Contraction Of Sinews
Source: Papers On Health
This often occurs at the knee, bending the
joint so that the patient cannot stretch his limb or walk properly. The
injury in such a case is usually at the ends of the sinews, where they
are inserted into the bone. If the limb be straightened and put up in
splints, so as to secure perfect rest, it is well to see that once
every twenty-four hours it be removed from its fastenings and treated
in some way to obtain a cure. Otherwise the whole limb will harden into
a straight and unbendable condition, worse than its original bend. When
the fastenings are removed, then, each day, let the limb be rubbed and
bathed for an hour. Treat the whole body with soaping and oil rubbing
(see Lather and Massage). While bathing the limb it is to be rubbed
with this soap, and the lather rubbed gently into all the skin. Rub,
after soaping and drying, with hot olive oil. Dry this off, and wrap
the limb in warm flannel. With this treatment no splints or plaster
jackets are at all likely to be required. The limb usually soon comes
Sometimes this contraction affects the hip joint, and causes great
distress and lameness. The upper end of the thigh bone is even
sometimes drawn a little out of its proper position. For this, the
muscles of the back, and specially of the side and hip which is lame,
are rubbed with gentle pressure and hot olive oil as often and as long
as may be convenient. Strong fomentations are also applied for
half-an-hour daily (see Armchair Fomentation). We know of one case in
which this treatment has cured such contraction both of the knee and
hip joint. Whether the cause be rheumatism or other trouble, or an
injury, the treatment is the same.
