I am suffering from back to chest I am suffering from pain many I know what is the reason for that I need to check to doctor. Please help me I am not able to go to doctor because my exams are going on.
When a blow or a fall causes an injury, where the top of your arm bone pops out from your shoulder socket, it’s called shoulder dislocation. It is a very painful condition and you need to get this relocated to its position immediately. The tissues and bone related to that particular joint get damaged.
If you ignore this situation or keep the shoulder like this, it will be more harmful and painful for you. There may appear a bump in front or at the back of your shoulder that hurts.
What can lead to a dislocated shoulder injury?
- Sharp or a very fast twist of your arm.
- Falling down on a hard surface.
- A sudden hurt or hit.
- It may also happen when you fall down and try to save yourself using your hand. The force of the hit indirectly gets into the shoulder and your shoulder joint may slip from its place.
In some of the outdoor games, there are high chances to get hurt in the shoulder. Hockey, football, rugby, rock climbing, volleyball etc. bring in high probabilities of injuring the shoulder, thereby resulting in a shoulder dislocation.
What is the treatment or therapy of a dislocated shoulder?
The dislocated shoulder should be very urgently treated. As this injury of the shoulder is very painful, you should go to a specialized orthopaedist as fast as possible to fix up the shoulder to its proper joint. As it is very painful and swollen, the faster the treatment, the better it is. When your doctor fixes your shoulder in its actual place or the bone of your arm comes back to the socket, most of your pain will go away and you get huge relief from pain. After the shoulder bone is relocated, you can use further conservative treatment to reduce the pain and swelling of that place. Dislocated shoulder may take 3 to 12 weeks to recover. But this is the approximate time and it depends on the seriousness of the injury.
After the treatment, when all the symptoms are gone, the doctor will suggest some exercises for better results and normal shoulder movement and to prevent future shoulder injury. Ones the shoulder is dislocated, the chances of dislocation in future is further increased as the tissue supporting the head of humerus into its socket is torn. Such patients may land up with recurrent dislocation of shoulder wherein shoulder dislocates easily on specific movement and patients are afraid to do over-head activities. The problem is best diagnosed by MRI Scan.
The best treatment for this is Arthroscopic (Key-Hole Surgery) Bankart's Repair. Following operation shoulder is kept at rest for 2 weeks then Physiotherapy is started. Day to day activities are started after 2 weeks and sports activity is started after 3 to 5 months.
I have back pain since 5 days. As according to the mri report it is :- At L3-4 mild disc bulging is seen with hypertrophied facet joints causing mild indentation of lateral recesses At L4-5 diffuse circumferential bulging and posterior protrusion of disc is seen with hypertrophied facet joints causing mild indentation of thecal sac and lateral recesses. At L5-S1 diffuse circumferential disc bulging is seen with hypertrophied facet joints causing mild indentation of thecal sac and lateral recesses. The lower end of spinal cord and conus medullaris are normal. No intra spinal mass or pri/ para vertebral collection seen. Please suggest what should I do. Thank you.
I usually runs 3-4 km in the morning on daily basis but from past 15 days. I have noticed that my lower legs have some severe problem (6 inches from heel) in both legs. And this pain is so severe that it has become a hurdle in my workout. I was a overweight person about 90kgs but I managed to reduce 10kgs. I left running since last year and gave focus on weight lifting. But now I have started it again as i'm going for CBI physical test and it is necessary for me to run at least 6km daily. But how, pls suggest me something to recover from this pain.
Respected doctor I have pain in my foot from 2 years my age is 28 years please resolve my problem I also eat pain killers but no relief.
I get pain in my left hand fingers (index and middle finger) and thumb: only tips behind nail, when suddenly hit with something or get pressed. Sometime pain is also felt when I open bottle or buttoning the shirt. I feel inflammation inside like pressed by hammer. If I leave it unattended it subside at its own after 2-3 minutes. I am Vitamin D and B12 deficient and taking medicines for the same, for the last one month but no relief (Felicita-od and D-rise. I am not suffering from BP or Sugar or Thyroid etc. Which doctor should I consult? What is the name of problem? What is the treatment of this problem - Allopathic, Homeopath, Ayurvedic etc. Is it symptom of any deficiency of any vitamin?
Hello doctor, my mom is around 60 n she's been having severe knee pain for 2 years or so. I tried every thing possible. please suggest me some remedy to help her relieve from pain.
I propose that a simple back pain develops when an intervertebral disc (the fibrous pillow between the vertebrae) loses water content and stiffens. This can be caused by several factors, not least small-scale injury-either across or through the length of the spine-once the spine has become compressed. Then one of two things can happen for the problem to get worse: you can develop more serious trouble from the front compartment of the spine as the disc breaks down further. Or you can develop trouble from the back compartment as strain translates across to the facet joints. Worse still, you can get pain from both compartments at the same time. Finally, the whole sale destruction of both compartments can cause the vertebrae to jump around, in what is called segmental instability.The sequential disorder in the route of breakdown is as follows:
Stage 1: A STIFF SPINAL SEGMENT
An intervertebral disc between two vertebrae cases to be a buoyant pillow and becomes like a layer of compressed carpet. The vertebrae on top lose mobility and the segment becomes like a stiff link in the spinal chain. As it retires from activity the disc shrinks because it cannot generate sufficient suction to feed itself. Eventually, the flattening can be picked up on X-ray, but well before this point, the condition can be painful in what I believe is the most common spinal disorder.
Stage 2: ARTHRITIS OF THE FACET JOINTS
As a disc at the front of the spine drops in height it causes overriding of the bone-to-bone junctions (called the facet joints) at the back of the spine. The upper vertebrae settle down on the one below, causing bony rub between parts of the spine which could only have fleeting contact. Early on, this simply inflames the soft tissues around the facet joints but eventually, it causes arthritic change as it erodes the cartilage covering the bone. Facet joint trouble also is a relatively common form of low back pain.
Stage 3: AN ACUTE LOCKED BACK
This is a fluke incident when you are caught halfway through a movement by a pain like an electric cleaver going through your back. It makes moving in any direction excruciating and the body locks itself rigid. Although there never appears to be any warning, the problem usually has its origins in incipient disc breakdown.
All spines, even healthy ones, must brace themselves as they pass through a vulnerable part of the range at the beginning of a bending movement.If a disc between two vertebrae has flattened through the degenerative process, it may be unable to generate sufficient springing-apart tension to keep its segments stable as the spine goes over.
The top vertebrae can jump imperceptibly out of joint at one of the facets, and the muscles develop instantaneous protective spasm to stop the vertebrae going any further. As a disc progressively loses its stuffing, it bulges like a perishing car tyre whenever it takes the weight. The fibrous disc wall takes most of the strain, and in some cases, it can perish at the points of greatest duress- usually one of the back corners.
At the same time, the centre of the disc (called the nucleus) loses cohesion, after which excessive twisting and lifting activity can make it extrude through a fissure in the wall where it is weak. Sometimes the displaced nucleus lodges on a nearby spinal nerve and causes pain.
