In elderly people, bone resorption processes predominate over the processes of its synthesis, so patients with a cervical fracture have much less chance of full and natural bone splice.
Despite the severity of the injury, patients can rely on the restoration of motor abilities. Some of the doctors recommend the endoprosthetics of the hip joint.
Most often, taking into account the general condition of the patient's health and the inability to carry out the operation, they are given a set of rehabilitation measures that help improve the processes of bone tissue regeneration and prevent complications that may arise as a result of a sedentary lifestyle after a breakthrough - trophic disorders in soft tissues, Development of muscle atrophy, thrombophlebitis, etc.

Physiotherapy in many cases can reduce pain, improve blood supply and innervations in the diseased limb, and prevent the development of complications.
Of great importance for patients with a hip fracture is the support of the relatives, as successful treatment with restoration of motor activity is possible only with positive mood of the patient.
As a rule, patients with a femoral neck fracture suffer not only from pain, but also from forced hypodynamia, from limitation of contacts with the surrounding world. The first time the patient is in absolute dependence on caring for him people.
