Metatarsal

1

i broke my 1st and 2nd Metatarsals at work by having something drop on my foot. i had a cast on for 8 weeks.the doctor then x-rayed my foot again and said the 1st Metatarsal hasn’t healed properly yet and said he won’t put another cast on this time as it might bond better without one, and not to put all my weight on the injured foot. i’m now on my 12th week and still can’t walk. how long do these things usually take to heal?
thanks

Hello, my wife has been diagnosed with reverse cervical lordosis along with mild dextroscoliosis and herniated cervical c-4, 5, 6 and 7.
I was wondering what would be safe and helpful physical therapy she can do on her own, because she does not have insurance.

back/shoulder/leg pain.

2

I am having a lot of trouble with my back.
Some times I get to where I can’t move and have pain down my left side. Recently I have been experiencing pain in the upper chest up into my left shoulder and down my arm.
My doc says it is not a heart problem.
She feels it is due to the scoliosis pulling on that side.
I am also experiencing pain starting at the hip and going to the toes, pain in my lower back on both sides, pain in the back of shoulders and down the top left side of my back.
They put me in physical therapy in which they did not do x-rays first and now I am just having body pain everywhere. Especially on the left side.
What is going on or what should I do?

Hey!
I’m 18 yrs old and thinking about going into physical therapy.
I was wondering what type of education you need to have and what type of trainging you need. Also could you tell me your likes and dislikes about you’re job
