What they like...: I have found that the interests of 'teenage boys' is so widespread that i usually tell my patients to expose them to a wide variety of sports; and let them decide. Any of the martial arts are great; running, swimming(if you have access to a pool), tennis, etc. They might want to do what a friend is going to participate in; the sky is the limit.As long as the child is interested he/she will enjoy.

6 weeks: You can start walking and climbing stairs if you need to as soon as you feel up to it. Hold off on heavy exercise for about 6 weeks, especially if you had a c-section. For an uncomplicated vaginal delivery without stitches you can start light exercise sooner, but listen to your body, if it hurts then stop doing it.

Can exercise clear out heart inflamation?
1 doctor answer • 2 doctors weighed in

Cardio conditioning: There are many causes of cardiac inflammation--infections, drug/chemo, radiation effects, excess alcohol, rheumatologic diseases, uncontrolled diabetes etc..While exercise itself does not get rid of inflammation in the heart, it may improve heart function and general health. It can help lower cholesterol/sugar, blood pressure and thus better heart-health. Other diseases must be treated. Good luck.
