Have mild-moderate Overpronation/flat feet  & wear orthotics. OK to wear stabilizing athletic sneakers without orthotics?Same support?

Not as supportive: It is okay to wear athletic shoes without orthotics, but you will not get the same level of support for your arch. Custom orthotics conform to your arch and can help limit excessive pronation. The best combination for support is to wear custom orthotics with a stable athletic shoe. This becomes even more important if you participate in high-impact activities like running. ...Read more

Will soccer players ever wear helmets?

Will soccer players ever wear helmets?

Concussions Tragic: As a player& doctor i think the legacy of soccer concussions are potentially destructive over a lifetime for players just as we have seen in the nfl. Girls playing through college may be at higher risk. Current gear does not have strong proof of protection. Let's worry more about the players' brains & lives then if we can properly see them on the pitch. Better soft head wear may be out there yet. ...Read more

Why do women wear high heel shoes?

M 22 year old girl virgin. I do heavy weight training exercises in gym can doing squats,lunges,& exercising on leg press machine in gym break hymen?

No, but...: It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. So, ignore the hymen. Usually, only in cases of alleged sexual assault upon girls and women do we physicians engage in the careful examination of hymens, collecting evidence of physical damage to be used later in courts of law. In normal everyday life, people should not be "checking hymens" nor thinking about whether they are broken or not broken. ...Read more

If i wear ponytail for exercise and bed, will hair break off?

If i wear ponytail for exercise and bed, will hair break off?

Some: It depends on how tight you pull it back, the type of hair device you use & the health of your hair. Pulling too tight can pull hair out at the root. Using a rubber band or something that sticks to the hair can break the hair shaft with friction especially if you lay on it. Dry or over-processed hair is more susceptable to both. Be gentle with hair & you shouldn't have much trouble. ...Read more

I had a myomectomy on 12december2012. I was told 4 weeks post op and i can start gymming. Is it too soon? Still feels swollen around the scar.

If ok with surgeon: Different surgeons may have different opinions but i think it is reasonable to begin low impact aerobic exercise and light weights with addition of increasing resistance over the next 3 weeks. Monitor your wound in the progress. It often takes up to 48 hours to assess pain and tenderness after a new exercise regimen do start slowly. Compression garments over the scar may help minimize swelling. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Can ladies just admit they wear low-cut tops so that certain men can admire them?

You'll have to ask: Perhaps if you make an anomyous online survey you can get some females to answer the question and hope they are honest. I am sure some women do this to catch the eye of a man or men. I am sure some women do this to that they stand out from the crowd of other women. But i guess why does if matter if some do and some don't? Variety is what makes life interesting, and this is a personal decision. ...Read more

If I wear a corset for kyphosis correction, can I continue to go to the gym? What physical restrictions will I have? Do I need to wear it 24/7?

Yes : You absolutely can still exercise and go to the gym while being treated for kyphosis with a corset, and it is good to do so.
