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

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.

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
