Florida Hip Fracture Cases

Doctors almost always use x-rays to examine a pelvic fracture, and to determine the severity of the injury and whether or not surgery is necessary. A doctor may also order a computed tomography (CT) scan to look for other injuries commonly associated with a hip fracture. Treatment may consist of:

Nonsurgical Treatment - Rest: Avulsion fractures typically will heal within 6-8 weeks with rest and limited mobility. A doctor may order crutches or a walker, and the patient will not be able to put all of his or her weight on both legs until healing is complete. With this type of treatment, a doctor may prescribe a blood thinner to reduce the risk of blood clots forming in the legs.

Surgical Treatment - Traction: In orthopedic surgery, skeletal traction is used to immobilize, position or align a fractured bone during the healing process. A metal pin or wire is inserted into the bone. Infection of the pin or wire tract is a possible complication of traction surgery.

Surgical Treatment - External Fixator: With external fixator surgery, pins are inserted below and above the fracture and secured to an external frame, a fixator. Installation of the external fixator is performed in an operating room under general anesthesia. Removal of the external frame can be done under no anesthesia.

Surgical Treatment - Plates & Screws: With acetabular fractures, plates and screws may be surgically inserted to reposition fractured bone fragments.

Even after healing, pain is common, as well as nerve damage, sexual dysfunction, impaired mobility, and other pulmonary complications, such as pneumonia. It may take months to regain muscle strength after a pelvic fracture. Healing may take longer in older and elderly individuals. Balancing exercises, deep tissue massage, Pilates and yoga may also facilitate healing months and years after a fracture. A knowledgeable Florida Personal Injury Attorney in the Hip Fracture Claims subject will assist you to successfully litigate these cases.
