Casts are the most common tool used to help a fracture heal. Today, casts are made of many different types of material, including the traditional plaster variety, as well as modern materials like fiberglass. The purpose of a cast is to eliminate or reduce motions that could worsen the fracture while it is healing.
If you are wearing a cast that seems too tight or unbearably uncomfortable, consult your doctor immediately. Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is a serious condition that may arise from an improperly monitored or applied cast.
When a cast comes off, it often leaves behind dry and peeling skin. The muscles in that area may appear visibly weaker, due to lack of use during the healing process. To rebuild muscle strength, seek medical advice on specific exercises that will strengthen the affected area without causing further injury to the healing bone.
Sometimes, injury victims need additional tools to help themselves get back on their feet after a bad fracture. Often people use a walking aide, like a cane, crutches, or possibly a walker. To be safe and effective, the walking aide must be the proper height and dimensions for the person using it. You should consult a physician before using one of these assistive devices, to find out the way to use it properly while recovering from injury.
If you or a loved one suffered a broken bone that may have been caused by the fault of another person or product, talk with an experienced Michigan personal injury lawyer. Please submit a simple, free and confidential legal consultation form today.
