Can a patient with deep vein thrombosis on his/her lower extremity, have a massage on affected area?
Eventually, Yes: There is no set rule or particular answer to this question. However, i would not recommend that sort of direct repeated pressure to that area for some time after a dvt. Even a few weeks after an acute episode of DVT would be reasonable.. The risk is probably small but why take that risk? Just wait several weeks and then you can resume massage. Once the clot becomes chronic it is much less likely to embolize. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Is it safe to wear a 18mmhg compression stockings while recovering from leg injury caused by Running? Like swollen muscles & visible spider veins?
Lighten up: Definitely do not massage the leg that has the deep vein thrombosis since a loose clot could break free and travel. Leave the other leg alone since an undiagnosed smaller clot could exist there also. People with DVT are usually on blood thinners so bruising can occur with vigorous pressure elsewhere, so be careful and lighten up on the pressure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

After MRI, dx with c4-c5 disc herniation. Painful neck, shoulder & upper arm. How long should I wear a collar with simultaneous PT & meds.
Until improved: however that really depends upon the disc herniation as if this is large, surgery may be needed to remove the disc from pressing on the nerves.
