Torn Miniscus Physical Therapy

0

I tore my miniscus when I was a senior in high school.
It has been four years now and my knee will hurt sometimes and it is very weak.
I can’t even run for very long because it causes a dull pain in my knee.
I was wondering if you had any exercises that I could do to strengthen my knee.
Will it ever be the same or at least close?
Will I ever be able to run and jump normally again?

Is it true wearing a ankle brace can cause atrophy in the future?

? boxer fracture

0

my 10 year old son (who has a bad temper) got angry and punched the stairs. He immediately had pain and swelling of the top of the hand by the little finger knuckle. We iced and elevated and did motrin for the nigh(happened Sunday afternoon) and debated on a trip to the ER. Decided to wait and see his doc in the morning. Took him in this morning and wa told it was a soft tissue injury to the hand. No xray. My question is , after it was wrapped with an ace bandage his pain increased alot, the swelling has gone down quite a bit but you cannot see his 4th or 5th knuckles and parts of the hand are purple. Her reason for not xraying was that he could move his fingers somewhat. Can you have a boxer fracture and still be able to move the finger? He is in more pain now, 24 hours later and less swelling than he was when he first did it. Should I insist on an xray?

crushed toes not healing

0

I crushed my toes over four months ago and they are not healing.
I have been in a post-op shoe and in a cam walker and my toes are still broken.
I was diagnosed with RSD and have been to PT for the last month and a half.
I constantly am stubbing the broken toes and rebreaking them.
Is there any type of cast or shoe that I can wear to help my toes to heal?
The 1st toe on my left foot is broken at the tip and my second toe was almost cut off from the nail bed up and the toe is crushed from the nail bed up.
The second toe has never showed any signs of healing throw 5 xrays.

Knee Pain

0

I have been running for about a year now.
I have custom orthotics and I have run 4 marathons in the past 6 months.
The last marathon was 2 weeks ago and I had serious knee pain in my left knee for the last 8 miles.
Most of the race (point to point) on a canted road surface.For several days after the race I have had knee pain (worse when walking down stairs).
I have tried 3 times to run in the past 2 weeks and each time (about 3-5 miles each) I have experienced the same knee pain.
The most amount of days off has been 4.
I now have not run for 4 days and my knee feels fine as long as I am not running.
Help, I really miss running.
Thanks

Fractured tarsal bone

0

I saw a podiatrist who took an xray of my right foot for pain at the ball under my big toe. He saw that the one of the 2 bony “lumps” (don’t know what they’re called) on the bottom of my 1st tarsal bone was broken in two (right behind the big toe). He told me it would heal in 6 weeks and not to exercise (stress fracture). I had been having terrible back pain from walking out of alignment to avoid the area. I called him back and asked how it would heal if I’m walking on it and he said it could take “months” and gave me an Aircasat to be “aggressive” with it. The aircast has me walking more inbalanced and hurts my back worse. He warned me poor healing could form a bone spur. My question is do I really need the aircast and if I suffer through just walking with a limp, how long will it really take to heal? Is there anything I can do otherwise to speed healing?

Broken bone

0

I have a cracked bone in my foot( the bone that runs along the second toe up) as well as several torn ligaments in the bottom of my foot.
I was misdiagnosed at first so I was just recently put into an aircast.Can you tell me in your opinion if being in an aircast is enough to heal a cracked bone and ligaments. My podiatrist is saying healing time is 3 weeks….as happy as that made me it does seem rather quick….your opinion would be greatly appreciated

teninitus-left knee

0

I recently ran a marathon and think I have tendinitus in my left knee. During and after the run I experienced severe pain just below my knee cap. It feels okay until I start running or do intense physical activity. Do you have any ideas for physical therapy I can do to build up the muscles around my knee? Thanks! Ann
