A fracture is a condition in which a bone discontinuity occurs due to an impact that is so hard that the bone is too strong. There are various types of fractures where the treatment itself is determined by the type and location of the fracture. In forearm fractures where there are two bones in it, if a fracture occurs and it has been confirmed by an X-ray examination, it is necessary to carry out further treatment by an orthopedic doctor.
If there is a fracture and a shift, one of which will be an operation to correct the position of the bone and fix it, one of which is by installing a plate or pen to hold the fracture position so that it does not shift until the healing process.
If it has been going on for a long time and new bone formation has occurred, it can make the healing imperfect, one of which is the shape of the arm which can not be like when it has not been broken and also decreases in function, movement or ability such as bearing weight.
For that, check your condition at an orthopedic specialist for evaluation and determine the action to be carried out according to your condition. Later, physiotherapy can also be done to restore the function and ability of the arm.
