on christmas i was running and i jammed all my toes on my left foot now my third metatarsal is offset and my big toe is numb. May this mean that i have broken one or more of the bones or done some nerve damage.
I had my back x ray the results shows that i haveLevoscoliosis, multiple subluxations, hyperlordosis, osteophytosis and disc pathology of the lumbar spine .What does it mean ?.Can this be curemedicine or I have to go chiropractor Thank You
What are the best treatment options?
For the past three weeks I have experienced pain across the top of my foot. I have not injured it in any way. The swelling is very obvious, however there is no visible bruising or any indication of injury except the pain and swelling. It has graduated from being annoying..to just dang painful (extreme pain and swelling at times) and it affects my ability to walk, causing pain in other areas. I cannot bend my foot (toes specifically) toward my body or away. At first the pain was only present when I walked. Now it hurts all the time.
Is this just a case of some muscle pain, and should I just grin and bear it until it goes away?Or could this be a sign of something more serious?
I very much dislike visiting the doctor…especially if they simply are going to say that it is just muscle pain and say “Take two of these and never call me again!”
I played basketball one day and the next day the bone under my pinky toe hurts bad. I have a small hole in between my little toe
I have been experiencing a pulling feeling in my shoulder blade… When I breathe it feels like my back/ shoulder area is separating… very uncomfortable. If anyone has similiar problems… Feel free to share your info.
my 11 yr old son was diagnosed as having sever’s disease by a sports medicine physician. the diagnosis was confirmed by an orthopedic surgeon. my son plays many sports, but predominantly baseball and basketball. the pain is not so great that he cannot play but after practices and games he has considerable discomfort. he won’t tolerate ice. i’ve put quality insoles in his shoes and they’ve provided some but not complete relief. his feet are still very small (size 4.5) and he’s yet to start any meaningful growth spurt. any suggestions to get him through what sounds like will be the next 2-3 yrs? i have better odds of winning the lottery than i do having him take some time off of sports to rest.
I am 22 years old and have a mild form on spastic Cerebral Palsy.
I recently have been diagnosed by my family doctor as developing “frozen ankles” and my right foot is becoming inverted. I was refered to physical therapy, who then refered me to a podiatrist to get splints to help keep my foot straight. He stated that I may need to have surgery done to release my heel cords. I was just wondering, will the splints help correct my feet from turning inward or do they just prevent it?
Also would you be able to describe how the surgery is performed and what the recovery period is? Thanks for the help!Holly
Several months ago, my doctor injected the bottom of my left foot with several cortizone shots to relieve pain from several plantar lesions(I had recently had surgery to remove a plantar lesion). In a short time, the numbness spread to the top of my foot, the toes, plus formed a “numb band” around my ankle, approx. three inches in vertical height. This condition causes me to walk on “numbness” occasionally fall (I sprained my ankle recently without knowing it until I noticed the swelling) and consistant swelling. Will this condition go away in the future, or do I need treatment such as medication or therapy? I am 67 years of age and am in good health.
I’ve just recently noticed that my hips are uneven causing my left leg to appear longer than my right.
This tends to cause tightness in my lower back and occasional sliding/popping of my sacrum. Could this be the cause of hyperextension in my left leg which also undergoes a lot of knee problems.
If so, is it possible for me to fix my hip alignment by exercising and retraining muscles and how?
