Cervical Segmental Dysfunction
Can you rehabilitate if my cousins injury was untreated for a couple years and he's barely treating it? He has cervical dysfunction.
Probably: I'm not sure exactly what you mean by cervical dysfunction, but many people with chronic neck pain can be successfully treated with exercise and physical therapy. Your cousin needs to keep in mind, though, that since he has had symptoms for quite a while, it may take some time for him to get relief.
I have left ventricular dysfunction & cervical spondylosis. What is the safest nsaid for me? Long half-life naproxen or short half life ibuprofen?
A Suggestion: See if you can use volatren gel 1% 3-4 x / day which is topical and generally will not have systemic effects. This works very well for a subset of patients and is well worth atry in your case.See 1 more doctor answer
Hi! Could cervical atlas bone/muscle dysfunction cause strong head/neck palpitations, tight jaw, throat & ear fullness, facial & eye discomfort?
Yes: Dislocations in this area can cause a wide variety of symptoms. Other problems however can cause the same set of problem, s
Yes: If you haven't been evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon - recommend that.
Quite a lot: Cancer, left untreated tends to progress slowly but sometimes quite fast.... It is somewhat unpredictable. But 3 years of waiting and watching will make most cancers incurable. Yet some of them can still be managed and treatable especially cervix cancer which remains localized for a much longer period of time than most other cancers.
Does not mean much: If patient is seen for bleeding problem and cervix is stenosed, it is difficult to do a endometrial biopsy. During a pregnancy, close to the delivery time, if cervix is closed woman probably will not go in to labor. On the other hand if cervix is more than than 3 cms dilated and effaced, will go in labor soon or can be induced easily.See 1 more doctor answer
Location: Its a part of your body, not a diagnosis in particular. You should ask your doctor what is the exact diagnosis.
Depends on the -: -place of the apex. Anterior, posterior, medial or lateral. Also there is no C-23. Try again!See 1 more doctor answer
Cervical spine: Not common but loss of normal lordosis can occur with poor posture, a previous traumatic injury, and early arthritis in the cervical spine. Neck exercises for strengthening muscles and improving posture can reverse the loss of lordosis (kyphosis).See a spine specialist for treatment.
Do you think cervical nucleoplasty using coblation technique is helpful in c-hnp? I received such procedure 4 weeks ago but no effect yet...
Ask questions: There are many "minimally invasive" spine procedures that sound great on paper and even have some +ve studies. B4 doing any procedure, ask how # your surgeon has done. If it's not covered by insurance ask why not- if a procedure costs less than usual surgery and has "wonderful" results, they will jump at covering it. Lastly, for hnp, these procedures should be done for arm pain, not neck pain.
Had gentle cervical manipulation by PT 3 days ago. Worried about VAD. Since it's been 3 days post, am I probably safe from worrying about that?
OK if no symptoms.: The typical pt with VAD is a young person who experiences severe occipital headache and posterior nuchal pain following a head or neck injury and subsequently develops focal neurologic signs attributable to ischemia of the brainstem or cerebellum. The focal signs may not appear until after a latent period lasting as long as 3 days, however, and delays of weeks and years have also been reported.See 1 more doctor answer
