User :   i just want to know what is grinding because i work at a place where i can get some stuff to help it if i know whats grinding so could u please just tell me what u think is grinding
Doctor :   The Grinding is due to the Rubbing of the Bones and that is due to the fact that the Normal Bursa that is supposed to prevent it should have been injured
Doctor :   Bursa are tiny Bags that are present in Joints that would lubricate the Joint and
Doctor :   Facilitate the smooth movements hence these
Doctor :   if they are damaged will cause the kind of rubbing or the grinding sensation that you expressed
User :   so does that mean any tendons or muscles are messed up or no
Doctor :   No Bursa are separate and independent entity in your joints
User :   ok cool will it heal by itself or what would i hav 2 do so i can tell my parents
Doctor :   Yes it will heal in itself but requires rest in total and some ice packs it might need a Sling too to keep it in Specific position so it would be advisable to see the Orthopedic Doctor for the management of the condition
Doctor :   Please fill the feedback form say done when done
User :   ok cool thanks. i have 1 more problem, my friend tore the muscles completely off her hip and she isnt doing therapy like she is supposed to is there anything she can do or that i can do to help her
Doctor :   She will need to do the therapy and there will be no other alternative to it since the muscles can get into Contracture that is stiffness and then she may not be able to do specific motions
Doctor :   so it will be good if you can induce some though about this and ask her to make ti to the Hospital
Doctor :   For the Therapy
