Introduction: Fractures are common joint injuries that can occur in any age group.
Case report: This case report is a presentation of a mechanical injury in a bicycle fall
where the fracture occurs on the head of the right radius in a male person aged 27 years.
The patient was admitted to the hospital with pain, swelling and loss of function of the
right hand. Reposition and operation were performed by placing osteosynthetic material
and plaster immobilization. An osteosynthetic material - a pin was inserted in order to
connect the radius with the ulna. The patient was treated with electrotherapy and
kinesiotherapy for two months. Electrotherapy with low frequency interference currents
and magnetic therapy was also applied. Kynesiotherapy with active and active assisted
exercises of moderate dose were used until the metal was removed. Physical therapy
continued to be used after the removal of the metal. In addition, the patient was treated
with electro-ultrasound in low doses of 0.3 w in cm2, and electrophoresis (EF) with
potassium iodide (KI), which is placed on a positive electrode and inserted in the skin
and subcutaneous tissue using galvanic current, thus stimulating the creation of callus.
The kinesiotherapy with active and active assisted exercises also continued to be used,
now with increased resistance. Exercises for strengthening the muscles by using a ball,
dumbbells, bands with different resistance were also introduced. The function returned to
normal in two months.
Conclusion: Physiotherapy, especially kinesiotherapy, is of great importance in restoring
the functional status of the patient.
