Choosing safe exercises for you and your baby is important because some positions, as your weight and balance change, may become uncomfortable or have potentially harmful effects.

My son has a green stick fracture of the radius? How long until he is able to play sports again? He is 8 yrs old.
My 10 year old son just diagnosed with hand foot mouth disease. He is generally feeling fine. He still play sports with his father twice a day. Okay?
Sure, but...: Hand/foot/mouth is a viral illness usually caused by a virus called a coxsackie virus. Usually we see this in our part of the country in spring/early summer, but we too have seen some cases in our office the past few weeks. Your body will fight this off on its own, so if he's feeling ok, he can be as active as he feels ok for. He is fighting an illness, though, so insure plenty of rest and fluids. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Love him and cherish the role you had as he enters independent, often-hard adult life. ...Read more

14y/o son has had "heel pain" for about a yr. He plays sports at school. Does this warrant a trip to the dr? Mainly occurs during sport activity...
Athletic heel pain: The most likely diagnosis for your son's heel pain is sever's disease, a condition that is caused by stress to the growth plate in the heel with use of the calf muscles. However, in an athlete, we would want to perform an xray to rule-out stress fracture. If the xray is negative, this can usually be managed with a gel heel cup and exercise program (and he will outgrow it). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
