What does moderate prepatella bursitis and moderate grade proximal patella tendinopathy involving deep fibres mean as to how bad is injury?

What does moderate prepatella bursitis and moderate grade proximal patella tendinopathy involving deep fibres mean as to how bad is injury?

Not too bad: Thankfully, it does not suggest anything being torn a pre patellar bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa that is just superficial to the patellar tendon. The patellar tendon tendonopathy describes abnormality of the tendon itself. One way to describe it then is that you strained your patellar tendon as opposed to tearing it. It would be managed non operatively, sometimes using a brace. ...Read more

Is it just de-conditioning or can scapular bursitis cause shortness of breath (winded feeling) after relatively mild exertion?

Is it just de-conditioning or can scapular bursitis cause shortness of breath (winded feeling) after relatively mild exertion?

Not your bursitis: Bursitis would not cause shortness of breath. If exercising regularly does not improve your activity tolerance, see your primary doctor. If it hurts to take a deep breath, see your primary right away, or consider urgent care or emergency room. ...Read more

Modification of your: Activity is going to be the biggest help to your knees. There is no real surgical treatment for your problem outside of debridement of the patellar tendon. To improve your tendonitis, consider a short course of nsaids. Quad strengthening without flexion (straight-leg raises), ice massage over the tendon (ice frozen in a paper cup), no kneeling or crawling on knees and knee pads if you do. ...Read more

What pain medications would you prescribe for mild AC joint djd, supraspinatis distal tendinopathy w/o tear, mild SA bursitis all in the shoulder?

NSAIDs: Ibuprofen or Naproxen, for example work the best if tolerated and no specific contraindications are in place. Alternatively, Acetaminophen can be used with less anti inflammatory effect. Physical therapy should be part of the plan. ...Read more

I am having bursitis problem in my hip mainly when get out of bed in the morning. My CT scan says"mild productive changes at the greater trochanter"?

Hip Bursitis: I am not sure exactly what the term productive means on ct scan but the greater trochanter is the bone prominence you feel along the upper part of the leg. It is a common area for bursitis. Many patients also have pain when they lay on the affected side. A local cortisone/steroid injection into the area can eliminate the problem or certainly reduce the pain. ...Read more

My MRI shows mild intradubstance tear in supraspinatus tendon with mod tendinosis and subacromial bursitis and shoulder impingement can surgery fix it?

Surgery last option: Before jumping to surgery, most cases similar to what you describe should have a serious trial of at least six weeks of physical therapy to build up the muscles and tendons of the rotator cuff. This may include therapeutic ultrasound also. The goals are pain relief, strengthening and improvement of range of motion. Bursal injection may help too. Improvement takes time. ...Read more

Diagnosed w c5/c6 pinched nerve (ncs test), mild shoulder bursitis & bicep tendinosis (mri), & de Quervain's (finkelstein's) on same side. Possible?

Yes.: Possible. The ncs and MRI are pretty definitive tests. So I believe the c5/6 impingements. On the other hand finklestein's is also a pretty good predictor of de quervain's. Certainly could have all three. ...Read more

I had multiplanar mri&impresion:chondromalacia of medial trochlear cartilage. Moderate popliteal cyst with mild joint effusion. Pes anserine bursitis, prepatellar&intrapat bursitis?

Several issues: Chondromalacia means you have abnormal cartilage in the inside part of your knee where the kneecap (patella) sits. Everything else means you have fluid and/or inflammation in various places around your knee. A bursa is a sac that usually only has a little bit of fluid in it but can get inflamed and be painful. Popliteal cyst = baker cyst, which is accumulation of fluid in the back of the knee. ...Read more

Chondromalacia: Chondromalacia is damage to the cartilage surfaces of joints. In the knee it's similar to the wearing away of tire treads. This can cause inflammation which can produce increased fluid in the knee (effusion). If you have minimal pain and no locking, strengthening your thigh and leg muscles is recommended. Icing and anti inflammatories and pt can be helpful. Arthroscopy is recommended with locking. ...Read more
