Could you please tell me the difference between a podiatrist and a chiropodist. Are they just two different names for the same thing? There are is only 1 podiatrist in my city and the rest are all chiropodists or foot specialists. Is there a difference?

Heel Pain

0

I have had what I’ve heard call a “seed wart” on the my heel.
I looked this term up and I’m under the impression that this type of wart sticks out.
Mine is flat on the bottom of my foot.
There is a little black dot in the center and it is painful sometimes when walking.
Is this an actual seed wart, or is it something else?
How would I treat this?

hip problem

0

My hips are uneven causing my right leg to appear longer. This tends to cause extreme tightness in my inner right thigh as well as pain on the inside of my right knee and occasionally on the outside of my left hip.
Is it possible for me to fix my hip alignment by exercising and retraining muscles.
I have been going to a chiropractor and physical therepist on and off for years but nothing works.
I run a lot of miles and it is really starting to effect my ability to do long runs.
What sort of spesensoredt besides the two I have mentioned may be able to tell me exactly what is going on?

I injuried my knee a year ago and when I went to the doctors then they said it was an inflammed tendon however i still have pain in my knee often and it “pops” 3 times every time I bend it. Do you have any idea what this could be and what I could do to fix my kneeThanks

Is it safe for me to Belly Dance?

0

I had an MRI done for severe back pain.
It shows Disc desiccation at L5-S1 and L4-5 with mild loss of dsc height at L5-S1. Disc protrusion at L5-S1 impinging on S1 nerve root. At L4-5, I have mild spinal canal stenosis and mild left neural formainal narrowing with no definitive impingement on a nerve.
I really love to Belly Dance for fitness.
My question is, Will belly dancing be beneficial or aggravating for my back? (It involves back, abdominal, hip, sensored, thigh, and arm strengthening, occasional twisting, with use of abdominal muscles, swiveling the hips.)I would LOVE some insight!!

Miniscus repair and physical therapy

0

I had arthroscopic surgery on my left knee 4 1/2 weeks ago.
The doctor repaired the miniscus with darts.
I have done everything doc said to do : No weight bearing, kept it in the cast / Ice / raised above heart etc…
I now have permission to put 50lbs of weight on the leg and to start trying to get some movement back — Some progress but the knee and above the knee are extremely stiff. Almost 5 weeks now.
How hard do I push the knee for movement.
How long will this take to get back in shape? Any suggestions?
Is this where the real pain starts with thearapy? Anyone that has gone through this — would love some feedback from you — Thanks in advance

i was dragged by a minivan the end of nov 2004. i required 7 staples in my head. i had ct scans done from head to pelvis nothing was found. i had pain for months which has let up now. However, when i sneeze, my back feels like it has no give at all, like it should be more flexible than it is.

stiffness in pelvic region

0

I have had increasing stiffness in my pelvic region.
It has gotten so bad I have a hard time lifting my legs very high.
I can not spread them very much either.
I have always been very athletic and this is causing me a lot of problems.
Three years ago I had a broken tibeia and that is the only health problem I have every had.
I am late middle age.
Hope some one has an idea what it could be.
