Overcoming The Knee That Is Often Stiff After Thigh Fracture Surgery?
Excuse me, I’m 32 years old, I broke my thigh bone and had surgery on January 14, 2018 yesterday (now 3 months after surgery). I have a problem with my knee bending, what’s the right way to do knee bending exercises after surgery, so far Yaya’s wife has been practicing bending ( my wife moves). Is the method like that correct and every time you bend, why do you have to repeat from the beginning because the next day you will come back.rnPlease guide, thank you very much in advance.
Fractures usually require surgery to place a plate so that the broken bone can be reattached and allowed to grow until it rejoins. Of course this takes time and during this time the movement must continue to run even with a limited frequency and intensity. The reason for this is that muscles tend to atrophy if they are allowed to remain stationary and not contract. Regarding muscle training itself is actually included in the realm of physiotherapy. Of course in the early stages, assistance or assistance is needed in moving the muscles, but gradually it will be increased until it can use its own strength without the need for assistance. This will depend on the progress of your post-operative recovery. You can find out how far your progress is, of course, by conducting regular check-ups with your doctor to evaluate whether the function of the broken bone can return to normal. Here we attach an article about fractures. Hope it is useful.
