Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, December 17, 1971 By Jeane Dixon SATURDAY, DEC. IS Your .birthday today: Healthy growth, normal give-and-take are the most proba- ble characteristics of your coming year. Your enterprises include at least one project with unsuspectedly LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D- Tendon injuries need time to heal Dear Dr. Lamb - I am a track runner. Wljle running this past summer I hurt my Achilles tendon. I rested for one week and then tried to run but it hiu't so I rested for two weeks, bathing the ankle in warm water and epson salts. I am running now but there is the same pain in the tendon connecting the calf muscle with the heel. It is also kind of stiff. I am wondering if this could develop into permanent or serious injury if I continue to run. How can this be quickly and properly healed? . What steps should I take to insure this won't recur-? Dear Reader - These are often very difficult to treat. As long as the problem persists you simply can't run. You may have an inflammation around the tendon or an injury to the muscle where it attaches. Some doctors have reported success by injecting the area with cortisone, or with Novocain, then gently stretching the muscle. More than one injection may be necessary to obtain relief. Short of that I can only recommend heat, rest and gentle movement to gradually help regain full movement of the ankle. Poor running habits contribute to the problem. Be sure when you run that you let your heel take most of the body weight, not the toe. If you run with your toe reaching out first, let' the foot sink to catch the weight on the heel. A lot of people get similar problems from jogging and running in excess of their level of fitness and through using their toes. Rest of the ankle is absolutely necessary. Walking however may help regain function earlier. Dear Dr. Lamb - First may I say your column is very in- teresting. I was wondering if you would enlighten me on what really is heart convulsions? Wouuld you say they are dangerous? What causes them and what treatment is given? My mother, who is 57, has these quite often but went to a doctor only once. I am in favor of her going to a heart specialist. Dear Reader - There are several things you could mean. When the heart beats so slowly that there is inadequate ciruc-lation to the brain, a convulsion occurs. Another condition is a gross irregularity of the heart to the point that it can't pump blood. This causes those dramatic "cardiac arrests" you have probably seen on TV. These don't recur very often since they are fatal unless there is immediate medical assistance. Less complex irregularities may cause symptoms and would require an examination to identify. In any case you are right, she should go see a heart specialist.
