Strength Of Leg Muscles After Fracture?
I want to ask, I was a few months ago operating on a fracture in the lower left leg of the kneecap, on the uppermost shin bone. Then I had surgery and returned to normal, the pen has also been removed. My question is how to restore the left leg muscles to the same as before or the same strength as the right leg muscles, which I feel if the right leg is 100% strength, then the left leg can only be 75%. Please explain the right solution so that muscle strength can return again. thank you 🙂

A fracture is the breaking of a bone in two or more parts. Broken bones cause impaired bone function and bone stability is also impaired. The condition of a fracture can occur as a result of a collision with another object, accident, pathological fracture or physical violence.
Side effects that occur in patients with fractures are reduced or lost bone function due to impaired bone strength and stability, muscle tension, pain, bleeding, and infection.
To find out the implications of a trauma for the risk of fractures, it is necessary to consult directly with a bone doctor so that doctors can diagnose through interviews, physical examinations, and supporting examinations such as blood tests, radiological examinations. After the diagnosis is established, the treatment plan can be given, either through the repositioning of the cast, external fixation or installation of the pen.
In connection with your question, a history of fractures, and the installation of pens and the ineffectiveness of muscle movements during the treatment and recovery period, complications in the form of decreased angles of joint motion and decreased muscle strength in the area around the broken bone can occur. In such conditions, muscle function training can be planned, especially after the recovery period begins and your surgeon has stated that you are able to work as usual. Thus, exercising muscle and joint motion after the surgery phase as recommended by the doctor is expected to help prevent a decrease in muscle strength after healing.
Similarly, muscle and joint training after pen-taking surgery. Usually, after the surgery is completed, if the exercise of the limb function performed independently is less than optimal, it can also be assisted with muscle and joint function training with medical rehabilitation under the supervision of a medical rehabilitation doctor, both with thigh muscle strength training exercises or calf muscle training and knee joint. Thus, in several training sessions, it is expected that your muscle function can be better than 75%.
Thus the info we can convey.
