Swelling called congestion watery fluid in the body tissues, resulting in this place swells.
Swelling of the legs after the fracture is normal, as a result of injuries disrupted the general circulation and the natural lymphatic drainage.
Causes of leg edema fracture
Continuous liquid communication between the tissue andIt occurs through blood capillaries (small blood vessels). Liquids surrounding tissue through the blood vessel wall called "extravasation". If vessels from surrounding tissue to produce high concentrations of the liquid and its opposite suction hampered or stopped, swelling occurs. The reason for the reverse suction of fluid in the blood are damaged ligaments, muscles and other tissues, violation of their normal functioning as a result of fractures. Most often the site of fracture in the swelling does not occur immediately, it is rising and extends only in the region of the damaged portion. When intra-articular, comminuted fractures of legs, injuries with displacement tumor can also spread to the entire limb. Such injuries are accompanied by loss of tissue sensitivity, sharp restrictions of movements, painful sensations.
Swelling is always accompanied by pain at the fracture site, change in skin color.
In some cases, the rehabilitationpatient after removal of the plaster foot swelling is observed. This phenomenon is called "lymphostasis". It is caused by an imbalance of education and its lymph drainage. Limfostazom can be observed with a broken leg, if the injury is accompanied by damage to blood vessels and lymph nodes. Besides sealing tissue, in this case also observed skin thickening. Lymphoedema can result in a number of complications (ulcers, elephantiasis, fibrosis, cystic). The leg swells after fracture, and after receiving serious injuries utmost gravity. These fractures can be open, they are accompanied by a stretching of ligaments or damage. As a result of damage to the joints swell, edema are of particular value.
Failure to comply with the doctor's recommendations swelling persists after bone fusion.
How to eliminate leg edema fracture
Swelling of the legs after the fracture is eliminated by variousprocedures and drugs. The patient is prescribed ointments and gels that improve blood flow and lymph flow (geparinosoderzhaschie drugs ketoprofenosoderzhaschie agents, anti-inflammatory drugs). Will be useful physiotherapy (UV irradiation, electrophoresis, electrostimulation). To remove the swelling of feet, you can use the recipes of traditional medicine. For example, you can rub in place swollen oil of cedar, fir or calendula tincture, wormwood, arnica, make compresses of clay.
