Tibia fracture is one of the common injuries to the lower limbs. Here’s how to recognize it, how to act and what are the treatments and recovery times.
Having a tibia fracture is never pleasant and it is certainly painful. What makes the difference is obviously the trauma that leads to the broken tibia and the extent of the problem.
It is in fact an injury that can be extremely disabling and that can prevent the carrying out of normal daily activities . So here’s what you need to know about it.
Types of fractures and methods of care
The fracture or rupture of the tibia usually depends on several factors. These include falls , road accidents, sports injuries, domestic and workplace accidents.
Depending on the exact point where the impact occurs and the type of accident, you may be faced with a microfracture of the tibia, an open fracture of the tibia or displaced fractures of the tibia and spur.
In all cases, the most common symptoms are intense and immediate pain, difficulty (or impossibility) in walking and possible swelling in the area where the trauma occurred.
Fracture of the tibia and fibula: healing times
Generally, after a fracture of this type, the first thing to do is to go to the doctor who will evaluate the tests to be done by opting between radiography, CT scan or magnetic resonance.
Once the extent of the problem is understood, the doctor will proceed with establishing an action plan which may be surgical or conservative. Which, of course, varies according to the situation.
Generally, if you opt for the conservative one, the limb is immobilized for a variable period of time and necessary to reconsolidate the part. In some cases, rehabilitation for fractured tibia or other points may be useful. In this way the recovery will be faster and less painful.
That said, when it comes to tibial fractures, recovery times are always relative. However, it can also take several months which can go from about four to six or even more. And all before returning to move and live normally.
