Sprained Thumb- Causes and Treatment

B.P.T, M.P.T

Sprained Thumb- Causes and Treatment

A sprained thumb is a painful condition caused due to an injury on the ligament of a thumb. A ligament is a soft tissue, which connects bones to each other at a joint. The ligament might get partially or fully torn due to extreme backward bending of thumb causing the ligament connecting the thumb and index finger to suffer injury.

The problem is quite common among basketball, rugby and football players. For this reason, it is known as a sports injury. Skiing may also cause extreme pressure to the thumb, causing a ligament tear. Injury due to skiing is called skier’s thumb.

The injury causes pain, bruising and tenderness. It can cause swelling on just the thumb or sometimes on the entire hand. In severe cases, weakness and instability in the region can be seen. A sprained thumb weakens the ability to pinch and grasp things. The patient will have trouble holding a glass, turning a knob or writing. An untreated injury may lead to joint stiffness, muscle weakness, scar tissue formation, instability of the thumb or even arthritis. It is strongly advised to visit a professional therapist for an early diagnosis and treatment.

Usually, an X-ray leads to an apt diagnosis of the injury. The doctor also ascertains damage to the bone and ligament and develops a treatment plan. Some ligament tears can be treated using a splint or cast. A chronic ligament tear might not heal and would require surgical intervention.

A partial or mild ligament tear can be managed through useful home remedies like putting an ice pack, bandage or splint. It is also advised to keep the thumb elevated and restrict its movement. A heat pack is beneficial as it can ease pain and relax the muscles. However, heat pack must be avoided during the first 48 hours of injury as it can lead to bleeding.

If there is a chronic injury and the ligament is completely torn, a surgery is needed. A surgery helps join a new ligament to the bone in case the torn ligament fails to heal. It also helps reconnect the injured ligament to the bone. Sometimes, there might be bone damage as bone fragments might get pulled away with the ligament. In such cases, bone fragments need to be put back in their position through surgery. After the surgery, a cast or splint is put till it heals completely.

An early visit to a physiotherapist has potential advantages. A therapist can fasten the healing process, help relieve pain and improve a person’s ability to resume daily tasks. Massages and strengthening exercises are initiated to avoid re-injury and instill strength in the injured region. Physiotherapy also helps immensely after surgery through planned mobility exercises that regain movement and strength.

My left thigh bone is paining when I sleep at night. When I walk it feels as if my thigh bone is rubbing against something and feels painful if I step on some uneven surface. Also when I try to massage from oil I feel some growth type thing in the upper part of my thigh bone. Its very painful, my doubt was is it some swelling or serious fracture.

Considering your profession, your back pain is mostly postural. Follow these tips to get relief: 1. Take anti inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen round the clock for 5 days to decrease pain. 2. Take rest for 3 days, do your daily activities but avoid exertion. 3. When at shop, take break every 45 mins and walk for 10 mins. Avoid prolonged sitting or standing. 4. Get a chair with proper ergonomics design. Back should be supported and feet should rest on floor in the chair. Avoid forward bending and lifting weights. 5. Take calcium and vitamin d supplement. 6. Start back stretching exercises and core strengthening exercises uponce pain decreased for further details consult a pain specialist.

Dear sir, I gather you are a diabetic under medication. Metformin does lead to weight loss. I need to see your blood sugar levels and hba1c to explore the possibility of taking you off metformin. This should lead to gain in weight. Also we need to work out a dietary schedule for you that includes high intake of proteins. Will also need other report like kft. Please do discuss in detail with your physician or feel free to consult me. Thanks.

Hip Pain - 3 Exercises That Can Help You!

Hip Pain - 3 Exercises That Can Help You!

Hip pain is a very common condition that might have a variety of causes. To determine the underlying cause, it is very important to find out the exact spot of the hip pain. Any problem of the hip joint can also result in pain on the groin or the inner portion of the hip. In some cases, conditions in other parts of the body such as the lower back can also result in hip pain, this is known as referred pain.

Symptoms
Based on the underlying condition, pain in the groin, thigh and the buttocks will be the commonly observed symptoms. Pain in the groin or the back can also spread to the hip. Performing any activity can worsen the hip pain, especially if the cause is arthritis. Persistent hip pain may also cause you to develop a limp.

Here are some exercises to relieve hip pain:

  1. Bridge: The bridge is one of the best exercises to strengthen the hips and the lower back. You start the procedure by lying on your back and then lifting the hips off the floor. Hold the position till you take in a few breaths and then relax.
  2. Cat cow: The cat cow is one of the best exercises to relieve hip and lower back pain. Get down on all fours and then keep a neutral pose. Slowly push your upper back to the ceiling and hold it for two breaths. Next, bend your spine like a cow with the neck and the buttocks pushed upward and hold for another two breaths.
  3. Plank: Plank is known as the king of core strengthening exercises and with good reason. Doing a plank activates all the core muscles of the body, including muscles of the shoulder, back and the legs. Start in a push up position and then slowly lower your forearms to the ground and hold the position. Remember to keep your tummy tucked in tight and stretch the legs backward. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Physiotherapist.

Please do not take paracetamol again. I think you need to visit a local Doctor if you had Rheumatic fever/Myositis and need long term treatment. You should take Rhus tox 30 - thrice daily for next 2 weeks Continue treatment.

Hi ~use elastic bandages (such as an ace bandage) to wrap your ankle. ~wear a brace to support your ankle. ~use crutches for walking till swelling and pain subsides. ~keep your foot raised above your heart with pillows when resting or sleeping to reduce swelling. ~get plenty of rest and do not put weight on your ankle. Still you don't get relief than visit physiotherapist as physical examination /xray may be required for further investigation. Do reply for detailed treatment plan. Wishing you a good health.
