Overcoming The Long Hand After The Accident?
Good afternoon doctor.rnI’m Nadia, when I was 15 years old I had an accident and closed a fracture in my hand!! When it happened I was taken to the hospital for first aid, after a few hours the family asked for treatment at a broken shaman. it doesn’t hurt and is able to function BUT NOT like the time before it happened BECAUSE my hands look crooked, a bit swollen, and short. But the family and I ignored it because the pain was gone. and when compared to the left hand, the difference in length is 5CM until now I am 21 years old. And lately, I often have a lot of pain in my right hand,rnDoctor, is there a solution for me?😢rnThank you doctor
Fracture is a condition where the continuity of bone tissue is broken, most of which are caused by injury (except in the elderly with osteoporosis, where bones can be broken by a slight impact). Fractures are usually classified into open and closed fractures. Open fractures usually get more immediate help because the patient will usually seek medical attention immediately, if they see the bone protruding out. While closed fractures are generally more complicated, because patients do not immediately have their bones checked by an orthopedic doctor and more often take them to a massage therapist or traditional healer for fractures. Whereas medically, fractures must receive help in the form of realigning the bones in their proper position, and installing a pen to prevent movement of the bones during the healing period. Fractures that are not immediately checked by a doctor can result in abnormal bone growth or even not be able to heal. This is what is often seen as a bent or shortened bone. This condition should be immediately examined by an orthopedic surgeon for immediate treatment, which is usually operative, before the bone has hardened abnormally and the handling procedure becomes more complicated. Here we attach an article about fractures. Hope it is useful.
