Would you recommend I get an MRI of my wrist if I am experiencing moderate throbbing pain in the carpal area behind my thumb and I am a regular weekend golfer (4-5x per month) just started icing for first time.

Not at first.: Talk to your doc about it. Often physical therapy is tried first and if no improvement, further tests can be done. MRI should wait, unless serious trauma caused the pain and x-rays were negative. This is usually a technique issue or undertraining. Any exercise should be done 3 x a week, or strength does not develop and you never get stronger. ...Read more

I am having a lot of medial knee pain worse at night i also having a displacement of the meniscus i don't know how to find relief? Clicking and lock?

I am having a lot of medial knee pain worse at night i also having a displacement of the meniscus i don't know how to find relief? Clicking and lock?

Get it evaluated: Unfortunately what you are suffering from are called mechanical symptoms associated with the meniscus flap getting caught in the joint. There is poor blood supply to the meniscus therefore there is a low probability that it will heal on its own. Therefore i suggest an evaluation with an orthopedist to discuss possible options to treat the meniscus tear. ...Read more

There are many treatment options open, don't hesitate to be seen. ...Read more

I fell down the stairs and my metatarsophalangeal joint is in pain .  What should I do and I'm a college student so Im trying not to miss class?

Those darn stairs.: Well without an x-ray evaluation one could never really know as to a possible fracture. Having said that, You need to be on the RICE diet. Rest. Ice applied. Compression dressing and Elevation. Crutches can help to get around but until it is evaluated, your are in the hands of mother nature and good old common sense. Now go out there and win one for the Gipper. ...Read more

Strain/non dominant?: If it is ur non dominant hand, it may b weaker & was strained while ur dominant is stronger an could handle it if it's ur dominant u may have used it harder 2 do the pull ups, aiding your weaker side.

Supplement/OTC: Some good options for general joint pain: try a glucosamine-chondroiten supplement (+/- msm or asu). Can also try an over the counter anti-inflammatory such as Motrin or naprosyn (naproxen).

Menisci poor healing: Menisci rarely heal in adults once they are torn. They have poor blood supply and frequently require surgery to "heal". Look up arthroscopic partial meniscectomy. Continue exercises and go see an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more
