Drove a leg in plaster what to do
Usually fracture of bones occurs when unsuccessfulfall, bruises, after which the swelling of the tissues begins. This pathology can correct ointment from edema after fracture, as there is a violation of outflow and inflow of interstitial fluid.
Usually swelling of tissues after fractures does not cause pain syndromes, but there is a certain stiffness of the muscles, and with fractures of the leg, rapid fatigue can develop.
It should be noted that edema can cause quite a lot of complications: fibrosis, ulcers of various etiologies, cystosis, as well as elephantiasis.
Essential Ointments for the Removal of Edema
To prevent complications that cause swelling, you can use ointment from swelling after a fracture. Also used are various creams, gels that help improve blood flow and biocurrents.
Often when swelling is used ointment, whichcontains heparin, and ketoprofeno-containing and anti-inflammatory substances. This ointment quickly enough normalizes metabolic processes, enhances lymphatic exchange and blood flow, which helps reduce edema.
Ihtiol ointment is also used, it improves the outflow of lymph and blood flow, heats the tissues. This ointment is applied to problem areas more than three times a day and rubbed until it is completely absorbed.
You can apply after fracture warming ointments, such as nicofleks and finalgon, and cooling (lyoton-1000 and troxevasin). These ointments can lubricate edema at least twice a day.
The main causes of edema after fracture
Edema occurs when fluid is accumulated in tissues,and this can be considered the norm, due to the fact that in fractures, the natural circulation of lymph and the total blood flow are disturbed, which leads to the accumulation of lymph in the intercellular space.
Such pathologies lead to a disruption in blood metabolismand the lymphatic fluid through the capillaries, as a result of which it enters, through the walls of the blood vessels, into the surrounding tissue, causing transudation, since the reverse absorption is disturbed.
All edema, after fractures, begin to developgradually, especially in those places where the fractures are located, but then the tumor spreads to the entire limb. It can develop in one to two days, and in a few years, so before applying the gypsum it is necessary to make an X-ray photograph.
The place where the tumor is located, significantlyloses sensitivity, changes the color of the skin, swelling restricts movement, causes painful sensations. If the swelling does not succeed in getting rid of it in time, it leads to the development of cosmetic defects.
When a person removes plaster, it may remainedema or lymphostasis, as the outflow and inflow of lymph are disturbed. Especially often this phenomenon can be observed after fracture of the leg. In this case, ligaments, blood vessels and lymph nodes are damaged.
The causes of edema after gypsum are insufficient joint development, when the limb is in gypsum, which leads to muscle atrophy, impaired circulation and decreased circulation of lymph.
Quite often, edema develops with traumalymphatic duct, due to improper application of gypsum or bandage. If there is no timely treatment of edema, bone loss may occur. This phenomenon occurs because of a violation of the outflow of lymph and blood, so the bone tissue does not receive enough nutrients and oxygen, which leads to such severe pathologies.
When the leg is in a cast, you needto carry out certain preventive actions, which are aimed at preventing the development of edema or its increase. Therefore, the gummy part of the body in case of a fracture, in this case the leg, should be kept in a horizontal position or on a slight elevation, but in no case should one rely on it not only when walking, but also when the person stands still.
After the cast is removed, no need to rely onon the foot until full recovery, it is necessary to disperse the liquid and with the help of the massage not to let it stagnate, which leads to a rapid enrichment of the muscles with the necessary nutrients, but do not give loads and avoid sudden movements.
When a person has a fracture, he should immediatelythink about prevention, which consists in the rapid and proper application of gypsum or a fixative bandage. Therefore, an elastic bandage that can be wound over the gypsum helps, it improves the fixation, but it must be done carefully, so as not to disturb the blood flow and quickly remove the swelling.
Reduction of edema after fracture
After fracture and removal of gypsum, the person remainsedema. Although such a swelling is a normal phenomenon after the removal of gypsum, it must be removed. Quite often they resort to muscle electrical stimulation, massage, physiotherapy, water procedures, ointments, physiotherapy exercises.
Treat edema with caution.
Removal of edema with electrical stimulationis to restore blood flow with the use of special impulse currents, in this case, there is a rapid recovery of sensitive tissue sections and increased muscle contraction after fracture. This leads to an increase in their tone, the neuromuscular apparatus is normalized, which leads to an increase in blood flow due to an increase in the venous blood channel, which nourishes the muscles and nerves. Also, the vessels expand due to the temperature from the electrodes. This leads to an increase in the permeability of the vascular walls, all reserve capillaries begin to open.
During electrostimulation, a reflexthe effect on the walls of the vessels, which leads to the release of biologically active substances such as adrenaline, acetylcholine, histamine and others, which increase the removal of edema, remove metabolic products, regenerate damaged tissue by activating the process of the synthesis of nucleic acids.
Usually, electrophoresis is followed by paraffin masks, electrostimulation after massage, and ultrasound after paraffin.
To increase the protective properties of the body and in the winter to increase the level of vitamin D in the body of the patient, you should conduct ultraviolet irradiation.
Every person who has swelling afterfracture and removal of gypsum, must undergo physiotherapy or massage. Well hydromassage, sauna and baths helps, but do not forget about elastic bandages or compression jersey.
To remove the edema, we use baths with sea salt, magnetotherapy sessions, warming compresses with wax.
Folk methods of treatment of edema after fractures
To quickly and qualitatively eliminate edemaafter fractures, you can use a decoction of fir branches and use this broth to make baths, after which fir is taken a little and they rub all the swollen places.
As a compress, you can use the infusion of the root of the comfrey. Quite well eliminates the edema of herbs from arnica and homeopathic ointment Arnica.
To remove swelling, use raw grated potatoes, which are well squeezed, and then applied to the swelling, and the top wrap with cellophane and a warm kerchief.
You can use diuretic herbs, such as a bearberry leaf and cranberries, which increase urination, which leads to a reduction in edema.
In folk medicine for the removal of swelling afterfracture is used incense. It is kneaded with rye flour with the addition of egg whites and infusion of the root of the animal. This mushy mass can be applied to the problem site, which leads to a reduction in edema.
It helps to eliminate all stagnant phenomena in edema infusion of comfrey grass, which should be taken internally.
All these recipes of traditional medicine can be combined with the appointment of a doctor, and a person will quickly get rid of swelling without any consequences.
