What causes hands and fingers to cramp up and immobilize painfully?

This problem can be caused by an under active thyroid. However cramping can also be the result of mineral and salts deficiency, however what ever the cause it may be wise to consult a physician if the problem persists. Many people would put this down to a problem with arthritis, however that would not be consistent with an arthict problem as arthritis is a joint disease which can attack muscle but will not cause cramping.

most likely arthritis. there are water therapy classes, check out the arthritis foundation. focuses on movement of all joints with minimal resistance created by warm water. the water must be 86 degrees. check out pools near you as well. the arthritis instructor could be of some help. a doctors opinion would be good as well.

Your questions wasn't specific enough but i get that sometimes. I'll stretch my legs and straighten them as much as possible then my toes start to cramp up and i cant move them any more.. TEMPORARILY though. for maybe 10-30 seconds and man does it hurt. I'm guessing its your muscle being stretched farther then it is used to or then it can and it starts to stop working to get you to relax.

What is plantar extension?

Someone probably meant dorsiflexion aka pulling the toes closer to your shin.

Its counterpart would be plantar flexion, hence the idea of plantar extension.

Tbh, i also prefer the term of plantar extension, due to its clear indication that we are talking about something close to the foot; dorsum could be misinterpreted here as the back of the torso. (Even though for anatomists, the word dorsiflexion is reserved for ankle movement only.)

Do bone spurs feel like walking on broken glass?

Answer

Bone spurs feel alot like that. If it takes you awhile to get out of bed and on your feet. It's time to see the foot Doctor. It may be fallen arches. A common problem and pretty easy to fix.

-------------

Heel spur pain is often most intense after long periods of rest from being on your feet. Morning heel spur pain is often the most severe type of heel spur pain. The reason for this is: As you move during the day, the nerves surrounding the heel spur adjust around the spur so that the heel spur is not digging into them. After long periods of rest, such as when sleeping, the nerves relax back into their normal position. Thus, when you get out of bed in the morning, pain can become intense as you are putting weight on the heel for the first time causing the heel spur to be pushed into the sensitive nerves and tissues.

What would cause swollen hands and wrists?

It could be early symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome (compression of the median nerve) or other more serious diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. Go see a doctor who can help put your wrists in a brace and check to see if you need surgery. If swelling lasts more than 6 weeks, it's definitely a cause for worry.
Possibly diabetes. Or water retention.

What things in gymnastics uses your right hand?

Everything in gymnastics requires your both of your hands, to an extent. If you were to lose one of there hands, however, you would still be able to preform gymnastics. On floor you can do one-handed backhand springs and front handsprings. On highbar you can do one-handed swings and giants. You could not efficiently preform rings, parallel bars, or pommel horse however. Vaulting would be a challenge too, but you could overcome it!

Good luck!!

Sources: I am a gymnastics coach and have been doing it for 6 years now.

What is a heel spur?

It's a bone spur that builds up where the ligament(s) attach to the bone. It can be very painful. =What Causes a Heel Spur to Develop?= Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body but may also be the most deficient. The amount of calcium that we absorb from our food varies widely. Our age is one factor. An adolescent may absorb up to 75% of the calcium obtained from foods, while in adults the maximum absorption rate ranges from 20% to 30%. Even though our bones feel solid and seem permanent, they're just like any other body tissue- they're constantly being broken down and formed again. In an adult, 20 percent of bone calcium is withdrawn from bones and replaced each year. Thus, every five years the bones are renewed. Calcium is found in the extra cellular fluids and soft tissues of the body where it is vital to normal cell functioning. Much of the calcium in soft tissues is concentrated in muscle, although it is contained in the membrane and cytoplasm of every cell. When the body is deficient of calcium it begins to leach calcium from the bones. In many people this happens to be in the heel of the foot or some other weak area of the body. As the calcium is being leached, it forms an eruption (similar to a volcano). This eruption is the bone spur. A bone spur in the heel is called a heel spur.

How does peripheral neuropathy affect daily life?

I am a 36 year old female that has an idiopathic peripheral neuropathy. I have had this disease since 1999. Not only is this disease physically draining it is mentally draining as well. It causes ulcers, blisters, toenail loss, chronic pain, and for me depression. I can no longer work because I can't stand or sit for long periods of time..what job does that leave? The pain is very draining, especially at night. The side effects from medications aren't any walk in the park either. And the questions...i.e. how can you have pain if you can't feel your feet!!! Uggg, that gets old. The book Numb Toes anc Aching Soles helped me and my neurologist did too. Good luck to anyone suffering from any type of neuropathy.

Symptoms

What are the symptoms of ankle bone hairline fracture?

Most fractures that aren't compound in nature first and foremost hurt like hell; second, they always swell up a lot; and depending on the severity, they may or may not bruise, but usually if the bone is fractured bruising does occur - at least it has in every fracture I've ever had, and that's quite a few.

The only way to determine for sure of course is with an X-ray, but they normally want you to wait until the swelling goes down before taking it as swelling impedes the picture of the bone. Many X-rays in the past that were taken immediately after an injury would show no fracture, but on re-examination and another X-ray after swelling had gone down, the fracture would be seen. That's why today they usually make you wait before taking one if you're swollen as they know the picture won't be as accurate.
