Doctor insights on:
Use common sense: I am a skier, but have a daughter who snowboards. I would suggest if you are a beginner take lessons, get proper instruction, wear proper clothing for being outside. make sure you are in proper health, check with your doctor. be prepare to fall a lot, if you are a beginner. Don't take anything on, you can't handle.
Marked pain?: Decreased range of motion? Large amount of swelling or obvious deformity? If yes - then med eval would be prudent.
Clarification needed: There isn't enough information provided to give any specific recommendations. You can re-ask question with clarification or see your medical provider if it is not resolving.
Yes-many benefits!: Snowboarding requires physical exertion & helps build balance and co-ordination. In general any physical exertion is beneficial. It is also healthful to be outdoors enjoying nature. Most find snowboarding to be fun & enjoyable; anything that gives pleasure & reduces stress has health benefits. Perhaps the only thing about snowboarding that may harm health is the potential for injury, so be careful!
That depends: I am sorry but i don't know the reason that you received sutures. When you can snowboard again really depends on what the underlying problem was. It would be best to ask the healthcare provider who treated you. Take care.
Get up & keep -: - having fun. Your question does not mention any injury being sustained.See 1 more doctor answer
Be seen: If you are concerned you had an injury, don't hesitate to be seen and evaluated.
Depends: I would recommend checking with your physician first if its safe for you to do. Remember to stretch, and strengthen your core muscles prior to the season.See 1 more doctor answer
Why not?: Like most activities, it depends how one approaches it. Snowboarding can be relaxing — or it can be a tense and/or scary experience. Whatever the activity, gently avoid "shoulds", time pressure, harsh self-judgments, unflattering comparisons with others, etc. Focus on the here-and-now and give yourself time. And take it easy as a beginner.See 1 more doctor answer

What to do if i want to get abs and a stronger core for hockey and snowboarding, how do I do that?
See below: There are many great exercises to strengthen the abdominal muscles. I would recommend a visit with a physical therapist or personal trainer to learn proper technique. One of the best exercises are called planks. To do this lay on your stomach and lift your belly and legs off the ground with your forarms and toes on the ground. Try holding this postion for 15-30 seconds at a time.
I hurt my tailbone snowboarding... Id like to know how I would know if its broken?... And or is there somthing to do ubout it?
Xray: You'll need an xray to determine if your tailbone is broken, but as long as it is not displaced, there is not much that we can do. We recommend sitting on a donut pad or on the edge of a phone book, and applying ice to the area. With a stable fracture or a bruise, time is of the essence for improvement of pain.
So my dr told me i need to lose weight. So i toom up snowboarding and eating right. And went from 180 - 155 in three 1/2 months. Is this good?
Congratulations: Slow and steady weight loss is the way to go. Please get a target weight range from your doc. We are all built differently. If you can't snowboard in the warmer weather please find some other form of exercise to replace it. Peace and good health.
Maybe: If there is swelling and deformity of the wrist and difficulty moving the wrist then you should have it examined.
How long after tonsolectomy should I wait to go snowboarding cus im post op day 9 and i want to go cus my bday is on the tenth of may.
Recommend against: As a surgeon who does tonsillectomy, i would not recommend strenuous activity so soon after a surgery. Of course, this will depend on the nature of and indications for your surgery. Talk to your surgeon prior to heading out & get her/his suggestion. You are still possibly in the risky period for bleeding complications and doing a lot of mouth breathing during exertion can increase your risk.See 1 more doctor answer
