Can riding a bike(mountain)all ur life cause a male to be sterile? Cuz my bro. Has n he can't n hasn't had any kids.

A possibility: Cycling long distances may decrease sperm output or cause damaged/unhealthy sperm. Bouncing around on typical bike saddle can damage scrotum & testes, halting normal sperm production. Tight cycling pants & friction between body & saddle can overheat testes, which need to stay cool to keep producing sperm. Padded cycling pants & breaks 4 cooling down may help but damage may be permanent in some. ...Read more

Usualy I do 5 heavy training a week. Two of those are mountain bike and the others indoor. I always push myself to limit... Is it dangerous overtraining?

Dangerous?: Maybe not dangerous, but certainly not always productive. Your body needs rest too. If you wake up the day after a hard ride feeling exhausted or you notice your performance on the bike declining, you are probably overtraining. An easier, recovery ride a few times a week can give your body a chance to rest and rebuild. ...Read more

I fell of my mountain bike and had a large thigh hematoma, other than rice, what should I do?

After the initial inflammatory phase resolves, early passive and active range of motion exercises and a guided physical therapy program may help hasten recovery.

I have a problem where it is hard to bend my knee fully I cycle about 100 miles a week on mountain bike this does not cause problem but I miss running?

Possible: Knee effusion (fluid on the knee) or internal derangement. If it bothers you enough you may want to consult with a sports medicine doctor as draining of an effusion can often help restore mobility when it is the cause. Ultrasound is useful for effusion diagnosis but MRI is the best overall test for knee evaluation (usually after plain x-rays obtained). ...Read more

When can I expect to mountain bike after a laparoscopic appendectomy? It's been 5 weeks, and I still have some tenderness near one of my incisions.

When can I expect to mountain bike after a laparoscopic appendectomy? It's been 5 weeks, and I still have some tenderness near one of my incisions.

Biking post lap: Biking at this juncture will not stress those incisions nor any internal ligatures. Be careful that you do not fall -- please minimize risks if you go "off trail". Perhaps best to not go off trail for 2 more weeks, and to choose safer less rugged trails. If you have not been riding at all since surgery, then ride on the road first for a few days. Be sure that incision is not infected at this time ...Read more

Varies: There are multiple potential causes from simple things like a bone contusion which should resolve to things like a meniscal tear. If you are getting better you may choose to wait it out further, if not it would probably be good to be seen for a specific diagnosis. ...Read more
