The symptoms of pain in the hip indicate of Lumbar Radiculopathy. An MRI lumbar spine is advised. Due to nerve root entrapment, there is a pain in the hip.

Using lumbar stabilization brace, hot water fermentation should help reduce the symptoms. Also, a physiotherapist will be of help to reduce the pain with the help of the therapeutic ultrasound therapy and TENS therapy.

Since it's a fracture at the D12/T12 it is advised to take complete bed rest with hot water fermentation to reduce the muscle spasm. Slow and low-intensity exercise to stabilize the core, hip muscles and thigh muscles are advised. Post recovery from the fracture of calcaneum exercise to strengthen the muscles of the foot is advised.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

i fell Sept 3 and limped around until Sept 10 when i decided to go into the ER. at the ER they took xrays and said it looked like i had fractured my ankle. they wrapped my foot up in a splint and told me to see an ortho... on Sept 14 I returned to the ER because I had not yet found an Ortho that would take my insurance and was in more pain than before (toes were tingling and a little numb - splint was not tight) they took more xrays and said they same thing and wrapped my ankle up and put a new splint on it. i am in more pain now 3 weeks after i injured my ankle and feel like i am never going to get rid of this pain. the ankle is still swollen and tender. i try to stay off of it but do not know what i should be doing. Help?
