I've Broken 2 Big Bones And With Fatigue And Pain Can't Seem To Exercise. Any Suggestions?

I had complications during my shoulder surgery and now my left hand is also numb and stiff. I had a total knee replacement after breaking my tibial plateau and being plated first. My left humerus was broken and also plated before they removed it due to severe credits and they put a titanium shoulder in instead thus damaging a nerve and injuring my hand. I'm in bad shape. My doctor is getting ready to put me on a good… read more

Cartilage Loss

Cartilage Loss

I have bone on bone in both knees. I’ve been struggling with a lot of pain. I take really strong painkillers and they don’t seem to help at all. I’ve been using laser therapy every day until recently. I stopped the laser therapy because the therapist was not sure if it was helping and I had just received off load braces for both knees. (Thank goodness medical coverage paid for them) so the therapist wanted me to try just using the braces and not the laser to see if there was any less pain. The… read more

What treatment or advice have other people had?

Does Anyone Have Pain In Their Hips Due To Yoga Movements?

Does Anyone Have Pain In Their Hips Due To Yoga Movements?

The only time I experience hip pain is with leg lifts when lying down and other yoga movements. I modify movements to keep that pain at bay. Walking does not cause a problem. This is very frustrating, as I know yoga is very beneficial.

Ugh. I don’t need another medical issue, but you’re probably right. I have not had good experiences with chiropractors. I’m just guessing some kind of… read more
