Few days treatment for wrist tendinitis & now can do the thumb test with little pain & more mobility. Can I go back to lifting weights now? Advice? Tnx

Weight training: A general rule after tendonitis or joint irritation has resolved is to go back at half load and half repetition. Wearing a glove or soft splint and avoiding the positions that previously caused irritation is important as well as knowing what may have set the problem off in the first place. Mechanics become even more important. Speak with a trainer, or PT and your doctor to clarlfy things ...Read more

When treating Achilles tendinitis, best schedule for ice therapy and stretching?

When treating Achilles tendinitis, best schedule for ice therapy and stretching?

Not that simple: Treatment for achilles tendinitis varies with the location of the pain along the tendon, the duration, the cause, and your activity level. Giving you a "schedule" for stretching not knowing these factors would be unwise. In addition, the achilles has a poor blood supply. If you have injured this, ice may actually delay the healing process. Please have this examined by a specialist. ...Read more

Achilles tendinitis is killing me. 3 sessions of ESW therapy didn't help either. What to do?

Achilles tendinitis is killing me. 3 sessions of ESW therapy didn't help either. What to do?

Stop hurting it.: Achilles tendonitis can be a very frustrating condition to treat. The speed of improvement is slower than the patient is willing to wait on. So many times, the inflammation is treated and not the cause of the inflammation process. The idea is to get more blood to the tendon without adding more injury. I find the best way is moist heat applied to the area and often. Use a Cam walker for protection. ...Read more

Osteopath exam: 18/f w. "Anterotated hips & snapping hip" told "iliopsoas tendinitis", which is a theoretical & unproven theory. A subluxing sacroiliac joint is more likely & proven to generate this type of sound. Study Hypermobitity Syndrome & Beighton Criteria. For soft tissue disorders see Osteopaths. Avoid Chiropractors, who are not skilled diagnosticians. Massage therapists should not be making diagnoses. ...Read more

I was in MVA. MRI shows Rotator cuff tear, labra tear and tendinitis on shoulder. EMG shows pinched nerve. Will Physical Therapy help and how long?

Can't answer w/o inf: The space here is limited to provide a good answer to your question. You should speak to an Orthopedic Surgeon or sports medicine doctor (rehab?) to answer this question. Generally, rest, ice, & compression is used to help support healing. Anti-inflammatories like Tylenol (acetaminophen) could be used also. Later on, rehab is used when healing has started but timing is up to the surgeon. ...Read more

I have Achilles tendinitis and go to physical therapy I take tramadol 3 times a day I usally take one before I got to therapy but still hurt while doing it the therapist reccomend an NSAIDs patch why would they reccomend that?

NSAIDs: Assuming your diagnosis is tendonitis, your physical therapist likely recommended an NSAID patch to directly to your Achilles tendon to reduce inflammation.

What therapy or surgery is best for a full thickness tear of my infraspinatus tendon measuring 1cm transversely with tendon retracted by approximately?

What therapy or surgery is best for a full thickness tear of my infraspinatus tendon measuring 1cm transversely with tendon retracted by approximately?

Surgery: Unless you are a very low demand, inactive person, surgery would certainly be better. When you have a partial tear of the rotator cuff, the ends are still approximated and therapy can help with the healing process. In a complete tear the ends retract and they will never heal unless repaired. An elderly person can have them scar down and have some function, but most people better with repair. ...Read more
