What to do if i dislocated my pinkie while playing basketball. Pinkie was and how do I take care of it?

Be seen: Even if you feel like you have " popped" it back in position, I would encourage you to be seen for a follow up exam and X-ray.

How do I know if i tore my ehl tendon in my toe?

I was playing basketball and caused a minor sprain on my ankle yesterday and I have a baseball try-out tomorrow how do I heal it quick ?

RICE, RICE, baby: You can't speed up the biology of healing, but rest, ice regularly (20min every hour), gently place an ace wrap on your ankle, and keep your ankle elevated higher than your heart as much as possible. One day may not be enough time to recover but will give you best chance. When you do go back, use an ankle brace with laces and crisscrossing straps for added support. ...Read more

With Ktape on my foot do I have to wear the boot? What should I do ?

What happened?: It sounds like you may have sprained your foot or ankle but you have not said what is going on, what happened, and when it began. Either way, the doc who prescribed the boot is the best person to tell you the best way to successfully and rapidly recover from your injury.

I was playing football yesterday and i went to tackle someone and my shoulder popped out of socket. How do I treat this?

RICE: At your age (not that you are old) i would sling it for a week and see how it feels. Try to avoid throwing motion. If you have pain that continues and is laterally based you could have torn your rotator cuff. Recurrent instability is going to be less likely. Seek a shoulder specialist if your pain continues following period of rest, ice and nsaids. ...Read more

R.I.C.E. + X-RAYS: As it appears you are in the acute stage of injury, the first thing you need to do is treat the pain and swelling. Rice=rest, ice, compression, and elevation. It is most like quite stiff and bruised at this point. I always treat this with an unna boot. This is a soft cast. (zinc oxide paste impregnated gauze) it decreases the swelling and if also decreases the inflammation. I advise x-rays! ...Read more

I think I rolled or sprained my ankle. Do I have to wrap it? I don't know how to wrap an ankle.

Yes: The best thing is to ice, ace wrap, elevate right away. There is usually a picture on the box but you an simply start just below the toes and wrap around overlapping the ace by 50% until it goes above the ankle almost to mid calf. Not too tight! just enough to apply gentle compression. Pain not letting you bear weight is a sign to take you to the doctor's office. ...Read more
