What is the best treatment for thoracic herniated or bulging discs?


I've had this injury for about 4 years now and injured it further after childbirth. It is T-7 through T-8. I've had 2 cortisone injections with minimal help. I have an almost 1 year old daughter who is only going to get heavier and it kills me to go about my daily tasks as a SAHM. Please help! thank you.

What would a person with thoracic scoliosis look like if it occurs around the neck?


Just wanted to know what it would look like to have thoracic scoliosis in a photo?
----------

Thoracic Scoliosis is more in the upper back, cervical Scoliosis is more in the neck area. It could look like it is in the neck area since it is very close, or it could also be a high thoracic curve.

Here is a picture of all the sections of the spine including the thoracic Spine I hope it helps.

What hip injuries can you get from falling off a horse?


Aside from breaking the hip, what bad injuries can a person get in their hip from falling off a horse?

I'm writing a story, and I want my character to have a bad hip injury that would lead to complications -- possibly arthritis or something. Can anyone suggest something?

Thanks very much!
----------

Falling off a horse sideways and landing on their side. Could result in a dislocated hip causing arthritis or hip joint deterioration.

Thrown off to the front (flipping over the horse's head) they could shatter their pelvis, tailbone or vertebrae.

Thrown off to the rear (due to the horse rearing up) the horse could flip over and the saddle horn could cause severe internal damage to organs etc. due to the full weight of the horse landing on them.  (+ info)

What are some severe and serious accidents and injuries that can occur in American football?


I need serious, serious injuries with as much details on such injuries as possible. Near fatal injuries.


I am working on a story, and need this information for what is going on in it. If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks so much.
----------

Well, broken bones, namely femurs, tibias, humerus, collar bones, which could have all the potential side effects, such as hemorrhage, or fatty emoblism (which could lead to a pulmonary embolism, i.e. near death).

Other types of hemorrhage, namely in the abdominal area which could lead to drastic blood loss. And then there's intracranial hemorrhaging, which could lead to death.

Also, there was the story of that kid who died secondary to heat exhaustion/dehydration, but that's very uncommon. Near death injuries are actually uncommon in general in football, hence all the padding :) Hope that helps.  (+ info)

What are possible injuries someone could get playing soccer?


I have played soccer forever but i was just wondering what kind of injuries a person could get. I've never gotten hurt and I don't want to but I was just wondering what could happen. Thanks!
----------

Ah, good ol' game of Soccer. Nothing like it.

• Sprained/Broken Ankle. In the game of soccer, you must balance the ball, look at your surrounding opponents, and try to make it in the goal (depending on your position). That's a lot to do. With so much going on, you an easily trip and fall, land on your ankle, and bam. Out for the rest of the season.

• Broken Leg. Same applies for this. One wrong move when you're falling, and crack. Your leg, and you, are out of there!

• Torn Ligaments. You'd be surprised how often this happens. This is one of the most horrible pains... lemme tell you.

• Sprained/Broken Wrist. When you're falling, you're going to try and block the fall with something, and most likely, you're going to catch yourself with your hands. Well, depending on the impact of the fall, and depending on your clumsiness, you might just end up with one of these.

• LOTS AND LOTS OF BRUISES. It pretty much explains itself.

• Concussions. It happens in almost every sport, and it can most certainly happen in Soccer.

• Cuts/Scrapes/Blood. It kind of comes with the sport if you ask me.

And, well. A lot of things can happen in Soccer, really. But these are some things to keep in mind when you're thinking injuries.

And oh! Sore muscles. You can pull your muscles, too. Not the best feeling.

Anyways, good luck!  (+ info)

How many injuries are there related to knee joint?


I want to know how many injuries are there related to ligaments of the knee? Can you provide me a list of these injuries? What are the symptoms of these injuries?
----------

in the knee there are four ligaments, the anterior cruciate, the posterior cruciate, the lateral collateral and the medial collateral ligaments. injuries to these can include a partial sprain or a complete rupture. Typically when injured there is a lot of swelling and considerable pain in the area. the severity of the sprain is described using degrees. 1st degree would be a minor sprain, which would still allow for walking and use of the limb, but there would be some pain and a little bit of inflammation. A second degree sprain can range from moderate pain and swelling to a more serious amount of pain, swelling and joint instability. The person may or may not be able to walk, or would need crutches or a walking aid to get around. Rehabilitation may include surgery or strengthening of the surounding musculature. A third degree sprain is a rupture of that ligament. this would result in instability of the joint and surgery would be required to safe guard the knee.  (+ info)
