Knee sprain/strain: You will need to see an Orthopedist for an exam to determine stability. An MRI should reveal what structures are injured. I would suggest reducing strenuous activity that causes significant pain or swelling until diagnosis is made. Use 20 minutes of ice and an Ace bandage for acute swelling/pain. You may also take Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain or Motrin/Aleve for pain/inflamation. ...Read more

Get re-examined: It depends. Achilles tendonitis pain in the back of the heel, are you sure that's all you are dealing with? Get re-examined.

Doc told me I have Achilles tendonitis. Last couple of weeks my heels has been painful and burning need some help on what to do?
Stretch: Typically achilles pain is from lack of flexibility combined with some life or lifestyle change. The problem with both the hamstring and calf muscles is that they cross two major joints. In the case of the achilles, it it the knee and the ankle. Therefore, achilles tendonitis is typical in people who sit too much, then try to be upright and active. Stretch hamstrings and calves 3-5x per day. ...Read more

I had a steroid injection in my knee 2 weeks ago and it's more painful now than it was before. Was to treat patella tendonitis. Should it be?
Further evaluation: I rarely ever recommend a steroid injection for a patellar tendon problem. The steroid can weaken the tendon and make it more prone to rupture. Also, steroid injections only work if there is associated inflammation. If inflammation is not present, then these injections may have more risk than benefit. I would consider obtaining a 2nd opinion. ...Read more

Which medicine is better for painful tendonitis of both hands and wrists. Motrin 800 or Mobic 15 or Tylenol 500? Or combination of any two?
Depends: Meloxicam 15 mg once daily is equivalent to Motrin 800 three times/day. These are anti-inflammatories and often better for tendinitis. They should not be taken together. However, these meds often cause more gastrointestinal problems and are not as safe for those with cardiovascular disease. Tylenol is a safe pain reliever for most but does not treat inflammation. 1000 mg up to 3 times/day. ...Read more
