Why Is My Knee Not Getting Better And How Long Should I Rest It Before Rehab
Impossible to know: Without more detail, it's not possible to tell you why your knee is not improving. Knee conditions arise from a variety of reasons, and we would need an understanding of the cause of your knee issue, an examination of your knee, and possibly an x-ray. It is best to make an appointment with your primary care provider for further evaluation, treatment or referral to a specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have got CRPS and my knee keeps dislocating. Should I get a knee immobiliser? How long should I have it on for and do I need it all the time? Thanks
Until you are strong: CRPS isn't associated with knee dislocation, so be sure your PCP doesn't think something else should be done. Stronger muscles will help prevent recurrent dislocation ( or more likely, subluxation of the kneecap) but a flexible or hinged sleeve will help until you can build up strength..which I know is hard with CRPS. Keep trying!! ...Read more

How long does it take for peroneal tendonitis to heal? I had pretty bad pain, it got better with pt, and now it feels irritated again...
It can take a while: It will not heal well taking cortisone or nsiads . You are taking symbicort (budesonide and formoterol). That will stop the tendon from healing and it may actually cause the tendon to rupture once it has been injured. See you doctor about getting off those meds. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I sprained my ankle last Thurs. It is still painful to get down to the floor. My job is a cleaner. Can u tell me how long I should feel better.
Sprained ankle five months ago and still doesn't feel well. I can't dance or run on it at all. What should I do to make it feel 100%? Is it too late?
See ORS: Residual pain and / or instability 5 months after an ankle sprain is not normal. See an ors for evaluation. Sometimes u may have a small 'chip' on your talus, 'scar tissue' forming in your ankle( impingement) or an incompletely healed ankle ligament. Exam, x-rays and MRI can differentiate. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I damaged my tfcc 4 months ago. Its healing very slowly. How long do I have before its to late to get surgery and will a cast make any difference.
Depends: Tfcc injuries (a form of wrist sprain) can take some time to heal. Sometimes they do not heal. If you still have symptoms after 4 months of treatment and therapy, you nay need surgical intervention. I usually try an injection first. See a wrist specialist for an evaluation and diagnosis. Then consider your options in light of the surgeon's recommendations. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
