Attachment to bone: The muscle which is the engine of joint movement can only function through its attachment to the bone by way of the tendon. While there are many distinct types of tendons, some broad and others narrow, they are always the interface between muscle and bone. ...Read more

What exactly : Is your question? Achilles tendonitis and an extra bone. The injury did not cause the extra bone. It could of caused the tendonitis but you did not share what the injury was. Are you asking what to do now? Physical therapy is good for the tendon, sometimes docs advocate immobilization, others like eccentric excercises. Heel lifts may be helpful.Or immobilization in a cam walker type boot. ...Read more

This : This sounds like a very serious injury. If you are unable to use your hand or move your finger that may mean that the ligaments or tendons were severely damaged, this may not heal on it's own. Please see your surgeon immediately. ...Read more

Tendintis vs. CTS: Both diagnoses, dequervain's tendinitis and carpal tunnel syndrome can be seen in "new" moms. Dequervain's is more common with pain at the wrist below the thumb. It can be painful with breastfeeding due to sustained posture. Carpal tunnel would be associated with pain, numbness noted when awakening. It also can be caused by extreme wrist posture while breast feeding. Both can respond to splints. ...Read more

I was told that I have an accessory bone in my foot, per X-ray. Does this increase the likelihood of an accessory muscle/tendon near the ankle?

I was told that I have an accessory bone in my foot, per X-ray. Does this increase the likelihood of an accessory muscle/tendon near the ankle?

No.: Accessory bones are fairly common, and some are within the tendons. Unless there are symptoms of pain or limited use, these are not usually clinically important. There are some variations in the number of muscles and corresponding tendons, but these are less common, and usually do not cause any problems by themselves. These can be injured with trauma and mimic other disease processes. ...Read more

Hard to tell: Hard to know for sure. Tendons hurt when they try to move against something that wont move, ligaments hurt when stretched or pressed. Bones hurt when they carry a load or when pressed. Muscles hurt when compressed or pressed on or when they are used.Joints hurt when they are moved most of the time. ...Read more

My mother is 70 years old, weak bones, weak muscles, weak tendons. What is a great supplement for her?

Vitamin d3 2,000 IU: The single best supplement to address these concerns in addition to a balanced diet would be vitamin d3 2, 000 iu daily. Strong bones are needed to be able to build stong muscles and tendons. Vitamin d is frequently lacking. Calcium is usually sufficient in most individuals diet. Vitamin d deficiency is also linked with depression and loss of cognition. ...Read more
