Fracture (Definition)

A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more

My big toe hurts when i walk  it's not bruised or cracked . It hurts like in the middle part  of my toe ...The joint ? What is causing this

Irritation to a bone: Big toes take on quite a bit of pressure in gait. They give us most of our propulsion at toe off. If the toe was not injured, than just the very act of walking could be the mechanism of pain. If you have never fractured this toe before, i feel it is high unlikely it is arthritis at your age. Consider shoe sales. It could be due to the irritation of a tiny extra bone called an ossicle. ...Read more

Early Trigger finger: Sounds like the early stages of a trigger finger, before it starts to catch. See if you have a tender spot on your palm, at the base of your pinky where there's a bony bump. Nsaids like Ibuprofen might help if this is the case. An orthopaedic or hand surgeon can check it out and see if an injection is appropriate. ...Read more

The toe next to my big toe on my right foot constantly feels like a muscle is tightening causing it to involuntarily flex downward.

The toe next to my big toe on my right foot constantly feels like a muscle is tightening causing it to involuntarily flex downward.

Hammertoe?: You may be in the early stages of developing a "hammertoe". The top of your toe may begin hurting if it starts rubbing against the shoe. As long as it is flexible no worry. There are prosthetic devices that can pull your toe down or a shoemaker can stretch your shoe up. Depends on you. ...Read more

Fused joint...: This can be the result of a very common bony fusion where the distal interphalangeal joint is not present at all. It's not a problem unless it bothers you. See a podiatrist for an x-ray if you want to know for sure. ...Read more

Metacarpal bone of my middle finger is displaced, will it hurt me if it healef there?

Fracture Healing: Hi MuhammadW, If you have a displaced fracture of your 3rd metacarpal, it would be wise to have the fracture reduced (put back into anatomical position) by an Orthopaedic Surgeon. With metacarpal fractures, this is usually accomplished with closed reduction and percutaneous pinning. The risks you take when you do not seek treatment include nonunion of the fracture, which can be painful. ...Read more

Thumb pain is common: Thumb problems can be simple or complex. the joint at the base of the thumb is known as a saddle joint. The joint at the base of the thumb is commonly afflicted with arthritis at advanced ages. This sometimes responds to oral pain relievers but may require a corticosteroid injection for temporary relief. Surgery is needed for severe unrelenting pain. I hope this helps! ...Read more

Possibly: It could be broken, sprained or contused. The myth that one can't walk on a broken bone is just that;a myth. Go get an -ray, rest, ice, elevate, compress and take otc advil, tylenol (acetaminophen) etc until you are properly diagnosed and treated. ...Read more
