Whenever I try running I feel this sharp pain in my shins after some time that compels me to stop running coz I feel like the bone is about to break?

Shin pain: Shin pain is not uncommon to runners, and has many factors. The following can be reasons for shin pain: improperly fitting shoes, improper stretching/warm up, poor running form, and running too far too soon. In addition, I would seek medical evaluation to make sure there are no "shin splints" or small fractures. I would also find a good running supply store to be properly fitted for running shoes. ...Read more

You should not add more than 10% of weekly mileage per week. Make sure to rest. Crosstrain. ...Read more

What is wolf's law? If it is true then will running everyday make my leg bones tougher?

What is wolf's law? If it is true then will running everyday make my leg bones tougher?

True and untrue: Julius wolffe was german surgeon & anatomist who noticed bones get stronger and denser in animal or person if a heavier load is placed on that bone. The bone itself changes architecture to adapt. Wollf's law is from 1892 & was a very important observation. Problem is, you can overload a bone too--stress fractures happen. Bones are attached to joints--load bone & ruin associated joints. Be wiser. ...Read more

Wrist has been swollen for 3 days. Pain on day 1 starting @ pinky & going down wrist. @ times it feels like a knife running down my wrist bone.

Wrist swelling: Wrist swelling in absence of acute injury is consistent with arthritis. The little finger involvement is unusual but the nerve could be impinged or one of its joints could also be inflamed. Apply cold applications and, if you can take them, anti-inflammatory medications like Advil or Aleve should reduce swelling and inflammation. If symptoms persist see your MD who will order appropriate tests. ...Read more

I have pain in my ankle bone down to the arch area. I'm running regularly, what could be the likely cause? Thanks.

Tendonitis: The tibialis posterior tendon is a large tendon that runs the course from the inside of the ankle into the bump of bone in the mid arch. Overuse of this tendon can cause pain and inflammation. Underlying flat foot structure is a big predisposing factor as is overtraining and poor shoegear. Additional arch supports, new shoes and nsaids are helpful. Don't wait on this, if not resolving see dr soon. ...Read more

I had an ulna bone osteotomy and tfcc repair. How long is recovery? When can I start exerciseing again, walking, running, leg weights ect?

Ask your surgeon: Arthroscopic tfcc repair (w/ ulnar shortening)may require several months (3-4)before full athletic activity can resume. The osteotomy must obviously heal before u can lift weights and resume raquet sports and golf. Before we release our patients to these sports the ostetomy must heal;and motion and strength of upper extremity be nearly equal to non- op. Wrist. See your ors for activities ucan do now. ...Read more
