Perhaps many users of artificial limbs in Henan do not know that prolonged use of improper prostheses can cause some diseases, so you must pay attention to avoid inappropriate prostheses when using them, then generally they will cause those diseases, and you should ask for them How to deal with it? Let ’s take a look
1. Skin conflict injury in load bearing parts of stump
More common in the stump of the stump. The surface of the skin begins to turn red, and then there may be blisters and cuticles. Prolonged use of improper calf prostheses can cause bursa at the fibula head (because of prolonged exposure to the skin's conflict with the bone protrusion site to form a mass), when red, swollen, hot, and painful Called bursitis. This kind of problems should be based on prevention, pay attention to the skin damage of the residual limbs at any time, find out in time, find the cause in time, and solve it in time.
This type of problem is mostly caused by the improper bearing cavity of the stump, sometimes it may be caused by improper wearing, or it may be caused by the atrophy of the stump muscles and the bone protrusion is too significant. Generally, the artificial limb technician is required to adjust the receiving cavity to solve it.
A small number of amputees have epiphyses on the ends of the residual bones, which often cause some pain and skin conflict injuries, and require surgical resection for treatment.
2.Using common skin diseases of stump
Mostly because the residual limbs and prosthetic limbs are not cleaned and sanitary in the cavity, bacterial infections cause folliculitis or various molds cause skin ringworm. To prevent such problems, we should do a good job in cleaning residual limbs, socks, and cavity. If skin disease is found, the prosthesis should be stopped and treated in time.
3. Muscle atrophy of the stump and impaired blood flow
Some muscles of the stump no longer move after being severed, and often the prosthesis is compressed, so after a long period of use, the stump muscles will shrink more and more. Muscle atrophy can cause poor blood circulation in the stump, and cold and simple stump pain can cause stump pain and phantom limb pain. In order to prevent muscle atrophy, amputees should pay attention to the practice of phantom limb exercises.
Generally, amputees retain the sense of phantom limbs. During phantom limb exercises, thigh amputees can continue to stretch and bend their knees in their dreams. Each time they extend or flex their knees, they must continue to work for more than 10 seconds; Practice the dream of lifting your insteps and pushing your feet down.
In addition, calf amputees should pay attention to making every effort to adjust the stump bearing cavity to full load or full contact. For those who use a knee prosthesis and a lower leg prosthesis, they should also pay attention not to tie the central leash on the thigh too tightly to avoid affecting the blood flow of the residual limb.
