Hey I play soccer and I get injured some times so what's more effective to use inongan or olfen? And thanks

Depends on…: What form you're using & how severe the injury. Olfen (diclofenac) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug for mild-moderate pain. Inongan (methyl salicylate) is usually a topical anti-inflmmatory. Prolonged use of diclofenac may irritate the stomach. Frequent use of salicylates can affect hearing. If using either only short-term, decide according to the amount of pain: diclofenac for more sever. ...Read more

I tore my MCL in oct 2012 I play soccer year round 1st dev. My MRI isn't till sep 2013. I feel it move weird. I kept playing soccer with a donjoy. Am I hurting it more? Should I get surgery? Future?

Follow MD's orders: What does your doctor say about this? Even without an MRI a physical exam should be able to determine the stability of the knee. If the knee is determined to be unstable, then playing on it can in fact do more damage. Braces do not entirely solve this problem. If unstable, surgery is the best course of action. ...Read more

It depends.: Groin pain can mean a hernia or else a hip problem.

If it persists you should probably get an x-ray to make sure it isn't serious. ...Read more

Any ideas why I get sore easily? Mainly on back, abdomen, groin, butt and shoulders. I play soccer 2-3 days in a week 19 yrs old/male.

Might need a break: Great that you're getting this kind of exercise, but wonder if the soreness could be from the soccer. Maybe a little conditioning in between soccer could help. There are also inflammatory conditions of the muscles that could be causing this discomfort. Talk to your doctor and let him know the symptoms, to see if any workup is in order. ...Read more

Low, "flutters" does: Not necessarily mean cardiac arrhythmia; generally ≥30% of time, rhythm monitor recordings during flutter/palpitation sensations do not show any changes in heart rhythm. Thus best use event monitor (worn during time most likely to have symptoms) & be sure to record date&time of symptoms to correlate with the recording when reviewed later.

Is it better to get surgery or rehab after dislocating the patella twice? I did rehab the first time and started playing soccer and did it again.

Is it better to get surgery or rehab after dislocating the patella twice? I did rehab the first time and started playing soccer and did it again.

Rehab before surgery: You're describing a recurrent patella dislocation syndrome. Rehabilitation is always preferred prior to surgery. In the meantime, use of a knee sleeve with a lateral buttress might discourage the knee from dislocating during sport play. Surgery does not always solve the problem. Seek out a competent Orthopedic specialist for advice and persistent problems. ...Read more
