    I was using this site to help with my PD assessment (your site will be on my bibliography)

    your site says “Do not apply for long periods. Apply cold for approximately 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off.”

    but in class we learnt that it was 20 minutes on then 1 hour off.

    which one is correct?

    i was punching our punching bag at home and was rlly pissed off. i guess i punched the bag a little bit too hard cuz i think i might’ve fractured a single bone in my wrist. but it only hurts when pressure is applyed and when i hit something to hard the same way as i did b4. it also hurts when i move my wrist to the sides. so idk if it is fractured or just as sprain?? help my mum is takin me to docs sometime to check it out.

    If your not sure what’s wrong, then GO TO A DOCTOR!!!!! I’m sick of reading about people asking other people online if whatever injury they obtained is broken or fractured or sprained. Most are NOT doctors and can’t diagnose something they can’t see anyway! If your seriously worried, then go to an emergency room and splint the injury before leaving. Oh, and if you can still type with little or no pain, your most likely fine.

    Ok I fell down my stairs today and I smashed my arm (2 inches under the wrist on the ulna side). There’s a huge bump where I got it smashed at and my wrist and that bump is bruised. I can move my wrist but it hurts. When it happened I was home alone and was going to call 911 but I didn’t. It also hurts to move my thumb too much and my fingers. My mom said it was just a bruised muscle but I was crying when she touched it. It’s also really tender. I’m going to the doctor in 3 days for an appointment.

  18. Commenting on weblogs and content directories is an excellent tactic to get backlinks. People who is aware about Web optimization understands this. I considered it will be a fantastic thing to present a listing of comments which were practically never approved to present that lean comment, substantially like lean content or any written content for that issue contains a slim-to-none possibility of finding authorized.

    retarded person that I am, I hit my wrist off a wall yesterday. I can move my hand, just a little sore but it hurts when there is pressure on a specific point on the side of my wrist. It’s swollen, but not bruised and has been the same for about 35 hours straight. I have a hockey match tomorrow with school and was wondering if I should go or should I be careful of my wrist?

    Thanks xxx

    I fell down some stairs and hit my arm on a door there was a huge bump at the time but that has now gone down. But now there is a huge bruise and when I run my finger down my arm there is a bump but you can’t see it. What shall I do. And when I’m doing stuff I always bash it and it’s really painful. What shall I do? Shall I wrap it up in a band edge for now?

  39. Tamara says:

    My daughter says that her fore arm really hurts and that it hurts to hold stuff and move it would that count as a fracture or broken bone, because I don’t think she needs to go to the ER.

    […] Itís good to start by asking your child where it hurts. If they tell you that their head hurts then gently feel their head for any obvious injury and bleeding. A bump is common and is generally no need for concern. If they arenít complaining of any pain in the arms and legs then chances are they have no injury there. If they do complain of pain to either their arms or legs you can easily examine them for possible fractures by following the directions in this past post. […]
