Chronic Lower right back pain

0

Hello.My lower back has been in constant pain since late October 2003.
I have visited my Chiropractor 25 times from December 3, 2003 to April 15, 2004.
I have yet to feel any releif at all, even after the visit.
My right hip is noticabely bulging out & lying flat on stomach & flat on back is very painfull.
The Chiropractor in question simply places shocking pads (electrical impuls) for approx. 8-10 min every visit.I need to know what to do next. Being a fit & healthy 25 year old, I am concerned that there is other treatment needed to fix this extremely annoying back pain.

Miniscus repair and physical therapy

0

miniscus tear removed 5 days ago arthroscopically.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

reoccurring bruise after a broken ankle

0

I dislocated and broke my right ankle, requiring surgery with hardware 2 years ago – the hardware was removed one year ago. I have this reoccurring bruise(approx. every 4-5 months) on the front of my ankle(shin) just above the incision on the inside of the ankle, which only lasts for about 4-5 days. Other than always feeling like I have a permanent shin splint, with the pain sometimes running up to my knee, I don’t have any other problems with the ankle…no swelling etc. I physically can do everything I want with only mild discomfort, but this bruise has me wondering if something more serious isn’t going on or is this normal healing of this type of injury/surgery. A normal x-ray shows nothing unusual.
Thanks you for your time.

Morton’s Neuroma

I had surgery last May 2004 to remove a morton’s nueroma on my left foot. But 7 months later the pain is still there and getting worse. My Doctor told me he removed the nueruoma so is there a possibility of another nueroma that he missed? Is there a test that shows this?

toe pain

0

this is all so strange and i hardly know how to explain… i have been having the most horrible pain in my second toe on my left foot… it is a horrible pain – like someone just his my toe with a hammer.
in the beginning i thought it was caused by my shoe being too narrow but that is not the case… if comes on even when wearing sandals… the pain is not there all the time… perhaps for a couple of hours, then it goes away, and eventually comes back again.
it is so painful that one cannot imagine putting on a pair of shoes and it is very difficult to walk.
any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
thank you

retro-calcaneal bursitis?????

0

Hi.
Is retro-calcaneal bursitis and achilles tendinits, caused by each other. I am so confused. Apparently i have both, and i’ve done some searching and they keep coming up together but i can’t figure out why they are referred to as practically the same thing. Every site i go to says “achilles tendinits/retro-calcaneal bursitis” as if they are the exact same thing. What exactly is retro-calcaneal bursitis caused by? Also is pressing on the bursitis bad, my athletic therapist has been using manual techniques and pressing on it very hard, which is extremely painful. I never even knew i had pain in the bursa area untill she started pressing on it.

protruding floating ribs

0

My floating ribs on my left side protrude quite a bit from the others.
It is quite noticable if I am lying on my back, and makes lying on my stomach uncomfortable at times.
Primarily, does this indicate a problem? Either way however, is there something I can do to fix it?
