my child suddenly fell 2 weeks ago and his feet were difficult to move. Now his legs can be moved but if the road seems weak, the leg muscles are weak. Roads can suddenly plunge and fall. I went to the pediatrician at that time and he said that there were no problems with the X-ray. My child is 11 years old.

Good evening, thanks for the question

A history of trauma due to falls is very likely also occur contusions or bruises in the deeper skin tissue, muscles, or even bones. Contusions of the skin are characterized by swelling, bruising, and pain, especially if given pressure. Whereas contusions in bones are characterized by stiffness, swelling, pain that lasts longer, or difficulty moving the affected area.

On imaging tests such as X-rays are generally not found abnormalities other than the presence of soft tissue swelling. The same thing might happen in the case above. The general symptoms will decrease along with the process of spontaneous tissue healing that occurs in about 2 weeks.

Another possible condition is sprain or sprains. Sprain occurs when ligaments (tissue that connects bone) experience excessive stretching or small tears.

Both contusions and strains can be treated at home including:

1. A compress of ice covered with a clean cloth for about 15 minutes and can be repeated every hour if needed.
2. Raise your leg higher than your chest to get the blood flowing to the heart.
3. Take over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol. Avoid using aspirin or ibuprofen to prevent bleeding from continuing.

Carry out further examination with a doctor if the complaint has not improved after more than 2 weeks.

That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
