Is it normal to feel soreness/discomfort while rehabing (non-operative approach) with PT from an Achilles Tendon Rupture?
Sure...: Possible, yesGet a more detailed answer ›
Varying degrees: Think of the severities you listed as a continuum. - if you have bicep soreness following any increase in your normal level of activitiy, then you likely strained the muscle fibers. The pain associated will likely subside w/ a proper amount of conservative treatment (rice). If no improvement see a physician. A strain itself can be of varing degrees & in the most severe cases a "tear" may result. ...Read more

Having muscle soreness all over after one dose of cipro (ciprofloxacin) 5 days ago for prostatitis. What are the chances of tendon rupture?
What can cause high blood cortisol but normal urine cortisol? My skin and hair is dry thinning muscle tendon soreness fatigue.
Many possibilities: There is a diurnal variation for cortisol levels, so levels in the morning are typically higher than in the evening. Cortisol is bound to a protein in the blood stream. High levels of this protein, such as seen in liver disease can cause high blood levels with normal urine levels. ...Read more
A HAND tendon may: Require surgery, splinting or observation depending upon the location, the percentage of injury and the preconditions prior to the injury. However a prompt assesment by a hand surgeon or a comparably trained health care provider is needed to determine the proper course of action. Hand surgeons are well versed in these decisions ...Read more
Few theories: Calcific tendonitis most commonly involves shoulder. Three main theories: reactive calcification; endochondral ossification with tendon cells converting to cartilage cells to form bone; ectopic bone formation with change of mesenchymal stem cells into osteogenic cells (bone forming cells). Tendintis usually deposits of hydroxyapatite (a crystalline calcium phosphate) in any tendon of the body. ...Read more

Tendon/ligament tear: Ligaments stabilize and typically run along the sides if joints. Tendons attach muscle to bone. Ligaments are torn when a joint is dislocated or strained. Tendons are torn when the muscle pulling on the bone pulls with more force than the tensile strength of the tendon will allow. ...Read more
Depends upon: Where it is but pain, loss of motions, decreased power, swelling, balck and blue are all suspect for an acute tear. A chronic tear may feel different and just show up as swollen tissue followed by a change in motion that may not be noted right away, if one suspects a tron or ruptured tendon it is importnat to seek treatment as acute repair may be indicated and it may not be even a few week s later ...Read more
Most need surgery:
Most tendon injuries require surgery to repair or reattach them to bone. Some will heal on their own, but in most cases there will be some loss of function (weakness, decreased movement).
Also, in many cases the repair needs to be done within a week or two. Waiting longer results in scarring which makes the repair more difficult and less likely to work as well. ...Read more
It can be: This observation is often due to normal anatomy. The platysma muscles run vertically in the neck and are strand-like enabling fine gradations of movement in turning the head. In some people you can see a prominent anterior edge. This is more likely in thin people with less fat/subcutaenous tissue bordering the muscles. Best to accept/embrace rather than consider plastic surgery. ...Read more
Depends: This depends on the severity of the injury. A strain can take weeks, partial tear may take the time like a bone fracture (6-8) weeks. A complete tear requires surgical repair and the recovery time varies. Speaking to an orthopedic surgeon will help. ...Read more
About 6 weeks: The answer varies depending upon the actual degree of tendon torn since a partial tear covers everything from a very minimal tear to a significant partial tear that may act more like a full thickness tear. Six weeks is a good number to remember realizing it could be less for a minimal tear. A significnat partial tendon tear may actually require surgical intervention, so check with your docotr. ...Read more

Pretty much: This is the general idea, yes.Get a more detailed answer ›
Reattach torn tendon: Tendons are located at the interface between bone and muscle. Tendon repair is performed by either reattaching an avulsed tendon to bone or by reapproximating the two torn edges of a tendon torn within the substance of the tendon itself. ...Read more
Which tendon?: Why not successful? Pleasse be specific....Get a more detailed answer ›
Depends a lot on the type of injury and specifically are we talking about an open or closed injury? I.E did the tendon get cut or has it been strained and chronically inflamed, two very different types of injury. A lot will also depend on the location and the type of treatment up to now.
Best to see a local hand surgeon for evaluation. ...Read more
Rotator Cuff Tear: If you are 31 and have a full thickness tear of your suprspinatous tendon, you have a problem. The supraspinatous is one of the 4 muscles that make up your rotator cuff. Tears at your age are unusual, often due to trauma and should generally be repaired with surgery. See an orthopaedist to get it checked out. ...Read more
Rotator Cuff: The rotator cuff tendon is a major stabilizer of the shoulder joint especially with lifting and overhead activity. Treatment is dependent upon how large the tear is and how much weakness and pain your are having. Initial treatment may consist of rest and range of motion exercises. Severe tears may need surgery. ...Read more
Not likely: Not sure why asking this question. I trained under a physican who trained with Dr. Cyriax. Friction massage is usually meant for tendinitis processes such as lateral epicondylitis or rtc tendinitis. However, I don't think that massaging healthy tissue would cause any damage. Not likely. ...Read more
Not sure...: Not sure I understand your question, but "dermatome" refers to the cutaneous distribution of sensation for a given nerve.
