Do you have any question?
There are many questions about the problems of the locomotor system and its injuries and diseases. Many of these questions are common among people. In this section, we try to answer the common questions that may arise for anyone.
What can I do to prevent my clavicle from breaking?
Crack fractures are usually treated non-surgically and often heal. The fracture is expected to heal after six months. Non-healing fractures of the clavicle are not common.
The decision to choose the type of treatment for cavernous osteoporosis varies depending on the patient's symptoms. In most cases, this rash does not cause any problems for the patient and can only be seen on the radiograph. In these cases, there is no need to treat it. If the non-healing of this bone causes pain or reduced shoulder strength, surgical treatment may be needed.
If surgery is needed, this is done by fixing the area of the plaque and not possibly using a bone graft.
Failure to weld the clavicle bone, even if left untreated, does not cause complications in the elderly. A possible problem with untreated acne, as mentioned, is possible pain and a slight decrease in shoulder strength, which can be treated if the patient is not bothered too much.
What is the care after heel fracture surgery?
Heel fractures usually heal well but may heal poorly. Because the heel bone or calcaneus is made of spongy bone, the patient usually has no problem with the fracture not healing, but because the fracture is difficult to remove, some patients have problems with the fracture.
After heel surgery, the risk of swelling of the foot is high, so the patient should lie down for a few days and keep his ankle one step above the level of the heart. This increases the return of venous blood to the heart and reduces swelling. Cooling the operation site and using anti-inflammatory drugs such as naproxen or celecoxib or piroxicam can also help reduce swelling and pain caused by the operation.
To cool, you can put ice cubes in a plastic bag and place it next to a thin towel and place it on the operation site.
The skin around the heel is very sensitive and may be damaged during surgery. When changing dressings that are performed daily from the surgical site, the patient or the person performing the dressing should carefully inspect the site of the surgical wound so that there is no problem such as blackening of the edges or excessive discharge. .
If screws and plates are used for surgery, the patient should begin his or her ankle movements with the permission of the surgeon after a few days of surgery so that there is no movement restriction in the patient's wrist and sub-joint.
I have severe pain due to wear and tear on the pelvic cavity. what should I do?
First of all, it is important to note that abrasion of the hip joint is not reversible. The most important cause of wear and tear and osteoarthritis of the hip is the destruction and damage of the cartilage of the joint, and unfortunately the cartilage is not able to repair itself. So instead of treating hip wear, you should talk more about managing the problems that result from it. As mentioned, the most important of these problems are pain and limited mobility. Of course, the shortness of the lower limbs and limbs can also be symptoms that follow the lateral joint of the rat and affect a person's life.
In cases where the disease is in its early stages and the severity of osteoarthritis and wear and tear has not yet increased, supportive measures may alleviate some of the patient's problems. The most important of these measures are:
Reduce physical activity
Avoid strenuous joint movements and bend and straighten it frequently
Taking anti-inflammatory drugs
What causes my ankle to sag?
The peroneal nerve can be damaged by paralysis of the sciatic nerve in the pelvic region, or by intervertebral disc herniation, or by diseases and tumors of the spinal cord and spine.
The orthopedist can assess the cause of the wrist drop using paraclinical examinations such as nerve tape and imaging, and perform appropriate treatment.
