Have it evaluated.: Pain may last a long time following a foot or ankle injury. An x-ray can show if there is an underlying fracture. You may have a soft tissue injury if it is just a sprain and may have damaged the muscle, tendon, or ligaments in the area. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment. If the pain has not improved with conservative measures surgery may be a good option. ...Read more

Have Medial Meniscus tear w/ cyst wearing hinged knee brace but calf is very painful What should I do?

Have Medial Meniscus tear w/ cyst wearing hinged knee brace but calf is very painful What should I do?

How helpful is brace: If the brace is the source of the calf pain, but helps the knee, then an adjustment to the brace (size, fit, etc.) could be considered. Alternatively, a new brace could be utilized. Personally, I don't routinely use braces for meniscal tears unless there is a ligament tear as well or associated arthritis with a misaligned knee. Seek additional help if the brace is not the cause of the calf pain. ...Read more

Patella dislocation meniscus extruded past tibia. Swelling- large effusion mrii. Knee gave out while walking. Need for surgery? Pops clicks

Depends: Your need for surgery will depend on the stability and/or damage under your knee cap. If this is your first patella dislocation vs the latest ofmor, that could change things as well. The effusion or fluid in the knee is just a symptom of the dislocation. Its really the patella that needs to be evaluated. ...Read more

Acl knee brace should I wear one to prevent twisting?

Dr. Allen Lu Dr. Lu
2 doctors agreed:
Acl knee brace should I wear one to prevent twisting?

Not really: An acl brace has not been shown to prevent any rotation in the knee. It really only prevents stress on the mcl or lcl ligaments. A patient without an acl can still injury the meniscus and cartilage while wearing a brace. Furthermore, many braces inhibit the quad muscles, further worsening some symptoms. ...Read more

Immobilize >therapy: You can order a cast boot online for very little money. $35-$65. These are all removable casts. You need it tall like a real short leg cast. Keep your weight off it. Get crutches or a walker at drug store or good will. You need to immobilize it to allow the atfl ligament to heal. This will take 6 to 8 weeks to knit itself together. After it heals you really need to get therapy to rehab the ankle. ...Read more
