Wrist got stepped on hard with cleats during soccer game. Instant pain.Next day tripped and fell into wrist,hurt even more. Can move little. Broken?

Go to ER: Please get examined and x-rayed immediately by Sports Medicine or ER doc especially if this is your dominant hand. If you don't have a fracture, you could still have ligamentous/tendon injury. That part of your body is structurally complicated and may need specialty care (Ortho-hand/Plastics plus Occupational Therapy). Don't sit on this. ...Read more

Complex entire horizontal lateral meniscus tear  no swollen locking catching knee can stairs climb up down+bend now pain on  off can i wait arthoscopy?

You can wait: It you're not symptomatic and that knee isn't limiting the activities that you want you do, I would recommend waiting on arthroscopy as the risks of surgery would outweigh the expected benefit. If it starts bothering you more or if it is in fact limiting your activities, then consideration of surgery is reasonable ...Read more

I have ankle hurts fell down the stairs?

For now: Apply an ice pack, keep it elevated and stay off it. If it's just a simple sprain, you'll feel better tomorrow. If you don't, you need an x-ray, so bring your ankle to either a podiatrist or an orthopedist, both of whom will have x-rays in their office (better than an er), so you can get diagnosed and treated properly. Good luck! ...Read more
