Could salter harris fractures damage muscles?

Could salter harris fractures damage muscles?

Yes any Fx can do so: but the muscles tissue heals rapidly and rarely with any long term problems. The SH fx's in the hands/fingers, toes/feet. or wrists or ankles, mostly do not have many muscles around them, except rather small ones; and when they are damaged they do heal rapidly. ...Read more

Severe pain from shoulder down deltoid into bicep. Not rotator cuff. More pain when arm is rotated toward chest. Torn cartilage in other shoulder. ??

Severe pain from shoulder down deltoid into bicep. Not rotator cuff. More pain when arm is rotated toward chest.  Torn cartilage in other shoulder. ??

Get examined!: At age 55 your most common cause for this pain would still be 'impingement' ( or bursitis). Labral tears causing this pain are less likely unless associated with the biceps 'anchor'( SLAP) lesions -- but less likely in isolation in your age group.Osteoarthritis can cause pain in this distribution . AC joint arthritis can also cause pain when rotating arm towards chest ( adduction). See an ORS! GL! ...Read more

Shldr labrum tear spinal stenosis c6-7, mri ekg ct epis.no relief. which causing gtr pain.pain shldr blade along spine left arm to ring finger achy?

Cervical nerve : this would suggest irritation of a cervical nerve perhaps C6 or C7. Your neurologic evaluation should help clarify that. Since you're still having pain I would agree you need to have this reevaluated. These kind of symptoms could be for other reasons. Location of the shoulder blade to suggest some other issues as well. Ask your physician to have you see a neurologist. ...Read more

Pressure under l armpit, mid chest  r medial scapula w/belching. Not exertional.  Increase when lean forward. Neg mamo. Think lymph inf. What md?

Possible causes: There are a number of entities that can cause the symptoms that you are having. It appears that a work up has been started (negative mammogram). One thing that comes to mind with pressure that increased with leaning forward would be pericarditis, which is inflammation of the sac around the heart. As your work up appears to be in progress please continue to see your provider. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Musculoskeletal tension, poor posture, rounded shoulders, panic attacks, anxiety, asthma, & allergies has caused my chest to tighten & restrict lungs.

Musculoskeletal tension, poor posture, rounded shoulders, panic attacks, anxiety, asthma, & allergies has caused my chest to tighten & restrict lungs.

Too many things: You have mentioned many things, and I am sorry you are suffering with them. For your lungs to feel restricted and be tight however, asthma and allergies (exacerbated by anxiety) seem to be the only pertinent conditions to look at for an explanation. Good luck! ...Read more

HAVE MUSCLE STAINS: NECK TO ANKLE ALSO INTO ARM, MAINLY HIP SNAPPING. WOULD TENDON RELEASE SURGERY MAIN THIGH MUSCLES CORRECT WHOLE BODY SIDE STRAIN?

HAVE MUSCLE STAINS: NECK TO ANKLE ALSO INTO ARM, MAINLY HIP SNAPPING. WOULD TENDON RELEASE SURGERY MAIN THIGH MUSCLES CORRECT WHOLE BODY SIDE STRAIN?

Varies: You would really need a detailed exam to answer that. There are occasions where we can fix one condition and that can lead to improvements in other areas of the body due to compensation. There are other occasions where a person may have two or more conditions and fixing one of them will only lead to improvement on that specific condition. Don't hesitate to be seen and thoroughly evaluated. ...Read more

Chest xray what does small bone island 3rd left post rib, osseous density adjacent left 1st ant rib, low dens areas in clavicles scalpula humeri mean?

Follow up...: It is difficult to know the significance of the report you describe without more history. A bone island is a small benign sclerotic focus in the bone, but you also mention low density areas in the clavicles, scapula and humeri. Be sure to follow up with your referring physician about the significance of these findings. I hope this helps. ...Read more

Football injury tonight: coaches think grade 1 separation of AC joint with no clavicle involvement.  Er tonight or f/up in am?

Follow up in AM: As long as there is no broken bones and no loss of consciousness grade 1 ac joint separations are not emergencies. However, this diagnosis was made by a coach. And technically speaking, the clavicle is always involved since the further most end of it makes up half of the ac joint itself. ...Read more

Right sterno sticks out/clicks, right shldr blade clicks, ribs sore, Thoracic O.S symptoms/neuropathy.Esoph spasms, always swallowing air.All related?

Can B but not direct: Your right sternum and shoulder blade, rib complex can be related musculoskeletally to create the clicking action. The thoracic outlet syndrome with neuropathy is usually a lower extremity (arm/neck) issue. Esophageal spasm can occur from vagal nerve roots, and/or cervical ganglion issues. So, taking advil or ibuprofen can cause gastritis, and spasms. ...Read more

Is hyper fuel 9 x and muscle factor x safe?

Is hyper fuel 9 x and muscle factor x safe?

Marketing: These are both mixtures of simple chemicals that you get in a reasonable diet anyway. You can have more fun getting arginine from lean protein, caffeine from coffee, and magnesium from green vegetables. The one interesting molecule is beta-alanine, which is a precursor in the carnosine pathway in muscle and could perhaps have a real effect; it can cause paresthesias at high doses. Looks safe to me. ...Read more

Nope: Bench press is of course a specific pectoral exercise you want to rotate into your weight training, however, it will not " burn fat locally." Weight training plus cardio combined with healthy diet are key. You just have to lose the weight! ...Read more
