Treatment Of Bone Dislocation?
Hi, I’m Novita My sister is having problems with the elbow joint in her left hand. Initially it occurs because of the pull that is quite hard after undergoing treatment of dislocation of the elbow joints. What I want to ask is what specialist doctor can help us to restore my sister’s elbow joints to return to their normal position. thank you
Good evening Novita, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are also sorry for your sister's condition. Dislocation is a condition when the tualng shifts and is not in its proper position. This condition is different from fractures where in this condition there are no damaged structures, so just move on. Dislocation can occur in any joint, be it shoulder, fingers, knees, hips and ankles.
The causes of this condition vary, but the point is there is a greater force than the joint's ability to survive, whether it's in the form of a collision or a pull. Triggers from this condition can be in the form of accidents, sports, heredity, or bone conditions in the elderly and children who have weak bones and joints.
Regarding your question, doctors who can and are competent in dealing with this condition are orthopedics / orthopedists and physiotherapists. Handling can be by trying to restore bone by pushing or using certain maneuvers, and if it has happened too often or is considered difficult, surgery can be done. To determine this, the doctor will do a history, physical examination and support such as X-rays and CT scans.
Meanwhile, ask your younger brother to rest his joints, may take over-the-counter pain relievers by reading the instructions for use, compress the joints with warm compresses, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
