Fracture and Dislocation

Fracture and Dislocation

Bone fractures usually occur after trauma in young patients, but are usually due to bone resorption for older patients. Bone fractures are generally easier to treat in younger patients, while fractures may be life-threatening for patients over 65 years of age. There are two different types of bone fractures, closed fractures and open fractures.

Fracture Symptoms

  • Swelling formation,
  • Ecchymosis due to bleeding under the skin,
  • Deformations,
  • Severe pain during movement

How is fracture treatment performed?

Fracture treatment may vary depending on the age of the patient, the area where the fracture occurs and the severity of the fracture. Fracture treatment can be done with plaster or different treatment methods can be applied by the doctor depending on the condition of the patient and the fracture.

Dislocation Causes and Symptoms

Dislocation may occur due to trauma, bone resorption, sudden and reverse movements. However, dislocations in the body may also develop due to congenital causes or chronic diseases.
Dislocation Symptoms

  • Severe pain,
  • Movement limitation,
  • Pain and strain during movement,
  • Bruising in the area where dislocation occurs

How is dislocation treatment performed?

Different methods can be used for the treatment of dislocation, depending on the age of the patient and the location of the dislocation. In cases where dislocation is harmful to joint health, surgical intervention is necessary. Dislocation treatment should be performed correctly to prevent damage to the ligaments and nerves in the joint.
