Bone trauma is a very common phenomenon in every age group and most of the time it is easily treatable and doesn’t cause any trouble in future. Many a times broken bones do cause deformity and limited movements, but proper treatment can avoid this to a great extent
Our orthopaedic specialist, Dr. Suresh Bansal prefers treatment of fractures without operation unless the case is severe. Based on his expertise and experience, he shared the common ways which he has been following to treat fractures:
Affected bone is immobilised usually using plaster cast but sometimes splinting or sling may do the work instead of bulky plaster cast. It is important to decide the best for the patient whether to use a plaster cast or put it in a splint which allows patient to be more independent. Plaster casting also needs to be at appropriate position to allow better healing.
Reduction is required when bone fragments are displaced from its place before putting it into a plaster cast. Non-invasive reductions can be made by skilled orthopaedic doctors to achieve better bony alignments and reduce chances of deformity.
Traction is a technique used to treat fractures by applying distraction forces to stimulate bone tissue production. This technique is mainly used to treat paediatric lower limb fractures but is also developed to treat adult fractures. Different types of traction techniques are available for different fractures.
Fractures are uncomfortable but don’t harm much if treated properly. But if you get amateur treatment technique at the first stage, you might be left with deformities which require surgery. In some cases, it can even stick with you lifelong. Therefore, it is important to get your treatment done only by bone specialists.
