What is the plaster duration of boxers fracture and how to know if it is healing well?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Prognosis for these fractures is generally good, with total healing time not exceeding 12 weeks. The first two weeks will show significantly reduced overall swelling, with improvement in clenching ability showing up first. Ability to extend the fingers in all directions appears to improve more slowly.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I want to know your detailed clinical history as to the duration of these multiple joint pains, your relevant investigations, your treatment records till now. It helps me to better understand your condition and prescribe accordingly. Please also mention your co-morbid conditions and drug allergy. Due to multiple joint involvement, it is difficult to advise on management as treatment differs for different pathologies but in general, recommendations for you will be: - intensive exercises in presence of a physical therapist initially - adequate calcium and vitamin d intake as per requirement - gentle anti inflammatory medication like tab etoshine, or tab paracetamol whichever suits you can be taken - footwear modification, wearing soft well cushioned shoes for heel pain start with this treatment and we will see how you are progressing in next 2-3 weeks otherwise I will need blood investigations and also relevant x rays to advise do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Should I wear a knee brace to support my knee rather than undergo major surgery for ACL reconstruction?

Should I wear a knee brace to support my knee rather than undergo major surgery for ACL reconstruction?
It depends on your activity level and symptoms. If you have instability symptoms then you should be treated for it. If you are into professional sports then you should be treated aggressively. In any case it is advisable to try focussed physiotherapy for cal insufficiency. Knee brace is temporary.
