Hello Ms. Annisatri Thank you for consulting us at HealthReplies.com.
Basically, a sprain is an event that occurs suddenly when changing movements or decreasing speed. It also can occur when falling, colliding with people or other objects and also when landing in an improper position after jumping. In that condition the ligaments (connective tissue between muscle and bone or bone to bone) are accidentally forced to stretch beyond their limits, which can result in ligament tearing or ligament splinting.
Signs of spleen include pain around the joints that have been sprained, bruised, swollen in the joints and the inability of the joints when supporting the load. The severity of the sprain depends on how heavy the ligament damage is. Basically the handling and advice given by the doctor to you is actually in accordance with the rules of spraining management, but when the advice and therapy have been implemented but the symptoms are still persistent then our advice is to consult / control back to the treating doctor or you can also consult with a doctor others who are experts in their fields, namely orthopedic doctors to find out more about the actual situation, is it really just a sprain or is there another possibility that causes swelling and pain to still not go away.
Here we submit some conditions that require when you need to consult with your doctor about the condition of the sprains that occur:
when self-care is unsuccessful and the sprains do not improve after three days of unbearable pain at all, unable to bear the burden of the area of the injury that feels numb or cannot feel any sensations of having repeated injuries in the same area there is a reddening area that widens sprained joints In addition to continuing to carry out the recommendations given by your doctor, you can also take several additional steps that can be useful to relieve pain in cases of sprains such as limiting the area of movement with the elastic bandages you are using, and released when you want to sleep, other than that you can put your injured leg while sleeping or sitting in a higher position. You can use an additional bench as a base to put your feet when you sit or you can also use a pillow to support your feet when you sleep. Thus we can convey, hopefully our answers can help you. thanks.
