What do you suggest if I am 16 yrs old. I can do 50 pushups maybe 60 and 40 knuckle push ups, any exercises for me strengthen my arm?

Pushups: Maybe add some pull-ups and free weights in increasing amounts... start with more reps and lower weights to make sure you do not hurt yourself. Start with biceps/triceps and wrist flexion and extension. Never train only one 'side' of an extremity... always do the agonist and antagonists equally much. Good luck!

Do knuckle push ups on the floor without mat hurt the bone or cause Osteoporosis?

Do knuckle push ups on the floor without mat hurt the bone or cause Osteoporosis?

Possibly: As with any physical activity, if doing it hurts, then you should try to find a way to do it without causing pain. I would advise using some type of cushioning material to avoid injuring your hands while doing push ups on the floor. Over time, you could cause injury to your fingers / joints.

How long does it take to heal and recover completely after the metal plate is removed from 5th metacarpal bone? After I recover I want to do is: 1. Karate 2. Knuckle Push Ups 3. Hand Grip Exercises

It varies.: You can start "hand grip exercises" as soon as ordinary activities are comfortable. Ideally these should be part of a general physical therapy recovery program Knuckle push ups and karate can subject your hand to extreme (and, in the case of karate, unpredictable) forces. You must get clearance from your ortho doc or physical therapist before resuming these activities

Even after completely recovering from Boxer's Fracture, Is it risky to do knuckle push ups, punching sandbags etc. While having metal plate placed on your 5th metacarpal bone?

Even after completely recovering from Boxer's Fracture, Is it risky to do knuckle push ups, punching sandbags etc. While having metal plate placed on your 5th metacarpal bone?

Not really: If you healed completely, they will be no restrictions on your boxing, or any activity associated with it. The metal plate is permanent, unless it start causing any problem, but it will not be a reason to restricted your activities.

Without knowing: The true status, location, scar status, point at which you've recovered motion, strength and all the factors that your treating surgeon or therapist would know from treating you is is hard specifically answer that question. In general yes, BUT you really need to ask them

Why is it when I do one hand push-ups my entire spine cracks? Is it bc of the stress on the back?

Probably no problem: Cracking sounds in joints can be seen in arthritis but if you aren't having symptoms I would not worry about it. Why are you on Motrin?

My wrist pops when I rotate it, and when I push my hand backwards my wrist hurts. Or when I do pushups it hurts quite a bit?

My wrist pops when I rotate it, and when I push my hand backwards my wrist hurts. Or when I do pushups it hurts quite a bit?

Not Sure: The wrist is a complex joint and can often pop when moved in different directions. If the occassional popping does not hurt, don't worry about it. However, painful popping even without an injury can be due to several problems such a overuse, ligament strain or joint laxity. Do push ups with the wrist straight to avoid pain. Wrist is very weak when maximally extended.

Hyperextended: You may have hyperextended your wrist if in the push up position and/or developed what is commonly known as a a repetitive strain injury (if you have been doing lots of push ups/yoga etc). Sometimes we just overuse a small joint that isn't used to it or accidentally put too much stretch in the joint - leading to inflammation in the tendons. Try icing 20 min as needed and give your wrist rest.

Tfcc injured. After 2 months with a splint I can do pushups without pain. Is this a good thing? Still hurts when I rotate my hand to the limit.

Wrist injuries: The splint immobilized your wrist and allowed scar tissue to help heal it. Your wrist seems to be healing, based on your ability to do pushups. See your physician or physical therapy for further evaluation of the hand rotation. If the wrist is unstable but you don't want surgery, then the surgeon may put a cast on your wrist and forearm.

Possible to pushup, pullup or any chest workout with dislocated hand? Not able to throw a ball with force from shoulder. Please advice. Will Gyming cure?

Possible to pushup, pullup or any chest workout with dislocated hand? Not able to throw a ball with force from shoulder. Please advice. Will Gyming cure?

Rest: Fracture/Dislocation of hand requires immobilization, rest for healing, especially if you have disrupted ligaments. You have not indicated the anatomical part of the hand, wrist, metacarpals, or phalanges (fingers). Get seen by MD, get X-rays, immobilize and use RICE. RICE stands for Rest, Ice, Compress with ace (in your case thumb spica splint or cast if MD indicates) and NSAIDs (unless fracture)

I did a handstand today and my forearm and left half of my left hand is numb. Its been a couple of hours. I did mountain climbs, planks, and push ups since then. I've been using it regularly. Should I be worried?

Probably not. ...: But that's a lot of activity for a little wrist! In general, it's best to avoid any further unusual use of a part if it's started to get you some negative feedback like numbness. While the planks and push ups are normal activities for you, it is extra work for your arm. Just do other activities (no arm use) until the numbness goes away. Use ice. If it lasts >24 hrs, call your doc. Good wishes:)
