Treatment Knee Fracture

Request an appointment

    The muscles, joints and ligaments of legs get injured quite often, since they perform various functions of our body. Knee fracture is considered to be one of the most common and very dangerous injuries. According to statistics, a high number of broken knee traumas occur during intensive physical activity. The most common causes are severe blows to this part, for instance, a bent knee injury from the fall or a direct hit to the knee during sports or a traffic accident. Orthopedic center Touch of Health in Orlando offers services for the treatment of knee fracture including a knee repair surgery.

     

    How is a knee fracture treated?

    Bed rest is vital in case of a knee fracture, the injured joint needs as much rest as possible. In some cases, treating a knee fracture requires surgery. As a rule, the operation is carried out 3 or 4 days after the trauma. The doctor combines the bone fragments, and, if necessary, fastens them together. After the operation on a broken knee, the plaster cast is applied. The patient is allowed to stand on crutches after a week from the moment of surgery. A plaster cast is worn from 5 to 6 weeks, and then it is the time for special therapeutic exercises. They allow restoration of joint function and prevention of ligament and muscle atrophy.

    It should be noted that the treatment of knee fracture requires the participation of qualified and experienced orthopedic surgeons. Only in this case one can count on the full restoration of the limb functions. Specialists of the center Touch of Health often have to deal with consequences of incorrect treatment and correct mistakes made by doctors in other clinics. We strongly recommend that you contact our clinic for any health problems, it is never too late to book an appointment.
