I am 21. Have foot pain I have flat feet and was born with my hip dislocations. I have been tested for arthritis. What else could be causing this?

I am 21. Have foot pain I have flat feet and was born with my hip dislocations. I have been tested for arthritis. What else could be causing this?

Many possibilities: With a history of hip dislocations it is important to understand why. Sometimes hips are dislocated related to position in the womb. However, bilateral hip dislocations are more unusual and may be a sign of an underlying condition. Low muscle tone, excessive joint flexibility, or nerve problems can be related to hip dislocation. I would see a neurologist to rule out one of those condiitions. ...Read more

How to determine if i dislocated my finger?

How to determine if i dislocated my finger?

How does it look?: If the finger has a "bayonet" appearance at the joint, it is probably dislocated. It feel funny, and a little painful to move, which would not look like it is moving normally. If it is crooked or sideways, or if it is very painful to move, it would more likely be broken or featured. Regardless, both conditions need to be evaluated by x-ray and treated appropriately. ...Read more

Dislocated finger (pinky) during volleyball. How can I keep it from getting worse?

Protect then move it: Xray is a good idea to confirm that the dislocation is reduced fully and that there is not a fracture. If that looks ok, 7-10 days of immobilization in a splint with occasional removal for cleaning and gentle range of motion. Then more aggressive stretching and strengthening exercises with the finger taped to the one next to it above and below the affected joint ("buddy taping"). ...Read more

What's a good way to check if my finger is broken, dislocated, jammed, or sprained?

I : I don't think anyone can tell by the fact that you have less or more pain. A bad sprain can hurt as much as a fracture. A bruised or "jammed" joint can hurt a lot if there is a lot of swelling. An x-ray will help. Swelling deformity are exam findings but many sprains can look like a fracture and the reverse so a proper exam and the right x-rags based upon the exam will be the best way. ...Read more
