Sporting Activities (Definition)

It may be easier to exercise earlier in your pregnancy than during the last three months (third trimester) of pregnancy. 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. After 20 weeks of pregnancy, you should not do exercises that require lying flat on your back, because this position may make ...Read more

I was diagnosed with pots became less active could this be the cause of muscle atrophy ? If i was 180 pounds and know I am 161?Dont play sports nemore

POTS: With pots, patients are much less active in general, so weight loss is common. Pots is also associated with poorer dietary regimens, so weight loss can come from that. Try to exercise a little more each day, and eat a well balanced diet (even if you do not feel like eating). Walking, even around the neighborhood, is excellent for body and soul. Good luck.

Lump near my shin. I feel it is a muscle that connects to my foot. It may be a nerve, doesn't bother me when I play sports I feel the nerve move when ?

Lump near my shin. I feel it is a muscle that connects to my foot. It may be a nerve, doesn't bother me when I play sports I feel the nerve move when ?

Need to examine: What you described suggests herniation of the muscle through fascia, the fibrous covering of the muscle. If it does not bother you, you may let it be. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

If I play sports a lot does that make periods take longer to come because I still didn't get my first period yet. Should I stop sports?

If I play sports a lot does that make periods take longer to come because I still didn't get my first period yet. Should I stop sports?

Yes: Your first period can be delayed if you're very active with sports. Nevertheless, you should still have other signs of puberty. I recommend any young woman beyond age 15 that has not had a period be evaluated. You do not need to stop sports, but if your examination and labs are normal, you I would probably give you hormonal supplements to make sure you're not losing too much bone denisty. ...Read more

How long does it take to recover from a anterior cruciate ligament (acl) injury and to be able to play sports?

How long does it take to recover from a anterior cruciate ligament (acl) injury and to be able to play sports?

Depends: There are many variables that will effect the time necessary to recover enough to return to sports including the graft used, fixation techniques and the biases of the surgeon. Because some studies suggest return to sports prior to 9 months post surgery may increase the risk of reinjury, i prefer to have my patients wait 9 months. That is not to say some athletes have been able to return quicker. ...Read more

After a knee reconstruction on my ACL & meniscus. How long will it take for me to be able to play sports?

After a knee reconstruction on my ACL & meniscus. How long will it take for me to be able to play sports?

8-9 months: Return to cutting sports after acl reconstruction is currently a controversial topic. It takes 7-8 months after reconstruction for a autograft (your own tendon) to reincorporate, and it takes 8-9 months after an allograft (donor tendon) to reincorporate. Retear rates after early return to sports is higher, so a conservative 8-9 months is recommended. ...Read more

What is the best way to heal shoulder muscle tear besides getting a surgery?

What is the best way to heal shoulder muscle tear besides getting a surgery?

Depends: Understanding which tendon is torn and how much can better answer your question. The rotator cuff has five distinct layers and if it is torn top to bottom (full thickness), this will not heal and will progress over time. If speaking of a tear of the long head of the bicep, this does not typically require surgery and results most frequently in a "popeye" cosmetic deformity. ...Read more

I have a muscle tear or a knot in the left side of my neck tjat my chiropractor cant fix. Is this something that will heal on its own its been 2 mnths?

Depends: It depends somewhat on the exact diagnosis. A simple strain or "tear" of a muscle in the neck should be pretty well resolved by 8 weeks. So if you are still having trouble, you might want to consider more work up such as an MRI. You could potentially have a disc problem. ...Read more

What should I do to help a partial rectus femoris muscle tear heal? Should I see a doctor about this?

Rectus femoris: This really depends on what issues are arising. This muscle is involved with flexing the thigh at the hip and extending the leg at the knee. If those functions are still maintained then surgery is not needed. If its a partial tear confirmed on testing then you may want to consider Stem Cell/PRP injection into the tear. ...Read more

Lower back muscle tear...How long will i be off work...2 weeks later still the same pain..I'm doing therapy and muscle relaxer?

Depends: The extent of the tear, your ability to rest and stretch the injured area, and the type of work you are returning to are important factors your doctor will have to consider.

I got an ACL tear. Orthopedic said that it is degree 2+ and not to play sports for 2 months. Will i be alright after 2 months?

Depends: Not all acls need to be fixed. It depends on patient demands and instability. If the knee wobbles, it should be fixed. If no wobbles during everyday activities and you are willing to give up twisting and cutting sports you may be ok. If you want to play basketball, soccer, gymnastics, or other twisting and cutting sport, you will probable wobble during play and need to be fixed. ...Read more

One week after no: More headaches is the minimum recommendation. You may need longer depending on the severity of your concussion. You should not just be relying on the recommendations of the er doctor. You should be evaluated by your primary care doctor and obtain clearance from them before playing any sports. I know you want to play sports, but your brain needs time to heal. ...Read more
