A bone fracture occurs when a strong external force is applied on the bones causing it to break. It is an extremely painful condition that results in days of immobility and rest.
There are several reasons which can result in bone fracture, some of them being:
- Injuries caused in sports: Any sport requires and demands extreme physical exertion and participation. Being involved in any sport therefore automatically increases your risk of incurring injuries. Bone ractures therefore are mostly reported during sports.
- Osteoporosis: Due to the deficiency of calcium, the bones of both men and women tend to get weak and more susceptible to fracture and breakage. It is one of the primary causes that lead to bone fracture.
- Osteomalacia: This also refers to a condition wherein the bones become weak and brittle. Much like osteoporosis, osteomalacia too significantly contributes to instances of bone fractures.
- Osteosarcoma: This is a rare form of bone cancer that most often develops either near the femur or near the shinbone. An instance of this form of bone cancer is most often found in children and weakens the bone, consequently leading to fractures.
Though there may be different causes of broken fractures, its symptoms remain similar. Some of them are:
- Swelling: One of the most common symptoms of bone fracture is perceptible swelling. If any of your bone is fractured, that particular part will be visibly swollen.
- Deformity: Bones give your body the shape it has, thereby, any fracture anywhere would inevitably manifest itself as a clear deformity of that particular part.
- Extreme pain: It goes without saying that a bone fracture would entail excruciating and extreme pain. This pain sharply increases with mobility thereby necessitating complete rest.
- Temporary loss of function: The part of the body where the bone is broken temporarily becomes dysfunctional. For instance, if the bone in your hand is broken, you will find it extremely difficult to move and do any work with it.
I have leg calf pain .one mont over it is paining. .when I am standing or walking that time paining. Is it nerve problem.
Pain is inevitable after the plaster is removed from the location of the broken wrists. Since the wrist hasn’t moved for well over a couple of weeks, the hand might feel vulnerable to perform routine tasks. Along with the prescribed medication, physiotherapy is mighty effective in healing the wrist and getting the old balance back. The process of physiotherapy should be typically started when the pain diminishes and the Doctor gives his go-ahead for the same.
What are the benefits?
This is primarily done to get back the muscle strength. Physiotherapy also helps in gaining mobility and function of the wrist that has been affected because of the injury. While therapy does not heal the fracture, they ensure bones of the wrist get denser and stronger. This ensures that future injuries are effectively prevented.
Flexion: This is the process of bending the wrist in the forward direction and holding the posture for 5 seconds. 3 sets of 10 flexions should be done in one session.
Extension: This is the opposite of flexion. In this exercise, the wrist should bend backwards and 3 sets of 10 extensions should be performed in each session.
Side Movement: The wrist should be moved sideways much like the motion performed during a handshake. Each movement should last for 5 seconds and 3 sets of 10 such movements should be performed in each session.
Wrist Stretch: This is the process of bending the wrist with the help of the other hand. The next process is to stretch the fingers backwards with the help of the other hand. This posture should be held for 15 seconds and 3 sets should be performed.
Wrist Extension: This is an exercise where the body weight is placed on the wrist by keeping the palms down and legs straight. This exercise should be repeated thrice each lasting for 15 seconds.
Grip Strengthening: A soft rubber ball should be kept in the palm and squeezed for 5 seconds. This activity should be done 15 times twice.
Wrist Supination: This exercise involves the flipping of the forearm up and down for 5 seconds each. It can be done in sets of 10 each.
Once a person gets comfortable with the stretching exercises, the same exercises can be done with some weight in hand to further strengthen the muscles. Isometric exercises can also be practised. This is beneficial since they do not involve muscle contraction. A mix of all these exercises will help to mobilise the wrist. Apart from these exercises, certain other activities such as swimming, driving and cycling can be practised to ensure speedy recovery of the artist. At any point of time, a physiotherapist should be consulted before taking up any new exercise or activity that involves the wrist.
