See a podiatrist...: These calluses may be related to a biomechanical condition called hallux limitus. If the big toe can't bend "up" during activities as much as it should, more pressure will be placed at the bottom of the big toe causing calluses. There MAY also be a small "extra" bone (a sesamoid bone) at the bottom of the joint. An x-ray will tell.

Most can return: The most common type of hip bursitis is trochanteric bursitis and occurs on the lateral (outside) side of the hip. Iliopsoas bursitis occurs on the anterior (front) side of the hip. Most do well with relative rest, rehab. Focused on strengthening and stretching and anti-inflammatories. Injections, especially those done under ultrasound gudiance, tend to be effective.

Does the chiari malformation run in families? Will my children get it?

Dr. Rose Wenrich
Family Medicine 39 years experience
Uncertain: There are different types of chiari. There have been rare reports of a tendency for this to run in families. It's not common. To prevent the severe forms of chiari malformation and other neural tube defects, it's important for women of child-bearing age to have adequate Folic Acid in their diets even before they conceive! talk to your family doctor or ob-gyn about good "pre-conception" nutrition.

Is it a bad idea to play sports with a fractured toe?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Jeffrey Kass
Podiatry 28 years experience
Yes: A bad idea. If you really really really had to because you are a professional and you were in the super bowl or something they make turf toe plates which prevent bending in the forefoot and then you could wrap the toe in coban or coflex, but in reality, it is not a good idea.
