This week’s answers:

Hi there,

I am hoping to get some clarification regarding proper procedure of a diagnostic shoulder arthroscopy.

This is in reference to a arthroscopy I had in 2011 that was intended to address complaints of night time anterior instability, biceps pain, posterior pain, and pain on the outside edge of the arm. There was also a planned distal clavical resection and subacromial decrompression based on MRI and XRAY findings.

I had a history of multidirectional instability, posterior labral tear due to a traumatic injury. It should be noted that the performing surgeon had operated on this shoulder previously, so history was known.

gambhir

Dear sir, What is your age? If your arthritis is because of old age it cant be cured. Pain can be kept under control only.

Doctor,
I am age 45 yrs and I have severe knee pain especially when I climb the stairs. I have shown to orthopedic doctors but he has suggested me it is due to lack of calcium in the body. I had taken calcium tablets for continuous 3 months but at that time I got relief. Now the pain has started again.
Kindly suggest some remedies.
Thanks and regards,
Sarala

I got injured while playing Volley ball and ended with a ligament tear on my left ankle. It’s been almost 7 months but still I have pain. Last week, I had an MRI Scan and found ligament tear still exists and no other issues (bone…etc). I am still playing the game (almost daily) with the pain.Is there any treatment (eg. physiotherapy) that can reduce the pain & heal the wound, apart from giving total rest to it.?
Kindly advise.
