Rollerblading: Once healed, through physical therapy post-op and cleared by your surgeon, there should be no reason you cannot return to rollerblading. Just don't fall! In fact, it should be excellent exercise for your repaired lumbar spine. Good luck. ...Read more

Can rollerblading tone my butt and thighs?

So working them can have a high impact per time invested! remember that it's natural for us to lose muscle mass starting in our thirties. We have to build and defend muscle. Don't forget your helmet and padding. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Yes, a small risk of a foot injury exists if you roller-blade. But what doesn't come with risks? Go out and enjoy life's pleasures. Injuries are going to find you whether you enjoy life or not! ...Read more

I was rollerblading and I had fallen twice but I only had a big bruise but now it's turned into a huge swelling and there's what looks like a small bug bite there too?

I was rollerblading and I had fallen twice but I only had a big bruise but now it's turned into a huge swelling and there's what looks like a small bug bite there too?

Hematoma: Is a area of bleeding or blood clot under the skin. Fancy term for bruise, but they can become quite large and painful at times. A break in the skin over a hematoma can allow bacteria to get in. This can lead to a septic hematoma (infected bruise). I'm concerned the "bug bite there too" might actually be an early abscess/ boil. You should see a local physician or urgent care today.. ...Read more
