Shoulder Causes Such As Numbness With A History Of Falling Off The Motor?
Good afternoon, my sister had fallen from the motorbike about 8 months ago and the one who fell onto the asphalt was on the left shoulder, now her shoulder feels numb from being hit and doesn’t feel any pain. Are there any abnormalities in the skin, muscles or bones, how to overcome them?
Good evening, Hani Thankyou for asking.
To find out if there is an abnormality in his left shoulder, it is advisable to see a bone surgeon (orthopedic), because if there is a loud enough impact on the shoulder, it can cause damage to the parts that make up the shoulder, such as:
upper arm fracture broken collarbone fracture upper arm bone from the shoulder joint torn tearing that supports the shoulder damage to nerves near the shoulder All these conditions require further examination. The orthopedic surgeon may ask for an X-ray examination of your sister's left shoulder to see the condition of the bones, and if needed it may require an MRI examination of the shoulder to see the state of the muscles. If the examination is suspected of damage to the nerves, your sister may also be treated together with a neurologist and may also be with a medical rehabilitation doctor.
For the most appropriate treatment, it is recommended to follow the doctor's orders, may be given medication and physiotherapy if necessary. In the meantime, if there is no pain when moved, keep trying to do the activities as usual, but still as much as possible, do not be too forced, and do not keep a heavy burden on the left shoulder.
I hope this helps.
