractures causing damage to the fracture area
2. There is no standard treatment for fractures since the beginning of the trauma
3. Handling is done but there is bending of the fracture area during healing
4. Fractures do not connect perfectly
Therefore, to ensure the condition of the fracture, you should consult an orthopedic doctor for evaluation and a plan to treat a difference of 2cm with the other side of the body. The doctor will plan the necessary investigations to determine the condition of your bones. For basic treatment, you can use auxiliary shoes with a height that can increase the bone gap. In addition, surgery may be planned according to the results of your doctor's evaluation.
Therefore, immediately visit your orthopedic surgeon for the necessary examination and evaluation.
Thus the information that we can convey, also read the difference in foot length.
