Overcoming Crooked Legs On A History Of Fractures?

Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
In babies with a history of shin fractures, although remodeling the bone after a fracture is very good, it may also cause residual symptoms after this fracture. Some residual symptoms that can be experienced in later growth periods or after adulthood can be in the form of foot changes, shortening of broken legs, complaints of pain in the fracture area, or foot support that is not optimal.
So, related to the complaint you made, the complaint of a bent leg due to the trauma of your left shin fracture as a baby may be a residual symptom or a long-term side effect that you are experiencing right now. This complaint can also cause complaints of pain, shortening of the foot causing disruption to walk, or changes in bone shape or angle of the bone which ultimately reduces the optimal footing on your feet.
Treatment of patients with bent legs after a previous history of trauma, is to do a reconstruction of shin bone surgery to help get a more normal shin tacking. This requires a preliminary examination by your bone surgeon, either by physical examination or radiological examination to determine the condition of your current shin, the angle of bone formed, or the presence or absence of leg length differences. So the doctor can make sure the right treatment for you.
For now, you can adjust your activities to the condition of your left foot, so that you can reduce any uncomfortable complaints that you might feel. Use shoes that are taller than the right foot, if the left leg is different in length from the right foot.
