Pain releif creams are meant for temporary relief only (2-4 hrs), the cause has to be found and treated. Avoid bending forwward and sit straight, do hot fomentaion but best is to consult an orthopedic surgeon.

Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.

I have consulted a doctor. She just said that I have spine congestion. I didn't know what she meant. Can I know what spine congestion means and is there any serious problem or any health risk. I frequently get neck pain and migraine.

In spinal congestion of acute character, with pain, hyperaesthesia, cramp, and spasm, the bromides have proved so far useful as to merit always a fair trial.n true cerebro-spinal meningitis - though a very fatal disease under any treatment - I have seen great advantage from bromides, but like all depressant remedies they must be used with caution, for there is liability to sudden failure of the circulation from conditions of the disease itself. Subject to the same caution, I think it desirable to conjoin aconite or belladonna throughout the treatment.

Wrist Fracture - Understanding Causes and Symptoms

Wrist Fracture - Understanding Causes and Symptoms

Wrist fracture is a medical term used to describe a broken wrist bone. Wrist is composed of 8 small carpal bones and lower ends of the two forearm bones, such as Radius & Ulna. The fracture may occur in any of the 10 bones that make up the wrist. While some fractures can be severe, most fractures are tiny in nature. The fractures, which are severe, tend to render the bone unstable and a cure for this condition might require a surgery. Open fractures occur when the broken bone spike juts out through the skin. This might lead to an infection in the wounded region.

Causes of Wrist Fracture

  1. The most basic cause of a wrist fracture is injury. Any fall on your outstretched hand (FOOSH) and you might have to nurse a fractured wrist. This type of fracture is common among sportsmen. 
  2. People suffering from osteoporosis have a high risk of getting a wrist fracture. 
  3. Traumatic accidents might also cause severe wrist fractures. 
  4. Repetitive use of wrists leads to inflammation of the tendons present in the wrists (tendonitis). 

Symptoms of Wrist Fracture

A wrist fracture has symptoms that can be extremely painful. The pain escalates whenever you try to move your wrist or flex it, even if you are just flexing your fingers. Sometimes your hand or arm may even become extremely numb when you fracture the wrist. The muscles in the area become tender and swell up. It is almost impossible to move the wrist after it gets fractured. The fracture causes the wrist or rather the hand to appear deformed. The most common deformity being a Dinner fork deformity (Colles' Fracture). The area around the fracture may experience bruising and a fractured wrist also affects the blood flow in the area. You might even injure your ligaments, tendons, muscles or nerves. 

To confirm and check the level of severity, you are generally asked to get an X-Ray done. In order to get a more detailed look at the fracture, you might have to undergo CT or MRI scans as well. Usually, in order to treat a fracture, you will have to wear a splint or a cast and move your hand as least as possible. But keep moving your fingers otherwise they might get stiff. 

Most cases of wrist fractures recover well with a very good return to function.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
