Pain In The Ankle After Slipping On The Stairs?
Last night, I fell down the stairs this morning. Legs like curved. It hurts so much at the wrist. What should I do? Is it enough to just massage, or should I see a doctor?
Hello Lince, thanks for asking.
Basically, it is never medically recommended to do massage or massage when a person sprains or breaks a bone. The act of massage sometimes actually causes further tissue damage. The result is even more severe inflammation, characterized by swelling, redness, and pain. When someone is dislocated, the thing that can be done as first aid is, joint load with cloth or elastic material. The debate must be tight enough so that the joint does not move freely, but the brace must not be too tight because it can block the flow of blood. Cool compresses on sprained location to reduce swelling. Limit movement and if necessary use a stick or support when walking, so that the burden does not rest on the diseased joint. You can consume analgesics that are sold freely and labeled green, as long as you don't have an allergy to the drug.
You need to consult a doctor if you want to know clearly the condition of your joints and bones. The doctor will do a physical examination and radiological examination to look for joint dislocation (shift) or broken bones. Possibilities that can occur as a result of falls from a height are joint dislocation, fractures or fractures, ligament injuries, tendon injuries. After your condition is determined, the doctor will explain what actions need to be taken.
Hopefully this explanation can help you find the best solution. Regards.
