Some activity: You do not have to have a specific injury to cause a meniscal tear.

"Split PL tendon"-I would start w/ a boot or brace, maybe PT. If it does not get better and it hurts, may need repair. Good luck! Dr. Latva ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Injured rotator cuff almost torn in half and my bicep tendon muscle ruptured surgery now trigger finger problems. Normal?
Yes: That sounds pretty typical. The biceps tear and rotator cuff tear occurs together as part of the same degenerative process. The tears (along with the surgery) cause swelling that involves the entire hand. The swelling and inflammation makes trigger fingers worse by swelling the finger tendons that no longer fit through their tendon sheaths. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Ankle MRI report - ant tib tendon bowing, tendonitis in ant tib, tenosynovitis in posterior tib, mild tendonitis in Achilles'. Best treatment?
Cold compresses help: I have found that tendinitis frequently responds to application of cold compresses, particularly gel devices kept in a freezer which when applied to tendinitis will cut the inflammation down and provide comfort without the potential side effects of listed medications (which help as well but can cause considerable side effects). Such gel devices can be found in drug stores (OTC). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hand injury in may diagnosed as a bruise a few months later diagnosed as torn tendon still very painful how long does it take to heal?
If it is a tendon: it may take months to heal, provided you have adequate brace to support it while it does. Tendons are notoriously slow things to heal because of the poor blood supply to them. If you are sure it is not completely torn through and require surgery to tack it back. Keep a close relationship with your Hand Orthopedist while it heals. Good luck and thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
