Rheumatic Pain In Toddlers?
Afternoon, I want to ask. My child’s feet, every time he sits, he wants to stand like he hurts. Previously, my child was often physiotherapy, because of his shortened muscles. But after being physio, why is it still so painful? The physio schedule is still running. I just stopped for a moment, want to know the development if not in physio. Please help. thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The conditions experienced by your child, need to be ascertained in advance whether there really is a feeling of rheumatic pain, or just body language that looks like a person in pain. Because because of his physical condition, it could be that makes him unable to stand up from a sitting position without help and look in pain. But if it is really rheumatic pain, then that is something else.
Pain in joints can occur due to bacterial or viral infections, inflammation due to immune system abnormalities, or abnormal tissue growth in the area concerned. To ensure this a direct examination is required, it may even be necessary to support investigations such as X-rays and special labs.
So we recommend that your child continue to undergo physiotherapy, and only stop it after consulting with the doctor who asked him for first time physiotherapy, for example, his child's doctor, bone doctor or neurologist. As a parent you have the right to submit your proposal to see the progress of your child's recovery by stopping the physiotherapist first, but do not decide for yourself, because this could have an effect on your child's ability to walk in the future. Also ask the doctor, whether this rheumatic complaint is related to the conditions they are experiencing or not, and if it is not related to what the cause is.
In essence, your steps to undergo physiotherapy are good enough, but do not let the therapy have been in vain because you are making medical decisions without the doctor's consideration. If there is something that you don't know or doubt about, discuss it with your doctor. Consult another doctor if necessary. But in the meantime, handling must continue. To help reduce pain in your child's feet, warm compresses to the feet, and maintain ideal body weight, and not overweight. So, hopefully answering your question.
