I was jumping on a trampoline yesterday with my boyfriends brothers, and i flipped (involuntary) and landed on my head. this motion snapped my neck backwards, and caused EXCRUCIATING pain all through my neck and back. I layed flat for a while because it knocked the wind out of me, and my arms were tingling. After about 5 minutes, I got off the trampoline, and sat in a chair. While walking it felt as though something was pinching in my back. I went inside and layed down with a heating pad on my back, and fell asleep. This morning I woke up to find that my back pain was either gone or dulled by the horrible pain in my sturnum. When I breathe in too deeply, it hurts really bad. As it does when I cough, walk, or make any sudden movements. It is very hard for me to sit or lay down because of the pain. I have been searching online for anything about sternum pain, but all I can find is information about McNairs current sternum bruising. I dont know if I need to be going to a doctor, or if this would be like having a bruised rib, in that there is nothing you can really do except aviod any strenuos activity. I would appreciate any advice anyone can give me. Thank you.Ashlee
my duahgter is a dancer and we need to tape her foot when she returns from a distal fracture of her 5th metatarsal are there any special taping methods or exercises she can use
Hi,3 days ago my left knee cap became swollen, red, and sore to the touch. I can bend my leg at the knee just fine, but I cannot kneel down, as pressure makes the pain excruciating. Last night, I noticed that my right knee cap was redening and now it is in the same condition as the left. I am 26, and I have never had knee surgery. I hike everyday (about 3mi), twice a week I hike more about 5 or 6 miles.
I have not done anything different for the last 4 months, so why all of sudden the knee swelling and pain? Do my shoes have anything to do with the pain, they are about 5 months old? How can I make the swelling and pain go away? I am able to hike, but daily tasks are annoying due to my knee sensitivity.Thank You for Your Help,Jessica
I have a thirteen year old daughter and she has post tibular tendonitis.
She also has bone chips rubbing against the tendon from a previous fracture.
We have gotten her arches for her feet, but they don’t seem to help.
We also had her put in a cast for 2 weeks. A few days after she got out of the cast the pain came back.I don’t want her to have surgery, but I don’t know what to do.

Recently I suffered a severe elbow dislocation of my left arm. Tendons and ligaments have been damaged and I am experiencing extreme pain, and lack of movement, which is expected of course. However, I would like to recover and resume my regular outdoor activities and work as quickly as possible and would be interested in any helpful information as to how to treat or mend this type of injury. Obviously flexion, extension, supination, and pronation as well as elevated pushing and pulling motions. If there is anything else I can try please let me know.Sincerely,Deonna Page

Hello, I am a female hockey player who has had a groin injury since August 2004 to now, March 2005. Because I was in season and was seriously needed by my team, I was never able to stay completely off my skates to allow the inury to heal.
I have not been skating for quite some time now, but am still feeling the injury when ever I am moving.
It is not a sharp pain, just a persistant soreness/strain feeling.
It was believed the I injured it by overuse.Anyhow, I have been recieving the typical athletic treatment of icing and resting, but nothing seems to be working. Can a groin injury be treated by surgery?
What other methods might be used to treat my injury?Thanks for your help.
when I flex my bicep i feel pain in my inner arm where my arm bends. I can work out my tricept but not the bicep. Is this a torn tendon?
Can anyone tell me what the proper excercises are for rehabing after surgery for a ruptured distal bicep tendon?Is there a website that shows a program?
I want to make sure my therapist is doing the right things and pushing me hard enough.Thanks!
