Many problems: The fact that 3 muscles attach to the fifth metatarsal ( the peroneals) and that the fracture is displaced can cause an imbalance in these muscles and a non-healing fracture of that metatarsal. The peroneus longus passes under the cuboid- this muscle stabilizes the inner foot in gait and this crush fracture can cause problems with walking-- you should see your podiatrist for reconstruction. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Possibly: The rotator cuff is located beneath both the acromion and the clavicle. The body has a tough time deciding where the pain is because of the low density of nerve fibers and organs in the area. Therefore rotator cuff pain can be across the back, in the clavicle or down the arm. You should get it checked out. ...Read more

Sorry to hear: This. A scapula is a very odd bone for a primary tumor, and also odd for something traveled to that bone, but it does no get bone spurs. A "mass" needs to be biopsied.

In WHIPLASH INJURY the nerves originating from spine inside vertebral column, CAN NERVES SNAP OUT? Due to rapid movement of neck.
No: Short of a traumatic displaced fracture or dislocation of the spine, the nerves do not "snap out" of their normal position. They are protected by strong ligaments and the bone architecture of the vertebral column that would have to be disrupted for them to move into an abnormal position. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Trauma can: Lead to arthritis. While the basal skull frx may have caused a number of issues at first, long term, if no displaced fragments it should heal without issue. However trauma significant enough to cause a basal skull frx probably did damage to joints of cervical spine, like facets, that could lead to arthritis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The MRI read: greater tuberosity avulsion fracture involving the supraspinatus and infraspinatus distraction of fragments 1.4cm from normal insertion?
Knee injury. MRI report "PCL Avulsion fracture of tibia (6-7mm displacement) with adjacent tibial bone edema. fibers are intact." is surgery needed?
Yes, it should if-: -U expect 2 have a functioning knee 4 the rest of Ur life.

possibly referred: The lunate bone is not far from the base of the thumb, and so it is possible that your pain is a referred pain from the lunate fracture. Another possibility is that in addition to the lunate fracture, you have also sustained a bone or ligamentous injury to the thumb itself. Thank you. ...Read more
No: If all that was injured is the coccyx. The spinal cord ends in the upper lumbar spine. The coccyx or "tail bone" is a small boney structure off the end of the sacrum. There are no associated spinal cord components that far down the spinal collumn. Injuries to this bone and surrounding soft tissues can be very painfull however, and perpheral nerves can be involved. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
