Physical therapy on lft. Greater trochantereric bursitis and left gluteus thminimus tear., on MRI done.(oct. 1.2012)the acute episod was in august,?

Not my regimen!: I would inject your tb, and then put you on a cycling regimen of graduated increasing intensity. I do not know what pt has to offer bursitis except great medical expense! Bicycling is the best sporting activity for gluteal issues, because it does not overload, but increases blood flow immensely, which helps heal sprained/strained muscle. ...Read more

What's sign symptom synovial leak under vastus laterasis, gluteus medius.  Treatment for this, had hip arthroscopy, capsule left open. 9 weeks ago. Thanks?

Second opinion...: I'm curious as to why you have had 3 hip scopes? What is your original diagnosis? If your capsule was left open the you should expect synovial fluid to leak into the soft tissues. If you have had 3 surgeries by the same surgeon and still have problems then I would get another opinion. ...Read more

Have RA & oa, chronic hip bursitis. Have had several steriod inject over the yrs. Now increased pain, MRI inflammation of ra, partial tears minimus/gluteus?

See details: You have not asked a question. However, chronic hip bursitis may often be referred pain from the lower back and not a true bursitis. I would suggest an MRI of the area. If it is a true bursitis, the bursa can be surgically removed. However, from your description it seems the pain is likely related to lower back issues. Have you seen a pain specialist? If not, consider doing so. ...Read more

What is the best treatment for increase in tears?

What is the best treatment for increase in tears?

Increased tearing: Here I assume you are asking about increased tearing rather than ways to increase your tearing. Increased tearing can be from an obstruction of tear outflow / drainage or from reflex tearing. In reflex tearing, the eyes are dry as a baseline, and some external factor (wind, etc.) dries them just a little more, which stimulates an outpouring of tears. Artificial tear use can help prevent this. ...Read more

What is the typical treatment for a muniscus tear is there surgery involved? What kind of pain medication and how long is recovery?

Hello. : Hello. I don't know the extent of your injury. Often, arthroscopic surgery is done to the knee. This means that the surgery is done internally, without filleting the knee open. Without knowing more about your injury it is hard to say how long the recovery would be. If there is a small tear and that is removed, your recovery time could be four to six weeks. (this doesn't mean you need to lie in bed for four to six weeks; but you wouldn't want to be playing sports).
It the doctor only needed to remove loose bodies from the joint space, that recovery might take two to four weeks. It the meniscus requires repair, it could take four months or longer for a full recovery. Often patients are prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Narcotics are often prescribed post-operatively to control pain. ...Read more

Therapy vs repair: Not all rotator cuff tears are treated the same. Factors such as age of patient, age of the tear, size of tear, location of the tear, and most importantly the symptoms of the patient all help determine the best course of treatment. A trial of nonoperative management with therapy and perhaps an injection is the usual 1st line of treatment. Surgery may be indicated if nonoperative treatment fails. ...Read more
