8-10 weeks: A simple break of the fibula takes about 6-8 weeks to heal with 4-6 weeks of therapy afterwards to regain strength, range of motion and balance. The time it takes to return to sport depends on the type of fracture as well. I would expect at least 6-8 weeks of healing before returning to play. Once your strength and range of motion are equal to the good side, you can safely return to play. ...Read more
It's all cardio: Soccer is a sport that requires superb aerobic fitness to play well as the sport entails nearly non- stop running w/ little 'break' time.

If not, see your primary care physician for evaluation. Best of Luck! ...Read more

Depends: "tailbone" injuries can be very painful and for a very long time. Pain will probably dictate your return to your sports. Of course re-injury can occur but that is a risk you take. Work with your doctor, sports trainer and coach on when to return. You may need to see someone skilled in injuries in this area. Sometime it is necessary to remove a tail bone due to pain and to restore activity. ...Read more
Most likely: You should be able to consider this activity between 6 months to 1 year after surgery. The graft should be adequately incorporated by 6 months, but you must work with therapy to regain leg strength. Strength is the most protective mechanism against re-injury.

I have recently started playing sport again after 7 years football (soccer). I have serious leg pain in my calfs and knees while running. What do I do?
Take it slow: Be sure you stretch often and a lot before any exercise. Take it slowly since you have not been physically active for seven years. If the pain is not improving with rest, stretching before exercise/activity, and even trying some otc nsaids to decrease inflammation, then seek a medical exam. Best wishes. ...Read more
most football associations require the use of a protective cup period. This is no joke in that permanent injury can occur for a "low blow" that is easily prevented.

That makes me concerned. Is he suffering from minor concussions? Is he dehydrated? Is his blood sugar running too low? Does his helmet fit correctly? Does he like football? It's time to do some further investigation. These questions need to be asked and answered. Make these corrections if possible. If I can help, then join my care team and virtual practice at

If healthy, protein: If you are feeling well, and ideally have been evaluated by a physician recently to be sure you do not have a metabolic condition (such as thyroid disease or diabetes) and are not taking stimulant medications, then adding a protein supplement to your regular diet--without reducing your usual intake--can help. This can be as a snack bar, meal-replacement bar, or powder you add to drinks. ...Read more

I have little belt fat and iam playing football weekly. But it doesn't change. How can I remove the belt fat with simple exercise?
I am not aware of any exercise that can result in removal of localized fat deposits. The best reason for liposuction is "a localized fat deposit that doesn't respond to diet and exercise." you may want to investigate this with a surgeon certified by the american board of plastic surgery if the belt fat is bothersome enough to you.
Good luck! ...Read more
Probably: The size and location will determine if it will be a problem. If it is a large one on a small stalk, near a joint, then it may potentially be fractured if it is hit hard enough. That would be quite painful. Check with an orthopedic surgeon to evaluate it by xray and make recommendations based on what your goals are in relation to the tumor. ...Read more
