Type Of Treatment Or Diagnosis Of Joint Dislocation?
Hello wr.wb. I want to ask, I fell in the middle of 2018, and experienced a drastic swelling in my ankle. And when it was diagnosed with a shift in the joint, and immediately brought it to a specialist to return the bone (massage), there were four times the handling of funds he said healed / normal, but one week after that I still felt pain and was not normal in walking until I decided to move to another place. Until now, it has been more than a year since I was able to walk normally even wearing hils shoes, but I just realized that the change in position of the joints did not return to normal, when walking he was as normal as normal, but when taken to sit and straighten it will look flat on the left side of the instep and not see the ankles, it feels after falling I also feel frequent cramps in the soles of my feet, can’t get wrong footing, and can’t be in a puddle / long-lasting taste. If for a long time it will cramp like being pulled and the fingertips between the thumb and forefinger stretch it can’t be near it right .. Well what action should I take next, the problem is I’m afraid to get back in order, because the road is not painful at all. Thank you
The first thing I must confirm is, the diagnosis of joint dislocation, you get from a doctor or massage therapist? In Indonesian society there are still many assumptions that broken bones or dislocated joints can be cured by massage or massage. What kind of treatment or action is taken by someone, of course is the right of that person. However, actually, it would be better if, before deciding to go to a massage therapist, consult first with your doctor. The doctor will probably take an x-ray. From the results of these photos, will be assessed whether joint dislocations or fractures occur. The severity of joint and bone damage can also be assessed by physical examination and X-rays. After that, the doctor will give advice on what types of actions can be done. Not all joint and bone problems require surgery. Sometimes with a splint or cast, the problem can be resolved. Massage without knowing what damage and how heavy the damage occurs, generally will not give optimal results. Damage can get worse, or healing can occur, but does not heal normally as before.
For this reason, consult this matter with an orthopedic doctor. The doctor will assess whether a dislocation of the joint has not fully healed or there may be other problems. Other possibilities can include muscle injury, ligament injury, tendon injury, or inflammation of the nerves. In the meantime, try to limit the activities that are too heavy. Stretch for your calf and leg muscles, especially after long standing or long walks.
Hopefully this answer can help you find a solution. Regards.
