What weight exercises can a C5/6 Quad do?  I have a Uppertone machine but it is worn out.  What can I do to get in shape that costs very little.

C5/6 QUAD: Hello KevinF14, to correctly answer this one has to do a neuro exam to see what movement you have at that level, because C5/6 involves biceps, triceps(C5,6,7), deltoids and rotator cuff and rhomboids and trapezius, serratus anterior, so you only have levator scapulae to shrug. I would have a trainer or PT evaluate your residual movt to accurately respond to this thx ...Read more

The right path...: Looks like you are doing a lot right having improved your ejection fraction and exercising regularly. I have had patients live long and strong after bypass because they ate right (Mediterranean), exercised, slept well, had strategies for stress-relief (meditation has studies behind it) and good relationships.

After a vigorous exercise, my quads are extremely sore, causing my legs to buckle when I walk. What steps do I take to heal, and prevent more injury?

After a vigorous exercise, my quads are extremely sore, causing my legs to buckle when I walk. What steps do I take to heal, and prevent more injury?

Don't push so hard!: 1st drink plenty of water to rehydrate. Then take it easy ie no exercise for next several days until you're better. Next time, don't push so far, so fast, so hard. Yes, you still need to exercise but not to that extent. In meantime, do stretch all your muscles, especially the sore ones. And keep exercising those muscles that don't involve the sore ones. ...Read more

How long does a pulled quad take to heal?

Depends: It depends on how badly it is pulled, how much physical therapy you do, how well you take care of it. Pulled quads are hard because we use that set of muscles so much. Please see a doctor, go to pt and don't rush it. Don't be afraid to tell the doctor if it's not healing as expected. Good luck. ...Read more
