I have developed morton's neuroma after a foot injury from kick boxing in november. How long will this take to go away?

I have developed morton's neuroma after a foot injury from kick boxing in november.  How long will this take to go away?

May not: If you have a true morton's neuroma and have had symptoms for greater than 6 months, then conservative care may not resolve your problem. Neuromas are scaring and inflammation to the nerve sheath and the nerve itself. If the nerve is damaged, then it will usually not return to normal. Many times surgical excision is necessary. Discuss with your foot doctor. Dr l. ...Read more

Can tendonitis bi-lateral cause a serious injury to the knee 27 years later after previous injury has completely healed?

Not necessarily: No. But the problem previously could have been a precursor to your problem now. Overuse tendinitis can be from being overweight or over active on your patellar tendon. Later you can develop arthritis in your knee, especially under your kneecap. Reducing your weight, avoiding jumping, running, squatting and kneeling, wearing good cushioned arch supported shoes should help. ...Read more

Will continuing to play volleyball on a minor high ankle sprain exacerbate the injury and force me to have surgery?

Will continuing to play volleyball on a minor high ankle sprain exacerbate the injury and force me to have surgery?

See below : For any injury, the best course is the riice mnemonic ( rest, ice, ibuprofen, compression and elevation). The more you play on the ankle before it is completely healed, the more likely you are to worsen the injury and increase the likelihood of a permanent disability. As for surgery, that depends on the injury. For any ligamentous injury, recuperation time can be a long time - 1 to 2 months. ...Read more

Knee injury wrestling, week later no pain bit of instability, can walk fine, coach thinks 2-3 grade ACL tear could that be possible without much pain?

Knee injury wrestling, week later no pain bit of instability, can walk fine, coach thinks 2-3 grade ACL tear could that be possible without much pain?

Yes for sure!: Believe it or not, after a person tears their ACL most all the pain can resolve between 1 to 4 weeks. The initial pain is from the ACL tearing and bleeding into the knee in addition to bone bruises that occur. These all cause initial pain, but as the swelling resides and the bone bruises resolve, a knee with a torn ACL can essentially be painless. This is why some people put it off ......Mistake! ...Read more

An MRI revealed a fracture on the condyle of my femur. Will it heal on it's own? What can I do to speed recovery? (knee swelling, lost quad strength)

An MRI revealed a fracture on the condyle of my femur. Will it heal on it's own? What can I do to speed recovery? (knee swelling, lost quad strength)

Questionable: So...I am guessing that since the "fracture" was found on an MRI that this wasnt a bad injury. It is possible that you had some bone edema in the condyle (which can be interpreted as a fracture). If this is the case then, treat with a good NSAID (motrin/naprosyn), rest, possibly therapy. If you truly have a fracture this may need surgery or at the least a cast. ...Read more
