If Xrays are negative for fracture
, the swelling and pain are results of muscle/soft tissue
The following measures will benefit you and help you in early recovery:
- Continue icing and avoid using the affected limb for any physical activity.
- Perhaps immobilizing the affected region might be useful.
- Use antiinflammatory drugs. Over the counter medications such as ibuprofen
400mg twice a day after food for a week can be tried. Alternative take a prescription from your doctor containing stronger non steroidal antinflammatory drug such as diclofenac
with muscle relaxant
- Avoid massage / manipulating the affected region. You may apply a thin film of topical analgesics such as volini gel/spray.
You should be able to recover well in a week's time.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
