Side Effects After A Sprained Hand?
Good evening, I want to ask Dina. What results from sprained hand? Then is it true that because of the palm of your hand being hit by a ruler results in swollen and sprained hands? Mhon replies, thank you. 😊
Thank you for the question.
Sprains are actually not a standard term in the medical realm. This condition is usually used to describe the improper movement of the hand or leg muscles (such as twisting, bending, or overstretching) that triggers symptoms of inflammation, such as pain, swelling, redness, warmth, bruising, and limited movement.
Medically, sprains themselves can be a mild condition, can also be serious, depending on the extent to which these conditions cause damage to body tissues. For example, if a sprain only makes muscle cramps, then this condition is usually mild and will subside in a short amount of time with more rest, the application of ice cubes in the sprained area, do not massage carelessly sprained areas, wrap the sprained area so that the swelling and movement can be minimized, and take paracetamol if necessary to relieve pain. However, if this sprain causes more severe tissue damage, such as joint dislocation, ligamentous rupture, nerve pain, cracks or fractures, etc., of course self-treatment as mentioned above is not enough. First, you need to see your doctor, neurologist, or surgeon for an in-depth evaluation, including through physical and supportive examinations (such as x-rays, CT scans). Depending on the severity, later such sprains can be treated simply by administering drugs, external immobilization, surgery, physiotherapy, or other therapeutic modalities.
Slamming the ruler hard on the palm can clearly cause the hands to become inflamed, resulting in swelling and sprained-like symptoms. However, as noted above, sprains are usually used to describe movements such as twisting, bending, or overstretching. So this is not always the same understanding as what happens when the palm is hit by a ruler.
Hope this helps ...
