    Do you have any pain with resisted internal rotation or adduction? Test it at different angles of abduction. It could be a torn teres major or lat.

    I think you posted in another section so I've copied my same reply here: I assume these fractures were in the thoracic spine? I'd say given the proximity of the CT and the manipulations, there's a good chance of the maneuver causing the fractures. It would help to know which manipulation was done. For example, a prone technique would make it more likely. Did your mom notice any unusual pain with twisting or bending after the treatment?

    Here at a major hospital in Canada, we put ice from a machine into a plastic bag and throw it away when done. Infection control has no problem with it. In fact, I think a reusable ice pack is more likely to spread infection.

    How acute is the injury? Personally I wouldn't put too much pressure on the injured area in the acute phase, although light touch could be soothing. A good physio should know how to treat at different stages of recovery.

    In January 2019 my mum in law started getting pain in her back (thoracic area on the right side) with no history of trauma. She attended a physio who provided exercises and carried out manipulations (exact details unknown). After these she felt her pain moved more centrally but thought no more about it at the time. The physio then suggested she may have Osteoporosis. A dexa scan followed and showed 3 compression fractures but all other investigations were well within normal limits, including...

    Hi Wilfred, I suggest that you have a Right Sacroiliac problem and probably some lower back involvement. As you have obviously realised. This will give you local pain plus referred pain into the groin and medial aspect of the upper thigh. It will eventually radiate into the posterior calf and then into the right foot. The problem may eventually radiate into the Left side of the lower back and then as described re the right side and leg. Treatment should range from mobilisation of the...

    Hi I have had a period of shoulder pain radiating into neck head and jaw or vice versa and had a time where my shoulders and hands were stiff. It was tiring to hold hair dryer. This has now been better since two months with no issue holding my hand up, only intermittent neck shoulder pain, no constant stiffness etc. But my shoulder looks like this. Is this normal that there is a dent below the clavicle or is this atrophy? Here are photos from back Imgur: The magic of the Internet The...

    Hi All, I've had really bad pain in my wrists on and off for about 14 years now so any nudge in the right direction would be make you a hero in my eyes! At 16 (31 now) I first had a ganglion cyst in my right wrist on the dorsal side, right on top of the wrist in the middle'ish. Unfortunately the doctor decided to whack it with a book to pop it. After that it came back twice in the next year and I drained it myself (wasn't going back to the doctor after that), it hasn't been back visually...

    Hi, Dave! That's only a speculation, though the psoas also stabilizes the spine when the foot is planted. The iliacus stabilizes the pelvis when the foot is planted. Combined they become the iliopsoas and flex the hip (lift knee toward chest) when not weight bearing.To adequately stretch, spine must be stabilized and hip extended. Not talking about you, but people often do not stretch psoas correctly. Can also have spasm due to a problem with your back or sacroiliac joints. Can also have...

    Hi, Joebloom! Have you ever had any kind of injury to your back or SI joint area at any point in your life? Any falls, car accidents, herniated discs, sports injuries, or other trauma at all? If it's a hip flexor, then have some anti-inflammatory medications prescribed by your doc. Another way to relieve hip pain is by holding ice to the area for about 15 minutes a few times a day. Try to rest the affected joint as much as possible until you feel better, change your bedding if needed (7...

    Hi, systemd98! So sorry to hear that you have such problems. It can be so beneficial at times and at other times be potentially destructive. I have done PT generally directly after surgery or after a flare up. But I limit the time I will spend with them. The initial sessions are generally not aggressive enough to hurt anyone. But as sessions continue (could be 2,3, or 4 weeks), they tend to move to more aggressive actions. You should talk to your doctor first to know his/her opinion. PT...

    Hi, sdkachif! I believe, there's no such thing like an ultimate solution. As alophysio already mentioned, it depends on weight of a person and preferred sleeping position. Generally our advice is to have a medium firm mattress with a high spring count. A soft pillow top can be useful if you/your patient are particularly thin or sensitive in your/his/her bony areas. For instance, before and after surgery, I found a firm bed with a foam overlay is best to sleep on. You need that softness but...

    Hi, Someguy! First of all, do you work with a personal trainer? If no, I'd check your program to reduce possible mistakes. Maybe there's a poor posture or wrong stance involved. I also know that prior injuries/surgeries cause muscle asymmetry, so if your technique is fine, that could be the reason. But need to mention, I'm not a professional trainer, so I'd recommend you to ask for some recommendations from your local trainers.

    Hi, Ress! And thanks for sharing these workouts. I can add some general tips for desk workers. - Try to take a walk around the office every hour or so just to get your body moving. With a consistent workout schedule, you should have a lot less risk getting something than someone who works out once a week but again, everyone is different. Walking or going to the gym during lunch helped me a lot just because it's in-between movement that my body needs. - Also, is there any way you could...

    I don’t think either are suspects unless of course your shoulder moved like this before the recent issue. Hearing a crack indicates an acute injury, even if on top of a longer standing deterioration of a tendon like the supraspinatus. You should not be training at all on the shoulder until it’s accurately diagnosed as right now the movement is dysfunctional and will lead to other issues (like a ‘frozen shoulder’ type scenario). An MRI would be the best option. A dynamic MRI even better.

    Looks to me like your humeral head moves up and anterior during the external rotation in an abnormal way. This suggests a structure that is involved in maintaining the position of the head is damaged in some way. This could even be an internal rotator that was working with the lats in an inner range of a single arm pull-up. Having said that there are a lot of possible structures. Really you need an MRI of the shoulder and upper humerus to look at all tendons, including the biceps. The video...

    SORRY FOR MY BAD ENGLISH. I'M A SPANIARD. On April 1, 2019 (date of the pathology). I was training one arm pull-ups, and during the end of the concentric phase of the movement I noticed a "crack" in the shoulder area (I was doing negative repetitions helped with an elastic band); I noticed a diffuse pain in the back area of ​​the shoulder and stopped training (since then I have not worked out again). I stopped training and continued with my normal life; a week, the pain went down...

    Hi All, I'm looking into Ice Packs and do we still have a requirement for them in hospitals and clinics. A lot of colleagues are switching to Ice-making machines to reduce costs, waste and be more flexible in treatments. (Not to mention cooling their drinks in the summer) Some hospitals are refusing to go down the ice making route thanks to IPC (Infection prevention control) leads objecting. Just wondered what the views out there were. Also if you do use ice-packs are there any...
