Proper Shoulder Dislocation Management?
I had my shoulder dislocated due to a traffic accident, indeed in the last 2 months it was handled by a chiropractor and I also had fractures, the bone has recovered, but for the shoulder joint, my arm cannot move and there is swelling to the tips of the fingers, but for the fingers “The hand can move, my question is whether there is damage to the ligaments, tendons or nerves it requires a doctor’s analysis and do I have to consult a medical expert? Also for drug treatment, what brand of medicine should you take? Thank you.
If there is an impact with a large enough force that hits the bone for example an injury or traffic accident, it can cause problems for the part that is injured. The conditions experienced can vary from mild to severe, ranging from bruising on the outer part to fractures that can be accompanied by changes in position in the joints, tissue damage, nerve damage and others. Therefore it is not appropriate if you experience an injury to be left alone for too long without confirming its condition to the doctor so that both physical examinations and supporting examinations such as X-rays, ultrasound or MRI scans are carried out.
It is not impossible that manipulations or actions carried out on the injured organ without confirming the condition, for example in traditional healers, fractures can make the condition experienced does not get better. One of the conditions that can occur is more severe damage that is permanent in nature so that it can cause a reduction in the function of the joints or cause permanent disability. Reduction in joint ability itself can occur from reduced joint mobility, reduced joint strength to damage that makes the joint unable to move at all.
If you are currently experiencing problems, it is necessary to immediately conduct an examination by an orthopedic specialist to confirm the condition, if necessary, actions will be carried out in accordance with the conditions experienced and can also be consulted with a medical rehabilitation specialist for physical therapy to restore function and ability. the part that is injured but of course the results may not be as good if checked immediately when the first injury occurred to your shoulder.
