Eighty old man doing a hundred push-ups blindly imitating easy fractures
Recently, it was reported that 81-year-old Li Guochuan from Fuzhou could do more than a hundred push-ups in 5 minutes.
Rope skipping, shuttlecock, badminton, and basketball are all grandma Li’s and all are self-taught.
Moreover, Grandma Li also invented a sport where she tandemed “tumbler roll”.
While we worship Li Li and milk, many middle-aged and elderly people are eager to try. Old Chinese medicine reminds you that osteoporosis in the elderly is widespread and fractures occur slightly, so don’t follow it blindly.
Middle-aged and elderly people are prone to fracture Fracture refers to the eventual and continuous discontinuity of the bone, which causes a partial or complete rupture of the bone due to trauma or internal injury.
Fractures are basically caused by accidental injuries, and accidents often occur in the fast-developing modern life.
It is not terrible to cause a fracture. First of all, you must correct your attitude. You must go to the hospital for an examination and reset the orthopedics. The current hospital medical equipment and surgery are still very advanced. Generally, the orthopedics are reset.
Fractures have a high incidence in middle-aged and elderly people, especially the elderly. Too many middle-aged and elderly people accidentally fell and stepped on, and femoral neck fractures occurred. The ribs were broken with a cough.
Why is it easy for middle-aged and elderly people to fracture?
It is caused by the following reasons: (1) The bones become brittle.
With age, the body’s ability to absorb and utilize proteins and calcium decreases. After 30 years of age, the rate of bone cell decomposition gradually exceeds the rate of bone cell synthesis, leaving the interior of the bones empty and the bones no longer as hard as when they were youngIt even becomes brittle, so it is prone to fractures.
(2) Tendon sclerosis.
After middle-aged and elderly, muscles, tendons, and other motor functions also decline, and the ability to move gradually declines, tendon sclerosis, poor elasticity and distortion, muscle atrophy, and poor coordination between muscles. During exercise, muscles, ligaments, and other effects on boneImbalanced forces can cause fractures.
(3) Self-protection of middle-aged and elderly people has decreased.
With the increase of age, the physical intelligence of middle-aged and elderly people deteriorates, the brain’s responsiveness to unexpected events deteriorates, and the ability to protect itself and maintain physical balance is significantly reduced.
They cannot easily cope with sudden posture changes and are prone to accidental fractures.
The adverse consequences of fractures on the elderly are certain.
As the saying goes, “It hurts my muscles for a hundred days.”
What are the common fractures in the elderly?
Common fractures in middle-aged and elderly people The common fractures in the elderly include distal radius fractures, intertrochanteric fractures, femoral neck fractures, lumbar vertebral compression fractures, and senile osteoporotic fractures.
In particular, when the elderly accidentally falls, their hands are supported by the ground, causing a fractured radius fracture. If the hip falls on the ground when they fall, the impact force of the lower limbs will cause the fracture of the collision portion; if they bend over and fall, they may fall.Causes thoracolumbar vertebrae fractures; other elderly people have serious bone calcium loss, and are prone to osteoporotic fractures such as compression fractures of the lumbar spine.
How to treat common fractures in the elderly?
First, ordinary fractures of distal radius fractures can be treated by manual reduction plus external fixation; severe comminuted fractures with obvious metastasis, fractures of the distal radius joint surface and fractures should be treated surgically.
Second, the hip fracture area is different, divided into femoral intertrochanteric fracture and femoral neck fracture. Non-surgical methods include bone traction or skin traction, but can replace the improvement of medical level, total hip replacement, half hip replacement, Hollow nails, PEN-A, DHS, locking plate and other surgical treatments have been widely used.
Surgical treatment of hip fractures in the elderly without surgical contraindications is the first choice to reduce bed time, restore limb movement as soon as possible, and reduce mortality and other complications.
Third, thoracolumbar vertebral compression fractures are caused by senile osteoporosis, so patients who cannot undergo surgery must be absolutely bedridden, family members must cooperate with appropriate functional exercises, and use anti-inflammatory analgesics to alleviate the pain of patients.Osteoporosis treatment is also needed.
The elderly without contraindications to surgery are treated with alternating pedicle screw internal fixation, percutaneous vertebroplasty, and percutaneous kyphoplasty.
As the saying goes, “Life is endless and you don’t stop exercising”, but you don’t exercise much when you are young. When you have already suffered from osteoporosis or getting older, you still have a good time when you exercise.
