64 yes old. Can torn rotate cuff cause funny feeling onface. Slight burning some pain. Or sinuses?

No and maybe...: In general, it would be unusual for a rotator cuff issue to cause a funny feeling on your face. Sinus trouble could, but I would expect you to describe more symptoms, and the feeling is usually fullness or pain. One thing I would be concerned about when someone has a funny feeling on the face is the possibility of a warning symptom of shingles, which on the face can be serious. If continues, be seen. ...Read more

Is it not good playing with a slight torn meniscus?

Is it not good playing with a slight torn meniscus?

Consider repair: Meniscal tears have many subsets. Rare tears may heal spontaneously. However, the majority will not heal and thus are not candidates for repair. For those tears, which do have potential for healing, they should be considered for repair. If a repairable tear is exposed to high loads (sports, work, etc.) it may tear further and become non-repairable. The meniscus is very important: try to save it. ...Read more

What does a slight superior displacement of the meniscal root mean? Does that mean that the meniscus it torn? What do it look like? Please help

What does a slight superior displacement of the meniscal root mean? Does that mean that the meniscus it torn? What do it look like? Please help

Possible tear: Mri is 95% sensitive in detecting injuries to the meniscus. Displacement on the MRI and symptoms/physical exam consistent with a meniscus tear should be assessed by an orthopaedic surgeon experienced in sports medicine and/or arthroscopy. Surgery can be performed to repair the root, but is difficult, less successful in knees over age 30 and not as straightforward as a "routine" scope. ...Read more

I found out I have a mild shift to my knee cap and torn ligaments and cartlig missing. Would I need a cast after surgrey?

I found out I have a mild shift to my knee cap and torn ligaments and cartlig missing. Would I need a cast after surgrey?

Restrictive bracing: Very rarely (to never) is the knee joint actually casted. In situations where a knee should not be flexed following surgery an immobilizer or brace (locked in extension) may be applied. However, these options are more conducive to post-op pain management modalities, bathing, and monitoring of incisions for infection. Most likely you will only have to deal with a brace and crutches. ...Read more

Tore my trapeze 8months ago still feel the pain n spasms?

Ouch. Need trainer: Any muscle tear takes time to heal. 8 months? Likely you are reinjuring yourself. I suggest a visit with a physical therapist or trainer. Remember my orthopedic sirgeon colleagues can also be of help. If it's been eight months it's time to bite the bullet and see someone. This advice is predicated on not knowing how you injured yourself and without a proper exam. PT is way to go though. ...Read more
