The Foot Is Swollen And Feels Hot After Falling From The Motorcycle?
want to ask, my 46-year-old father fell from a motorcycle yesterday and his left leg was swollen. my father said the swelling didn’t hurt but it was so hot, why was that and what was the solution? Can I massage it? R nThank you.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. After a person has an accident, a lot of things can happen to him, ranging from muscle injuries, muscles being pulled or tightened, tearing of limb structures such as ligaments, bone displacement, nerve injury, rupture of blood vessels, and fractures or cracks in bones. All of these conditions can trigger inflammation which from the outside, the appearance of symptoms may be more or less the same as pain, swelling, redness and feeling hot.
So, to deal with your father, must be examined directly by a doctor first, perhaps with the help of x-rays, to find out whether the structure inside is fine, whether there is a broken bone or just a muscle injury and so forth. The handling later will be adjusted to the diagnosis, if there is a shifted bone is returned, if there is a broken bone will be joined, and if there is a torn structure, the leg will be bandaged until the structure is restored to normal.
Regarding whether or not the massage is possible, if the cause is only the muscles that are tense or interested, it is OK. However, if there is a fracture, massaging can only worsen the situation. So the step is to have your father consult a doctor first, make a diagnosis, then determine whether he can massage, and which areas can be massaged and which should not be touched first.
Meanwhile, reduce the workload of the painful legs, compress with cold compresses, lift in a position higher than the body with a lying body position, consumption of anti-inflammatory drugs that are sold freely by reading the rules of use listed, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
