Treatment Of Pain Around The Shin Area?
want to go to a specialist. Can I ask what kind of doctor should I go to? And how much do you think it will cost?
Thanks for the question on HealthReplies.com
Pain around the shin area can occur due to trauma or injury, for example after being hit by a hard object. So in addition to pain, you will also get bruising in the area you hit. In addition to the impact, pain in the shin area is also often caused by excessive exercise.
Actually, there is no need to rush to consult a specialist unless there is indeed a fracture or a lump in the shin area that is getting bigger and bigger. So you should first consult with a general practitioner in your area to get a more detailed physical examination and if it is deemed necessary you will be referred to an orthopedic specialist or orthopedic surgeon. And for the cost will usually depend on the health facility where you do the treatment.
Meanwhile, some simple ways you can do to relieve pain are:
Rest Put ice cubes on the painful area for 20-30 minutes every 3 or 4 hours Take painkillers such as mefenamic acid or paracetamol Choose footwear or sports shoes that are right for your condition Go to a physical therapist (physiotherapy) for help overcome pain in your lower limbs That's all the information we can convey.
