We understand your complaints and concerns. Disorders of the bone due to trauma often cause dislocations and bone invoices (broken bones)
Dislocation occurs in the joint, which is the meeting of bone forming a joint experience a shift in position due to the pressure received, causing limitations in movement. Other investigations such as bone x-rays, and MRI can help to find out bone and tissue abnormalities around the bone that is experienced. Management of dislocations should be done as well as possible so that the displaced bone can return to its original place and its function can return to normal.
The following is the management of dislocations performed by skilled health workers / general practitioners / orthopedic surgeons for dislocation cases:
Reduction is done to restore the position of the bone shifted in the dislocated joint. Reduction can be done manually or on the operating table Immobilization, which is restricted movement in order to reduce pain and facilitate healing of tissue that has experienced trauma after dislocation. Immobilization can be done by using a sling or splint within a few weeks of rehabilitation by doing movement exercises so that joint function returns to normal
Some of the following things you can do to reduce complaints and help speed healing of post-traumatic dislocations, namely:
Try to position your knees as normal as possible Avoid heavy activity because of dislocation prone to recurring worsening Compress with cold water if swelling and pain are known around the dislocation joint Compress with warm water if the inflammation has improved to reduce muscle tension around the dislocation area If painful, pain relievers can be considered for consumption If the complaint does not improve in a few weeks, do not hesitate to do a consultation and examination to a specialist bone surgeon to get the right treatment. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
