Loss Of Patellar Reflex
There is stable narrowing of the medial patellofemoral articulation with full thickness cartilage loss and fissure of the patellar apex. Explain pleas?
What is meaning of full thickness chondral loss to medial patella and what is heterogeneity of lateral patellar?
Can loss of height be due to loss of energy resiliency in the disc spaces. Or loss of water, high blood sugar, loss muscle spasticity after psych meds?
Wcapsular distention causes moderate deformity of the cranialfibers ofthe supraspinatus moderate cartilage loss at the acromioclavicular joint meaning?
It sounds like there: is fluid in the joint which is distended. This in turn pushes up on the supraspinatus & deforms it or makes it bow upwards. @ the, level of its attachment @ the humoral head. Mod cart loss @ AC joint means there's arthritis there, or could also B from infection or inflammation. ...Read more
Following is the MRI report of my right knee,
1.Partial tear of acl
2.Moderate joint effusion
3.Tear of popliteofibular ligament.
Natural cure ?
Not likely: Ligaments have poor vascular supply, so the likelihood of complete healing after an injury is low. The acl tear could scar somewhat, but injury to the latter represents damage to one of the posterolateral corner structures which is an important stabilizer to the knee and which could predispose to further knee damage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mri result: 1-2mm cartilage injury or degeneration in weight bearing medial femoral condyle possibly involving free edge of meniscus. What next?
Medial Knee Pain: As a podiatrist, i would team up with an orthopod and physical therapist to help you. I would design wedges for your shoes to off weight the sore area, while you work on strength, flexibility, knee bracing, activity modification, and anti-inflammatory measures.

What does this MRI result mean for my right knee? Focal full thickness cartilage loss of far lateral patellar facet. Specifically the "focal" part.
Stress: Some times people tighten up because they know they going to tested that will lead to false result. This why doctors talk to the patient to take their attention off while doing reflexes testing. ...Read more
focal thickening and increased signal intensity of ileotibial tract near tibial attachment, favor chronic injury.
Can you explain?
Normal: Body in general does NOT want to lose weight. When we reach plateau, body defense mechanisms against weight loss are kicking in. Time then to change the work out in terms of type, intensity and make adjustments in diet. Discuss issues with nutritionist and certified athletic trainer to get you back on track. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck. Dr. R ...Read more
My MRI results for left kneew reveals: mild thinning of the cartilage along the lateral femoral condyle with out full thickness defect or underlying reactive change. There is mild to moderate thinning of the medial compartment cartilage w/out full thickn
You : You have several reasons for pain based on this report. Where is your pain? Along the inside, front, or back of the knee. Based on the fact that there is mild to moderate thinning of the articular (joint surface) cartilage in the medial (inside) compartment, i assume your partial menisectomy in 2000 was on the inside (medial) aspect of your knee. If that is the case, you have done very well for the past 12 years considering that you are a runner only to have mild thinning! grading of arthritis in an MRI (where most likely you were laying down) is sometimes a little artificial so it is a little hard to tell how bad it really is. You definitely have thinnning, and it is probably a little more advanced in the medial(inside) compartment than for age, although basing this on a report is very subjective. The baker's cyst is located in the back of the knee, so if your pain is in the back, then this is the most likely the culprit. That being said, the baker cyst is a direct result of the joint being irritated, either from the medial meniscus tear or arthritis. Pain from the current meniscus tear should be along the inside of the knee, and it may be associated with instability, locking or catching. Based on this report, you should see a sports medicine professional to discuss your options. Good luck!. ...Read more
Severe tbi: In a patient that has recovered and is awake and interactive and conversant, it is unusual for head injury to have caused total loss of memory (both short term and long term). However, the more severe the tbi, the more likely there will be diffuse enough damage to affect both hippocampi of the brain. These are structures deep within the brain that are vital to memory function. ...Read more

Can a 11 month insubstance tear in central insertional fibres of the distal Archilles tendon heal without surgery?
Partial tears might: If it is a complete tear, no. If it is a partial tear, there is a chance that it might heal without surgery. A medical boot that limits movement of the Achilles tendon , one that immobilizes the ankle, would certainly be needed. ...Read more
