How often should one replace their orthotics and also what is a good link or literature about proper running technique?  Heel / toe strike w/Low arch

Orthotics/Running: Barbara, I prefer with plastic based orthotic devices a 10 year replacement. Also, check out videos on Chi Running. It is very very similar to what we teach our runners.

When can I resume activities like gym, running and sports after orchiopexy(dartos pouch technique without insoluble sutures)?

When can I resume activities like gym, running and sports after orchiopexy(dartos pouch technique without insoluble sutures)?

Usually 4-6 weeks: If your orchiopexy involved an inguinal (groin) incision, then minimal 4 and closer to 6 weeks would be standard waiting period before resuming normal physical and recreational activities to allow adequate healing. If just a scrotal incision, then 3-4 weeks more likely. It is always best to check with your surgeon who is most familiar with the specifics of your problem and follow his advice. ...Read more

I purchased a peak flow meter to monitor my breathing before and after I exercise because I been having some coughing after running. Is it normal to have a reading of 350 at rest. What should I look for when exercising?

I purchased a peak flow meter to monitor my breathing before and after I exercise because I been having some coughing after running. Is it normal to have a reading of 350 at rest. What should I look for when exercising?

Prob. EIA: You almost surely have something called exercise induced asthma. You are 22. Your peak flow rate should be higher but make sure someone is watching you do it. You may be doing it incorrectly. If you indeed have EIA you can take albuterol inhaler just before running and it should stop the coughing and SOB. See your doc and learn about asthma and its management!! ...Read more

I've been running a low grade (99.1-100.1) fever after working out moderate to high intensity lately. is this normal?

Probably normal: Doctors use hard cut-offs. So in most places we don't classify fevers in adults until it is> 100.4F. When did you first check your temperature? I think most people after exercise feel hot. Was there any other reason you checked your temperature? If you're having other symptoms like weight loss, any palpable lymph nodes, rashes/lesions on your skin - go and see a doctor. ...Read more
