Check your hip: Hip problems typically cause thigh pain as well as buttock pain. However fractured hips generally hurt more when weight-bearing. Femoral nerve problems are often worse with hip flexion but shouldn't cause buttock pain. Any pain worse when recumbent is worth getting checked out, soon. ...Read more

Yes: A small/superficial injury to the skin of your hand should heal without any issue, even with your wrist exercises. It sounds like the injury is not over a joint so you should be fine. Just keep the wound clean (frequent hand washing and keep it covered until it heals or a scab forms) to prevent infection. ...Read more

I have been in a tempory cast for 1 week for a extensor digitorum injury it is no better will they put me in a regular cast?

Too early to tell: If it is properly fitted for you/your case, the temporary cast should work well. Casting basically works to immobilize the area and protect it from further injury. Healing is from your body and not the cast. Tendon injury may take many wks to heal and so 1 wk is too early to tell. Close follow-up with the doc is recommended for reassessment/care. Good luck. ...Read more

Why are there 7 shoulder extensor muscles?

Why are there 7 shoulder extensor muscles?

Best bet: evolution: The posterior deltoid, latissimus dorsi, teres major are shoulder extensors. Other muscles with extension moments include subscapularis, long head of triceps, infraspinatus, teres minor, sternal head of pectoralis major. Presumably shoulder muscles evolved to facilitate independent use of the upper extremities for fine motor tasks (allows me to type this answer) in upright biped organisms. ...Read more

What happens when flexor and extensor muscles contract at same time?

What happens when flexor and extensor muscles contract at same time?

Co-contraction: Simultaneous contraction of antagonist muscles is known as co-contraction. This creates a stabilizing or dampening effect on the involved limb. For example, when holding a drill in space and attempting to control how deep it plunges, your biceps and triceps co-contract around your shoulder and elbow. In some conditions (eg brachial plexus injuries) pathologic co-contraction can limit function. ...Read more
