Does wearing patellar straps all the time help heal patella endonitis?

Does wearing patellar straps all the time help heal patella endonitis?

Treatment options: My suggestions to patients with patella tendonitis consist of rice, anti-inflammatories (oral/ topical), quad stregthening, lower extremity stretching. I also may suggest ice massage, or counterforce bracing. If the above list does not help then you may want to consider discussing prp with your physician based on some recent literature (http://drmarkgalland.Com/category/knee/). ...Read more

Incised retinaculum ankle-fasciotomy. Extensor tendons now subluxing. Knee buckling from feels like muscles on lateral side giving out. Related?

Joint problems: It sounds like you have both knee and ankle problems, and when you have serious enough ankle joint problems, it is not uncommon to cause problems one major joint away - in the knee. If you haven't already had advice from your orthopedist, you need to discuss how stable the knee is since the ankle surgery.

Have torn ligaments in knee. Can femur actually slip off the top of the tibia? Could something fracture? Using exercise bike & walking for strength.

Have torn ligaments in knee. Can femur actually slip off the top of the tibia? Could something fracture? Using exercise bike & walking for strength.

Torn ligaments: It would be unusual for your femur to slide off your tibia unless you tore all the ligaments around your knee like in a knee dislocation. If you just tore your acl then your knee can be unstable with subluxation of the bones. Sometimes the acl can avulse from the tibia with bone. Exercise and knee strengthening is good for a acl tear and consideration of surgery can be discussed with your doctor. ...Read more

You need the brace!: You still need the brace. It is not all healed if it still hurts. First, get an MRI to rule out a longitudinal tear of the posterior tibial tendon.

Injured knee torn cartilage front and sides for5 months until seen by doc will elevating icing and hot baths keep it from getting worse?

Injured knee torn cartilage front and sides for5 months until seen by doc will elevating icing and hot baths keep it from getting worse?

RICE Protocol: Treatment for knee injuries with torn ligaments/cartilage can vary based on the severity of symptoms. If there is swelling and instability, I would recommend ice to reduce the swelling and elevation. Compression with an ACE wrap or support could be helpful. If there is pain associated and if you can take a NSAID then short course of Advil/Aleve can be tried. Avoid running/athletics. ...Read more

What can cause teeth to wear down quickly? I need my teeth for the next three fourths of my life. Can simply chewing food do this or gliding wrong

What can cause teeth to wear down quickly? I need my teeth for the next three fourths of my life. Can simply chewing food do this or gliding wrong

See your dentist: Teeth get abraded/worn by age, diet, medications and grinding. Normal wear and tear creates some, but at age 25--you need acid. Acid comes from your gut (gerd), plaque (bacteria convert sugar into acid) and diet (think: lemonade, carbonated and energy drinks). Dental cleanings and Fluoride will help to limit it, but brushing does not prevent acid erosion if the diet is high in sugar and/or acid. ...Read more

Every night I fall asleep I wake up with a tingling sensation in the ulnar nerve distrubtion of my hand. Is nerve gliding a good tx approach?

Possibly a first try: Nerve gliding is unlikely to make your symptoms worse, and many people find that it is helpful, especially when combined with antiinflammatories and avoidance of pressure on the elbow. If symptoms persist, a nerve block can be helpful, as can wearing cushioned pads while asleep to prevent pressure and excessive flexion at the elbows. Surgical decompression is sometimes required if all else fails. ...Read more

Does every male testicals hang outside the body? If not why?

No: The testicles form in the inguinal canal and usually descend before birth, some males - especially preemies - are born with undescended testicles; usually they come down by 9 months of age. When they do not descend surgery to keep the testicle in the scrotum can improve fertility and decrease changes of testicular cancer. When exposed to cold testicles draw back up, but are still considered to be. ...Read more

I still pass out after drinking but no longer wake up with a hang over, why don't i get them anymore?

Drink responsibly : Physical tolerance may explain this. A more serious explanation is neurophysiological damage derangement to the central nervous system. Alcohol is neurotoxic and excess intake of this substance to the point of passing is known to lead to identifiable brain damage. The brain is plastic & if you stop doing this now before it’s too late, you'll recover. ...Read more

Am i still growing? My fellow 20-21 year old friends and i hang out and recently i've noticed 2 of them have gotten a little taller. What's happening?

Unlikely to happen: Some kids continue to grow taller into their late teens or rarely early twenties but only when their bone maturity lags behind their age. If the growth centers of the long bones have fused, you cannot grow taller. A single x-ray of the wrist ; hand can gauge bone maturity.Most boys stop at 17. When you have reached bony maturity, you are done.Your friends may be wearing platform shoes. ...Read more

What if my clitoris happened to enlarge and hang, is there any way for it to get back to normal? How to get a hanging clitoris? Does it happen to everyone?

Hello. : Hello. The labia and clitoral hood (the layer of tissue overlying the clitoris) can become hypertrophied (enlarged) for a number of reasons: topical hormones applied to the labia/ clitoris; systemic female hormones; damage from giving birth; chronic skin inflammation of that area; stretching /pulling due to sexual intercourse or masturbation and genetics are some possible causes. I recommend that you be evaluated by your doctor to see if the cause can be determined. No, the excess hanging tissue of the clitoris or the surrounding tissue does ot happen to every woman. Some women opt to have a clitoral hood reduction. They may feel more positive about the appearance of their clitoris and labia if this is done. Also, it there is excess tissue surrounding the clitoris it could decrease sexual arousal . I hope this information is helpful. ...Read more
