I drive a bus for elderly and handicapped people. Recently, I’ve had a pain in my lower right hip and it goes down my right leg.
Is there any exercises I can do, should I go to a chiropractor? Any help would be appreciated.

recovery post L total ankle arthroplasty

0

I had L total ankle arthroplasty (“ankle joint replacement”)7 weeks ago and have just been advanced to partial weight bearing (30-35 lbs). My entire L foot is stiff – not just the ankle joint as it was preop. I’m so discouraged with my lack of range of motion and flexibility. Has anyone out there had experience with recovery from this particular surgery? I’m regretting my decision to have this ELECTIVE procedure…..

pain in feet, thumbs, shoulder and one elbow

0

the burning pain started in my feet.
I went to the dr. who thought that I had Morton’s Nueroma. He put me on Mobic.
Since then,(late Jan) my hands have given me so much pain. My job is very physical.
In the mornings it is hard to walk,it is hard to use my hands.
I also am having pain in one shoulder, to the extent that it wakes me up when I roll over.
I do have a podiatrist appt in a couple of weeks-my question to you is “Could all of this be related?”I am 46 and have always been very active.

Heel and back pain

0

I’ve been suffering heel pain for a couple of years on the lateral plantar aspect of my left foot after jumping from a roof.
Also, intermitent sharp pain on the right posterior side of my neck Can you explain how orthotics may be used for the symptoms that I’ve outlined above (as i noticed that many Podiatrists advertise that orthotics can minimise neck pain).

Some people say that if you pop your joints, you will have problems when your older.
Is this true?

Anyone else had a shattered heel before???

0

I was in a car accident in October of 2004 and I shattered my heel and broke my femur. I now have a metal rod in my leg and 7 or so screws in my heel.
Well my heel did not heal as well as the doctor would have liked, the bone had actually shifted to the right a little, so I had to undergo surgery again.
I am now off my foot for another 6 weeks.
My pain level really isn’t that bad, and even when I started to walk last time around my heel never hurt, it was really just my ankle.
I guess because I hadn’t used my muscles in so long is why it hurt.
I was just wondering if anyone else has gone through almost the same thing, and if they were able to get full motion back?
My doctor said the side to side might be difficult to get back completely.
I am 22 years old and I am now worried that I will limping for the rest of my life.
