Locked elbow: Very important to make sure you do not have a spontaneous infection. If you have any fever redness or lots of pain with motion go to ER or your family doctor and get this checked out ASAP. If not infected could be a loose body or other soft tissue structure getting stuck in the elbow joint. Go to an orthopedic surgeon and get 3Vs xrays of the elbow done. If Xrays negative then get MRI. ...Read more

Skin creases on finger(lower side&back)seem stretched/more evident, after 1month coban wrap(pip joint), while normal movement&stretching.What can I do?

The pip joint: Creases on top of the finger can go "missing" for a time if the joint is swollen and stiff. The skin there is very flexible and if the jointis bent a little or the joint is full the creases look different. The creases dont really strethc they just look different until time passesif and when / after the mechanics normalize. ...Read more

Continue with motion: Need to make sure you can fully straighten your pip joint. If this joint is bent and you can't fully straighten then you should see a hand therapist who can start you with splinting. Once you loose the ability to straighten the pip joint may never return. Flexion will come back once the swelling resolves. ...Read more

Is it normal for many of your joints to pop and crack just with simple movement? I have oa and had several surgeries. Acdf c5-c7 3 yrs ago, neck worse

Cervical spondylosis: Yes. The popping of the facet joints in the neck is similar to cracking of knuckles in the hands. After a neck fusion, there is extra stress on the adjacent segments (facet joints) that can lead to increased popping. Neck exercises can improved strength and range of motion and reduce popping. Likewise, cortisone injections may reduce pain and range of motion as well. ...Read more
