What is femoral shaft fracture

First of all, the femoral shaft fracture will lead to people's movement is limited, and if not treated in time, there will be obvious inflammation, and even lead to necrosis of the femoral shaft.

In fact, manual reduction: in the treatment of fractures, manual reduction is the most widely used and safer. After reduction, we must carefully check the shape and length of the fracture of the affected limb to see if it has returned to normal. After proper and effective external fixation, X-ray fluoroscopy or radiography were performed to confirm the reduction results. If the reduction is not good, it should be corrected according to the need.

Finally, functional exercise: through the muscle contraction of the injured limb, increase the blood circulation of the tissues around the fracture, promote fracture healing, prevent muscle atrophy, through active or passive activities of the unfixed joints, prevent joint adhesion, joint capsule contracture, etc., so that the function of the injured limb can return to the normal state as soon as possible.
