What does dissecting the medial facet of the patellar mean? What was taken out? What does medial extrusion mean? I have a lot of knee pain please help

Knee cap issues: Strange terminology. The patella or knee cap is dome shaped on the underneath. The medial facet is one half of the domed underneath. I suspect they tried to clean up/smooth out some uneven cartilage due to wear and tear. Medial extrusion simply means that the tissue (usually meniscus) is protruding or bulging to one side, commonly when the meniscus is torn. ...Read more

Could you recommend exercises for someone with 'an increased valgus alignment of the calcaneus' of the right leg. how would one improve this?

You Mean A Flat Foot: This is usually treated with custom shoe inserts ("orthotics") that lift and support the arch. Try some from a local store like Rite-Aid or Walgreens. That might be enough.

I have patella tendinopathy, bursitis, hoffa fat pad oedema I've been treating with glycerine trinitrate, essentric exercises pain is worse after 3 week?

Injection: A steroid injection into the prepatellar bursa and/or fat pad could calm your symptoms and allow rehab to be more effective. I never inject the tendon itself with a steroid, due to the risk of tendon rupture. Platelet-rich plasma injections may be effective for subacute or chronic patellar tenon problems. ...Read more

Injection sometimes: If first line treatments fail some patients benefit from injection of concentrated platelets (provided from your own blood) into the damaged tendon. The effectiveness of this treatment, however, is still under investigation and insurance often does not pay for it. Still, it may be worthwhile to look into if surgery becomes the only other alternative. ...Read more

Looking at your situation from another perspective, maybe it is time to have your conditions evaluated for treatment if their symptoms limit your recreational and fitness activities. ...Read more

Bad shoulder bursitis. Heating pad, ice, ibuprofen or cortisone pills not working. Any exercises to help?  Very bad pain, cannot sleep from the pain .

Tricky: The shoulder is an incredible joint. However, with injury, we try to stop moving it. Thus, it has a tendency to stiffen up and make movement painful. It is often difficult to judge if it is the injury or the lack of movement that is more painful. Talk to your doctor and therapist and they will direct you to either push through, or rest. ...Read more
