What evaluation should I have for musculoskeletal problems in my hand?

What evaluation should I have for musculoskeletal problems in my hand?

Orthopaedic hand doc: You are best served seeing a hand specialist for this problem. Hand surgeons may have general, orthopaedic or plastic surgery training. I recommend that you find a board certified hand surgeon with a certificate of additional qualification (caq) in hand surgery. If your hand surgeon is also an orthopaedic surgeon, it's an added bonus. Of course, I am biased!

I have musculoskeletal problems in my hand, can you tell me what caused this and. What treatmnent there is?

Need more info: Not without more information. If you are currently experiencing problems, the best thing to do is to see a physician so he or she can physically examine your hand and help you solve the problem. Common problems would include arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome, but there are more unusual or severe problems as well. Treatment will depend on the exact diagnosis.

I have questions about the long term impact on quality of life and musculoskeletal problems after 1st rib resection and stent placement.

Excellent questions: First go back and bring your list of questions to the Cardio Thoracic surgeon and surgical team and who operated on you. And or the Cardiologist who will continue to monitor and follow you. They know your particular case well and have examined you. They should be able to answer many of your questions. Good luck!

Treat the anxiety: Anxiety can present with feelings of stress and tension. Musculoskeletal pain and tenderness and other physical symptoms may accompany anxiety. Getting treated for the anxiety therefore helps to alleviate associated physical symptoms. Adding some physical workouts also helps the anxiety.

What to do if I have mild torticollis, possible musculoskeletal problem and slipped disc, what now?

NSAIDS, ice, heat...: Pain, stiffness, and inflammation can be relieved with otc medications like advil or aleve (naproxen). Ice for about 45 minutes will address inflammation and swelling, never apply ice to the skin, always over a towel or clothing. Follow this by heat for about 20 to 25 minutes to help soothe and relax tight muscles. Daily gentle range of motion, strengthening and stretching exercises.

Mostly upper left chest pain with movement. Just recovered from cough. So I think its a musculoskeletal problem. But, sometimes it hurts when at rest.

That does not: Change the fact that it is a chest wall muscle sprain from cough. The muscles are still in spasm and will hurt whether at rest or with movement

Is it musculoskeletal problem if I've left chest pain that's quite localised n when I press on the last right ribs it's like bruise. Had been coughing.

Mgt: You may have strained musculature due to the cough. If the cough is resolved and the pain persists or is associated with other symptoms, I would recommend a chest radiograph and PCP visit. In the meantime, please apply a heating pad to the area.

Can musculoskeletal tension, rhinitis, and anxiety cause breathing problems. I had pft which confirmed asthma. I don't take any medications. Should i?

Asthma: Yes but keep in mind people who are short of breath will also have increased muscle tension so difficult to tell cause and effect. Sounds like you would benefit from treatment-may be able to get by with treatment for rhinitis alone but for sure if you are symptomatic then you should be on therapy.
