Diseases of the musculoskeletal system and injuries - treatment in Russia
Most often, damage to the musculoskeletal system occurs with road, domestic, industrial and sports injuries. The level and severity of damage depend on the mechanism of injury (characteristics of the traumatic effect on the human body).
Over the past decades, traumatology has undergone significant changes. Previously, the main methods of fracture treatment were plaster casts and skeletal traction. Today, various surgical techniques are widely used in traumatology.
The technique of osteosynthesis (fixation of fractures with intraosseous, extraosseous and transosseous structures) is constantly being improved. Osteosynthesis allows to shorten the treatment of fractures, avoid dangerous complications as a result of prolonged immobility (bedsores, pneumonia, thromboembolism) and prevent the development of contractures (limitation of joint mobility).
Modern technologies are actively used. The severed fingers are sutured using microsurgical methods. Joint operations are performed using endoscopic equipment. Joint replacement is developing (replacement of a destroyed or damaged joint with a biocompatible prosthesis).
The possibilities of traumatology are constantly expanding. However, recovery from trauma is still not possible without the active participation of the patient. During this period, it is very important to follow the doctor’s recommendations, develop joints, do therapeutic exercises, etc. Remember: the more time has passed since the injury, the more difficult it is to restore the lost function of muscles, bones and joints.
Along with modern surgical techniques, in the treatment of the musculoskeletal system and after injuries, he widely uses traditional conservative methods: massage, manual therapy, physiotherapy exercises and physiotherapy.
In the treatment of orthopedic diseases, as in the period of recovery from injuries, the patient’s attitude, his willingness to follow the doctor’s recommendations and make an active contribution to the process of his own recovery, is of great importance.
