Partial Tear Of Quadriceps Tendon
Quad tear: Progressive rehabilitation should provided this answer by being able to return to functional activity.
Knee won't straighte: If you can't straighten out your knee the tendon tore and it needs to be reconnected surgically.
Quad strain: Pain above the kneecap or mid thigh depending on the strain area. Sometime there is swelling or bruising. It may also be difficult to flex the knee.
I was diagnosed with chondromalacia patella and tendinopathy of quadriceps tendon. Having unbearable pain inspite of 7 days complete rest not walking.
Be seen: The patellar tendon connects the knee cap to the tibia. Without your patella tendon, you can not straighten your knee and it would be difficult to walk. A partial tear means it is not completely torn, but a high grade means it is pretty close to a complete tear. It is probably going to need to be fixed or you may have a poor outcome. Thank you.
Cast, brace: A slight partial tear in the tendon can probably be treated with either a cast or brace for 6-8 weeks. A complete or almost complete tear would require a surgical repair.
Two ways...: Conservative therapy or surgery may be used. Please see an orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeon for help. One in your are can be found at www. Aofas. Org.See 1 more doctor answer
Thumb or Elbow?: The ulnar collateral ligament (ucl) is a primary stabilizer to one of your thumb joints. It provides stability to the thumb when you pinch something between your thumb and index finger. It is injured when the thumb is bent backwards and outwards. It is unlikely that you injured the actual flexor tendon to the thumb but rather the insertion of some thumb muscles that attach near the ucl.
Partial tear in right posterial tibial tendon in January. Had been immobilized, crutches, fine for months. Pain back with less mobility. Surgery?
Orthotics/MLS laser: A partial posterior tibial tendon tear often forms a lumpy scar in the area of pain. Other conservative treatments can include the use of custom orthotics to hold the arch up to reduce the strain on that tendon. The MLS laser which is a cold non painful laser treatment program can be helpful too.See 1 more doctor answer
Rest, ice, time: Typically an injury involving a partial muscle tear with heal over a six week time period. The acute symptoms can be helped with ice, rest and nsaids. As the symptoms improve, the use of physical therapy can be used to help regain strength, flexibility and gradually a return to full sports and activities.
Rest and pt: A good sports minded pt can help.
A tear is a tear: The degree of tendon tear may differ in radiologist interpretation; however, a tear is a tear. Keep in mind, the MRI is a diagnostic test. Your doctor should be treating your symptoms based on his/her exam and use the MRI to confirm. Bottom line, you need the tear to heal and to avoid re-injuring it. That should be the doc's focus in treatment plan.See 1 more doctor answer
How is a partial tear of the patellar tendon treated? My leg is only comfortable when flexed. Thanks!
Ouch: Once you are certain this is a partial patella tendon rupture you need to rest it for a period of time in a brace. See your orthopedic surgeon for additional recommendations.
I have a full thickness tear in shoulder and a partial tear in bicep tendon. Is surgery my best option? Have had this for 5 months.
Yes: I presume its a full thickness rotator cuff tear. Its a bit uncommon in your age group. However, if the diagnosis is based on a good physical exam, and it correlates to MRI findings, its probably the correct diagnosis. Treatment depends on tear configuration, but the natural history of rc tears is to become larger. Some balanced tears do well with pt. If pt hasn't helped, then rc repair is the best option. Its done arthroscopically, takes about 1.5hrs, and is out patient. Full healing takes 4-6months. For the biceps, its usually a significant pain generator, and should be addressed with tenodesis (reattach to humerus) or tenotomy (release). The choice depends on activity level and other factors. Tenotomy is the least invasive, and has excellent results. Surgery is best done by a sports medicine trained orthopedist.See 1 more doctor answer

I have a partial tear in my Achilles tendon and was told to get a walking boot. Should I get a short or tall walking boot?
Tall: You need to nutralize the Calf muscle and prevent the ankle from flexing. A tall boot would be more secure and reduce play in the ankle. Also add heel lifts to lesson tension on achilles tendon.See 6 more doctor answers
