Ulna And Radius Fracture In Children
I've removed kwires from my healed ulna and radius fracture and i would like to know when will i get full motion of wrist and when will it be stronger?
Much depends upon th: E extent of injury, residual deformity, tissue factors , general health etc, but assumong good health and adequate alignment for a n injury that was treatable with expectant decent results it typically is a 3-4 month procress from injury to feeling more normal but subtle things can linger for months later. Despite returning to full activity long before that. Note this is a very general answer. ...Read moreGet help now ›
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more
Supination rotation: of the forearm to place the palm up often is diminished even with simple fractures that are casted because when one sits in a cast they tend to hold the forearm pronated when elevating, and for fractures that typically displace, slight pronation and flexion is the preferred casted position. Therapy is the first line of rx., encouraging motion , and doing exercises often helps to start ...Read moreGet help now ›

Radius fracture for 10 days pass then do reduction, can the pulling cause the fracture from intra-articular become Comminuted?after pull seems worst?
Reducing fracture: does not add to comminution. It may make the comminution seem more apparent as the fracture is lined up. At times initial X-rays may not reflect all the comminution either as the rotation in the initial trauma views may not be as ideal for visualizing the joint or the fragmentation. Often with treatment more specific cray are taken. THE traumatic event far exceeds the force of a reduction maneuver ...Read moreGet help now ›
How long should I expect to be out of work? I went to the ER sun and was told that both my wrists are broken 1 with radical styloid fractured potentially scaphoid fracture, the otherdistal radius fracture. I work in customer service field on the computer
For : For either one of these injuries alone, you could be expected to do computer work within a week or so, though a bit slower than your usual pace. However, with both wrists broken, it becomes much more difficult. Basic hygeine and eating can be difficult if both wrists are in casts. A radial styloid fracture, in and of itself, is not usually problematic and heals in about 6 weeks. However, it can be a marker for a more severe injury to the scapolunate ligament--part of the cornerstone of the wrist. You need to see a hand surgeon to determine if there is significant ligament instability. Sometimes the portion of the fracture that goes through the joint shifts and needs to be fixed surgically. Either of these situation would prolong the healing time. If there is indeed a scaphoid fracture, that wrist could be limited much longer, sometimes up to a year. The distal radius fracture depends on the fracture pattern. Most of these do not involve the joint, but can tip backwards and distort wrist mechanics. If it displaces, it may require surgery. Unfortunately, these can move at 2-3 weeks after injury. In short, your recovery time depends on the "personality" of the fractures and any associated injuries. If all goes especially well, you might be out of casts by 6 weeks, but there are a lot of other factors. ...Read moreGet help now ›

Tendons to the thumb: cross over the radius and can be irritated and painful when there is a distal radius fracture. the thumb tendon that raises the thumb can be prone to rupture also. the thumb muscle that flexes the tip originates on the radius and surgery can disturb it transiently.
