Injured wrist 1 wk ago playing football and an MRI showed edema and black lunate bone, was in cast for 1 mo okay to go back to gym?

No: If the lunate was the only wrist bone to be black you could have keinboch's or avascular necrosis of the lunate. This needs to be evaluated and treated before you do permanent damage to your wrist. See a hand surgeon.

Wrist fracture: Stable fractures can often be immobilized in a cast that is padded to allow football participation. Unstable fractures however should not be subjected to contact activities for fear of further displacement or angulation. This can occur even inside a protective cast for certain injuries. Talk to your orthopedic surgeon to be sure.

I was playing football and I was in goal and someone hit the ball at my left hand and my wrist bent back?

Wrist: Your wrist was hyperextended. If you have any pain ice it up and you might use an ace bandage or wrist brace. If you are in pain that doesn't improve see your doctor for an x ray to rule out a fractured wrist

I broke my scaphoid in my wrist on Sunday and got a cast today, when can I return to football? Could I play a match in a few days?

I broke my scaphoid in my wrist on Sunday and got a cast today, when can I return to football?  Could I play a match in a few days?

No: Scaphoid fractures can be quite serious. Depending on the type of fracture, there is a chance that the blood supply to the scaphoid becomes damaged and part of the bone can die which can lead to future problems. You should see a hand surgeon for further eval to determine if you need surgery or not. Either way, you will need to refrain from sports for 6-8 weeks at minimum or you could re-injure.

My son was playing football today and was stooded on his wrist but it is swollen and bruised and when he moves it it hurts do I take him to the hospit?

How can I wrap my arm cast so that its safe to play football?

How can I wrap my arm cast so that its safe to play football?

Not a good idea: Anything sufficient to protect your healing bone under the cast would be so inhibiting that your football skills would be minimal. Anything less would risk your healing and a non-union of a bone is an ordeal best avoided if possible.

Can playing football with a bone contusion on the inner foot cause further damage?

Can playing football with a bone contusion on the inner foot cause further damage?

Better to rest: A bone contusion is usually very painful and swollen. If you continue to play football you risk a second injury or fracture. I would suggest rest, ice , elevation, and compression.

My 16 year old broke his foot playing football and the dr can't get him in for 5 days. Will this cause a problem with the reconstruction of the bone? Or should we get him in sooner for correct healing

My 16 year old broke his foot playing football and the dr can't get him in for 5 days. Will this cause a problem with the reconstruction of the bone? Or should we get him in sooner for correct healing

Variable: Most fractures need initial stabilization and a waiting period for the initial swelling to go down before the orthopedist will cast the injury. Unless there is an open fracture (exposed bone) that needs immediate surgery, a delay is routine. If you took him to your pcp, urgent care, or the er and had initial stabilization and pain management, you are likely fine to wait.Call your pcp for other que.

May son injured his thumb playing football 2 weeks ago and he still has a great deal of pain from it. Should we get it xrayed?

May son injured his thumb playing football 2 weeks ago and he still has a great deal of pain from it. Should we get it xrayed?

2 weeks: 2 weeks is a long time for a simple contusion or strain to cause his thumb pain. It is time to have his thumb examined to look for serious ligamentous injury or have an XR to look for a bony injury such as a fracture. All the best and I hope his thumb feels better soon.

After having neck surgery can I ever play football again i injured it playing football

After having neck surgery can I ever play football again i injured it playing football

It depends: It depends completely upon the nature of the surgery itself. There are multiple players in the national football league that have had neck surgery or even multiple neck surgery. But there are also conditions in the neck that contraindicate any participation in contact sports. Your surgeon would almost certainly be able to tell you. Thank you for your question.
