In occasion of an edema as the doctor phlebologist I can to youadvise to do a duplex scan of veins. Often the pathology of the vessels interferes with the recovery of the leg after trauma. And on all other questions the doctor of the traumatologist will answer more qualitatively. Muscles require therapeutic exercise and massages. But they can be recommended only with the exclusion of deep vein thrombosis.
