Limiting Muscle Atrophy After Injury, What?

I had a motorbike accident, my right leg had a fracture, now it's been over 2 weeks, I see the injured leg is a bit smaller than the healing one. Does that mean muscle atrophy? How to overcome? (Bui Xuan Truong (Nghe An)

After 2 weeks of inactivity, the phenomenon of muscle atrophy has appeared that the sign of disease is smaller than the healing foot.
If the time is fixed, the longer the limb is injured, the greater the risk of muscle atrophy and the more pronounced signs, the smaller the leg may be.
Muscle atrophy is a phenomenon of muscle shrinking, muscle fiber quality decreases but the number of muscles does not change so muscle atrophy can be completely overcome by exercise.

Experts recommend that, when injured, patients should massage the blood more muscle or apply heat, soaking warm water in warm water to relax the blood vessels, help the muscles soften and move more easily.
If the injury must be fixed, the patient can still perform static muscle contraction by winding up the tendons several times a day and exercising as soon as possible according to the doctor's instructions.
In the letter, you said that the fracture has to be fixed, but it is not clear what method and how much, so it is difficult for us to give reasonable advocacy advice.
You should speak directly with your treating doctor or visit a rehabilitation specialist for specific motor guidance for each stage of recovery


Of course, during exercise, you need perseverance, pain, restoring joint movement, maintaining muscle strength to limit muscle atrophy and restore the mobility of the limb early.
