Sound serious. There could be a number of things wrong. You should seek medical evaluation as soon as possible. You should see your own doctor or if they are not available go to a local urgent care or emergency room. READ MORE
You should strongly consider a cortisone or a PRP injection. They are both effective in my experience. PRP is more expensive. Most of the time this will resolve your problem. If it does not then surgery is highly successful with nearly 100% success rate. It can be done under local anesthesia if you do not want to have general anesthesia and it is a simple outpatient procedure. READ MORE
They can both be very effective. READ MORE
Nothing really bad. You should wear wide shoes to avoid pressure on your bunion. Unless the pain becomes disabling do not consider surgery. READ MORE
It can be very effective. In my practice we use alternatively physical therapy, chiropractic and acupuncture to help resolve these issues. Each method can be very effective in some people but does not work for everybody. READ MORE
Tennis elbow usually implies pain on the lateral side of the elbow. What you are describing is abnormality on the medial or inside the elbow. So that finding may not be the source of her pain. READ MORE
I would need to know more about how you injured your wrist. But the picture you sent shows the wrist to be swollen. You need to be examined and have initial x-rays and possibly an MRI scan to further evaluate your injury. Do not delay seeing a physician that can evaluate your problem. READ MORE
I would need to know your age. If you are under 18 years of age, you should definitely see an orthopedic scoliosis specialist. Scoliosis in itself usually does not cause pain unless it is very severe. The chance of having back pain with mild scoliosis is the same as if your back was straight. If you have scoliosis but no pain there is no need for any type of treatment. If you are an adult and have some pain the cause may be something else such as myofascial pain, facet pain, or disc pain. In this scenario, massage therapy and chiropractic can be both very helpful. However, if the pain does not resolve after a few treatments you may wish to consult a specialist to obtain x-rays and/or MRI studies to diagnose the source of your pain. If MRI studies do not show any significant pathology, you can continue chiropractic and/or massage therapy as they can be both temporarily very beneficial. READ MORE
You should try to see an orthopedic or podiatry specialist as soon as arrangements can be made. Especially as you are diabetic, you are prone to potential complications. An x-ray must be obtained to rule out a fracture. Sometimes the bleeding underneath the nail can cause excessive pain which can be relieved by making a small hole in the nail to let the blood out which will help her pain a lot. Continue elevation and when you walk use a stiff-soled shoe. READ MORE
If the pain is severe you should be evaluated in person by a qualified orthopedic specialist, podiatrist, or sports medicine specialist. Hands-on assessment is important and you may need blood tests and x-rays to be performed. If you cant get a sooner appointment I would at least get an initial evaluation at an urgent care. If the pain was not so sick you could try home remedies including warm soaks and using heel pads which are available in most pharmacies as well as over-the-counter anti-inflammatories such as Advil but by your description, you need a more urgent assessment. READ MORE
Yes, chiropractic can be helpful. It is difficult to generalize but in my experience chiropractors do a great job of rehabilitating spinal injuries such as neck or back. I think in general physical therapist do a better job of rehabilitating extremity injuries. But it comes down to finding a caring and competent provider. You can get good results with an excellent chiropractor or excellent physical therapist. READ MORE
There are many specialties that would be able to address your husband's concerns. Consider consulting with an orthopedic surgeon, physical medicine specialist, rheumatologist or sports medicine specialist. READ MORE
Surgery is rarely indicated for flat feet. Most flat feet do not cause pain and therefore there is no need for surgical correction. In the rare event that the flat foot is painful, additional evaluation is necessary including MRI and CAT scan of the foot and surgery would be considered if conservative management fails including physical therapy, orthotics, medications and lotions and acupuncture and the pain remains disabling. In that case you should consult an experienced foot and ankle surgeon. READ MORE
This is unfortunate. I do not know where you live, but nearly all over the country there are free clinics that will provide your treatment without charging you. Please check with the Department of Social Services in your area. You can also likely qualify for Medicaid if your financial condition is not good and there are methods that you can get the Medicaid almost instantaneously. Also, most children's hospitals will provide free treatment including cast application if you do not have the ability to pay. If you have tried every measure and are not successful, you can roll a magazine and then wrap that around your arm as an extra support, which will give it immobilization to allow it to heal. But please check all available avenues and I am almost certain that you can get free medical care in this situation. READ MORE
Sounds like you strained your back. Take the first usual measures. Apply ice packs for the first week and then moist heat. Take Advil but no more than 6 per day with food and/or Tylenol no more than 4 per day. Do some stretching and walk to tolerance. If the pain does not resolve or worsens seek medical evaluation. READ MORE
The pain you are describing may come from your hip joint or your lower back. You should be evaluated by someone familiar with hip and back evaluation, which can include a chiropractor, a physical therapist, sports physician, or orthopedic doctor. READ MORE
Take the usual first self-care steps. Make sure that you have proper running shoes. Make sure you are running on proper surfaces. I tell people with ankle pain to run on their high school track designed for running. Use over-the-counter anti-inflammatory such as Advil or Aleve. Taking it 1 hour before running helps. If these self-care measures are not helpful then definitely should consult with a musculoskeletal specialist. This includes a podiatrist, orthopedic doctor, physical medicine doctor or a family practitioner specializing in sports medicine. Consulting with athletic trainers and physical therapists can also be helpful.. READ MORE
I am not a neurologist therefore I cannot comment on your headaches. If you have a history of seizure disorder and headaches, I would advise you to consult a neurologist. Regarding your neck pain, I need to have more detail. There may be many sources of continuous neck pain but definitely you should consult a specialist in this regard. After examination the specialist will plan a course of treatment and diagnosis for you READ MORE
The usual cause of shoulder pain at nighttime is a shoulder rotator cuff tear or tendinitis. I am concerned because of the history of colorectal cancer and so there would be concern for metastasis causing pain. This would be ruled out by obtaining an X-ray, bone scan, and MRI study. You should consult a specialist. READ MORE
You cannot fix a truly dislocated ankle at home. If it is dislocated it needs to be relocated in the emergency room or hospital setting. Perhaps you do not have a true ankle dislocation but some other problem and therefore you should be evaluated by a specialist READ MORE
