Grow cartilage: Most doctors do not believe, but we actually grow new cartilage in every joint in our body, every minute of every day. You need to wear out more slowly, and grow cartilage more quickly. Glucosamine works, but for the wrist needs to be given through skin by cream, or by injection. Oral pills do not work except for knees. www.blatmanhealthandwellness.com. ...Read more

Pea size bluish bulge above elbow. injured elbow 3 weeks ago, non-displaced radial head crack. elbow'd been taped tight for 8 days.is bulge worrysome?

Begin gentle ROM: With a nondisplaced radial head fracture, I treat only with an ace and sling. After ten to fourteen days with no change in position by Xray, I start the patient on gentle active range of motion. The important thing about radial head fractures is the prolonged immobilization of the elbow may cause permanent stiffness. ...Read more

Hairline fracture to wrist feels like?

Fracture: Hairline fracture implies a mild break in the bone without displacement or angulation. While this still hurts the pain is generally not as bad as if there is a more serious injury such as a displaced or crooked fracture. Regardless the pain is generally localized with regional focal tenderness. There's often some degree of pain with range of motion of the wrist as well. ...Read more

Down on hands and knees installing flooring. Left hand/ wrist are swollen, pinky finger and palm numb, hand weak, can't open hand completely.

Down on hands and knees installing flooring. Left hand/ wrist are swollen, pinky finger and palm numb, hand weak, can't open hand completely.

Compression of nerve: which will hopefully be temporary. The usual position for a person installing flooring is to support your weight on your extended wrists. This compresses/stretches the nerves as they travel in your wrist to your hand. What you describe is serious, though. But if you stop injuring it, it should improve in a few hours...up to a day or so. Splint it. If it persists longer than 12-24 hours, go to ER ...Read more

Foosh with dislocated elbow & cracked radial head. Elbow is painfree, but wrist pain is severe. Unable to supinate or pronate & have hand weakness.
