    Mine did turn out to be frozen shoulder too. Confirm Password. The bone is still healing so you should take care for at least another month. If your injury causes swelling, you may need a splint until the swelling goes away. When the cast comes off you're ready to return to life as usual, but you find that you may still be having trouble.

    To minimise swelling, try the following: • rest with your leg up • put your leg on a pillow at night • apply an icepack. Wrap a bag of ice in a wet tea-towel and put this on your ankle for 15 minutes. Stiffness: It is important to try and get as much movement as possible in your ankle after the fracture has healed.Return to starting position.

    Swelling. The limb may swell for a few months after the cast has been removed. Lower limb fractures (thigh and shin) can cause a limp for three to six.Yes, if it was put for sprain or fracture or after surgery.

    Swelling will go away in few days. To reduce swelling keep the leg in elevated position for 15 to30 minutes after walking. Do hot fermentation.Keep your fingers moving though - flex them several times a day - making a fist and then stretching them out.

    They also reduce pain, swelling, and muscle spasm. In some cases, splints and casts are applied following surgery. Splints or "half-casts" provide less.This is accomplished through compensating with the other hand, by moving other parts more, or by getting help from family or friends.

    Casts and splints relieve some pain and reduce swelling, too. pain should become less severe each day after getting your cast or splint.Remove the sling three to four times each day to perform shoulder and elbow range-of-motion exercises to help prevent excessive stiffness and loss of function, as directed by your occupational or physical therapist.

    I think elevating is a good idea, when I let it swing freely in the early weeks it made the swelling much worse. Now it doesn't seem to matter.Casts are custom-made with fiberglass or plaster.
