Rheumatic Pain Does Not Go Away When Broken Bones?
Good afternoon, I have been working on a bone fracture for more than a month, now I can walk with a stick, but I can’t walk without a stick because I still feel rheumatic pain, usually the pain will disappear within a few weeks. Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm in advance, is the treatment you are referring to a treatment to an orthopedic doctor or a treatment that you do alone or a bone shaman?
Basically, a fractured bone will experience healing in approximately 6-8 weeks. Pain is usually most felt in the first 2 weeks, then it will begin to slowly decrease. Cracked bones will heal by themselves with rest, meaning that it does not place excessive strain on the fractured bone. If indeed you cannot walk without a cane because of pain, you should not force yourself to walk without a cane. You still have to practice moving your feet so that your leg muscles don't experience wasting and your joints don't become stiff. You can try lifting and bending your legs repeatedly when you sit or lie down, or do sports that don't put strain on the bones such as swimming. If indeed after 6-8 weeks your bones still hurt, return to the orthopedic doctor who treats you for further evaluation.
If you have not checked yourself into a doctor, you should immediately consult a doctor to make sure that what you experience is just a fractured bone, there are no other injuries. The doctor can also suggest the best therapy to help speed up bone healing (for example installing splints if needed).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
