2. Icing the femur fracture is another home remedy.
Place the ice on the area where you’re feeling pain. By doing this, it will reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation. It doesn’t matter what you use when it comes to icing. You can use a plastic bag and place ice cubes in it or even a bag of frozen peas. Make sure that you place a towel over the area before placing the ice on the area. It will irritate the skin if you don’t.
This can be done several times a day for 10 to 15 minutes. It is a good idea to do this every hour, especially if the pain is intense. The area that you’re placing the ice will feel numb afterward. With a fracture, it’s not a good idea to use a heat pack, unless the doctor tells you to. This is a joint injury and it needs a cold therapy.
