Morning .. I want to ask, one week ago I had a traffic accident. my left hand cannot be moved. after a few days, my left hand was able to move from elbow to fingers, it was able to move almost normally (unable to lift the load). But my arms cannot be lifted up yet, if I want to be lifted up or to the side, I have to help with my right hand. Please enlighten me …
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Injury during a traffic accident can be mild, can also be fatal. Determining this condition is not enough just based on a brief description as you mentioned. First, you need to have yourself checked by a doctor to have a thorough physical examination, or maybe also assisted by supporting tests, such as x-rays, CT scans, and so on.
The condition of your hands and arms that still cannot be moved optimally after an injury may refer to a mild condition due to post-injury muscle pain. However, it could also, this complaint arises because of more serious injuries, such as joint dislocations, ligament injuries, fractures or broken bones, and so on. Frequently, more serious conditions will not only make it difficult for you to move your hands and arms, but also trigger pain, swelling, bruising, numbness, or various other complaints.
As explained above, to make it clear to what extent your injury has previously affected your body, you better check yourself directly to the doctor or surgeon. Before that, it is advisable for you to get more rest, minimize the movement of the hands and arms excessively, wear comfortable clothes, do not carelessly massage areas that have been injured, and apply ice cubes or warm compresses if there are pain, swelling, or other complaints which is annoying.
Hope this helps ...
