- What are the symptoms?
- The most common symptoms are swelling, sensitivity at the injury site, and inability to move. Apart from these, bruising, strangely protruding bone, numbness and needle sticking and bleeding also indicate orthopedic trauma.
- What are the diagnostic methods?
- The story of the patient and physical examination constitute the first step of trauma surgery. In emergency situations, it is not always possible to learn the patient's history. Ultrasound, MRI, computed tomography, radiography are imaging techniques that help diagnose.
- Plastering, physical therapy and rehabilitation and, in more severe cases, surgery is the form of treatment.
