Conservative treatment of a fracture can be carried out through:

  • immobilizationwhich consists of putting a gas or ferrule in the place of the fracture.

Physiotherapy after a fracture

The physiotherapeutic treatment for a fracture consists of returning the movement of the joint after removing the splint or ferrule. Physiotherapy should be carried out every day with the aim of increasing the range of joint movements and muscle strength gains.

After a complete recovery and compliance with the doctor’s instructions, regular physical activity and the consumption of foods rich in calcium are recommended, to guarantee the strengthening of the bones.

Surgical treatment for fractures is carried out in case of:

  • Intraarticular fracture, when the fracture occurs in the bone extremities that are inside the joint;
  • Continuous fracture, when the bone breaks into 3rd parts;
  • Exposed fracture, when the hueso excels from the skin.

The surgery will be carried out as soon as possible, later the person will remain unmoved for a few days. The sale will have to be changed, and in case the person finds himself with a plate and clavos, his retirement should be evaluated.

  • painkillers, such as Paracetamol to reduce pain;
  • Anti-inflammatories, such as sodium diclofenac, to control pain and inflammation;
  • Antibiotics, such as Cephalosporins, to prevent infections in case of an open fracture.
