Re: L5/S1 Disc Herniation

I'm willing to bet that if you tell your surgeon that you are getting significantly better and that the symptoms are going away, he/she would agree on holding off on the surgery.

If it gets worse...

Re: Leg numbness

Possibly. Keep doing whatever you are doing. If the progress stalls out or starts heading the other way again, get back to the drawing board.

Re: Leg numbness

CES is Cauda Equina Syndrome. This is not something you have. It is something that every provider needs to be mindful of when evaluating a patient with weakness and numbness in their legs. Think of...

Re: Leg numbness

I didn't say he had CES, I only mentioned that he could be developing it, or could go on to develop it in the future.

When treating patients with these types of injury patterns it is important to...

Re: Leg numbness

Agreed, however, symptomatic relief does not exclude further impingement of the nerve root. Symptoms may wax and wane with stretching and increase/decrease of local inflammation. My point is that...

Re: Leg numbness

However, a rotated SI joint does not explain the motor weakness or the sensory deficits in the leg.

You may have some temporary relief of these symptoms from the stretching, but the underlying...

Re: Eye Injury

You need to be seen by someone that can look at the eye properly and determine if any damage has been done. Sooner not later.

Either the ER or your ophthalmologist. If you have a corneal abrasion...

Re: Latissimus Dorsi

Interesting read Brent. Thanx for the links.

Parts of the Lat are superficial, but other parts are are rather deep. I say this knowing that I can be a full finger-length in depth into someone's back...

Brent, that's something I have never heard of in close to 25 years of treating these injuries. I would love to read the research that espouses this idea, where can I find it?

are they putting out enough effort,

Re: Meniscus Problem?

Maybe it would be good if you went ahead and put a full history of your complaint out for us to read.

It seems that each post gives out new and significant information.

Is there a reason you have...

Re: Meniscus Problem?

Starting to get a full picture.

The partial tear of the quad tendon can produce what is called a "Pseudo-Buckling" of the knee. Essentially it may not be strong enough to hold the knee stable....or...

Re: Meniscus Problem?

Sitting cross-legged is similar to the position a person is in during McMurray's test, but that hardly equates to a positive test.

McMurray's test is a very specialized test and will not be positive...

Hey Arturo, glad to hear that you are doing well. Take it slow and you should do just fine.

Re: Shoulder MRI results = Surgery

SLAP Tear, (Superior Labrum Anterior to Posterior), is a tear of the labrum that usually involves the anchor point of the bicep tendon. The classification system is tedious, and probably not all that...

Re: Shoulder MRI results = Surgery

Open repair vs closed repair is a huge topic of debate.

Arthroscopic repairs are fairly new and have only now begun to catch on in the world of orthopedic surgery. Certainly more and more surgeons...

Re: Shoulder MRI results = Surgery

Very close Brent.

The decision to do the surgery open vs. arthroscopically all depends on the surgeon's preference/ability. We do all of our repairs arthroscopically, some do open. I know a few...

Re: Leg turning blue while standing after a fibula fracture

Sorry Chris, didn't mean to misconstrue your post. It seemed at the time as though you were pointing out that I was making bets and taking risks in a "gamble" with someone else's health.

Re: Leg turning blue while standing after a fibula fracture

That's the crucial part though. Think of all the tiny veins and venules as the highway to the bigger veins. If those little vessels are broken, hundreds of them, then there will be significant edema....

Yeah, sure, put a coke on it.

Seriously, the "bet" is that there is nothing wrong.

The person has a real and legitimate medical problem, and must treat it as such. If the OP feels that there is a...

I understand your position, it is well thought out, but I disagree that it is going to dramatically effect healing time.

After a fracture and the tearing of any tissue during the injury, the small...

How does venous backflow, if that is what is going on, dramatically effect healing time?

Re: Reoccuring Shoulder Problems from Pressing

This is a great description of how your shoulder feels. Unfortunately I hear this a lot from people who have labrum/SLAP tears. The progression of weekness to pain to a feeling of instability makes...
