Lower Back Trauma

(2 discussions)

Has anybody got any information about trigger points re: muscular injuries. It’s been suggested that scarred muscle still in spasm may be the reason for a two year old injury failing to clear up. Anybody any experience of this?

Calf Muscle Pull/Strain/Tear???????

Hi…..I was playing golf yesterday and, immediately after hitting a tee shot (not a good one!), I felt a severe pain in my right calf. I don’t feel any pain when sitting or lying down, but have to limp in order to walk. I’m currently taking Bextra for a back problem (gosh, it really sounds like I’m a mess, huh?), so, perhaps that may help….????

Anybody ever have a similar injury???? Any suggestions other than to go to the doctor???

Elbow pain

I am a power lifter for many years. I’venever had trouble deadlifting untill about a year ago. My elbows would be very painfull when I would let the bar down to the ground. I have laid off dead lifts for as long as a year and started again and the pain is back. Help… I saw two orthapedic surgens and one said to operate and then I would be ok and another said don’t do anything??? I can still do pull ups, bench press, I just can’t deadlift without the pain which is terrible. Also, I have build up on the elbow’s, calcification.

Slight pain on right inner knee

(3 discussions)

Have had knee problems before (ITB syndrome) and now use orthotics which have been brill in sorting out that problems. This pain is like a tightness on right inner knee and feels at its worse when I squat right down and tighten muscles in knees. If I press on bone on inner knee just below knee cap I can feel like a brusing pain. I am a runner and have lots of races coming up. Will I make it worse by carrying on running? On a scale of 1 – 10 of pain, it is only about 3.

Please help decipher these MRI terms!

I had a MRI done on my knee on the 21st of December. After waiting for the doc to call for several days, I finally tried to call him and left messages for two days. I decided to go get the results myself from the MRI place which I did. I still have not received a phone call from my doc, but I did talk to the nurse yesterday. She tried to explain things to me and with the report in front of me, she left out quite a bit which I asked her about. She didn’t know. She set me up with an appointment to see the doc in late Feb. That’s a long time to wait for answers. Can anyone please decipher what this report suggests?

1 Popliteal cyst visible

2. Subtle osteodema along the articular surface of patella

3. Cortical irregularity and chondral thinning

4. Transcondylar injury is present.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks again
