My tall 15 y.o. son gets sore ankles after running/playing soccer. He  also leans forward from his waist to accelerate when runnng. What should we do?

The feet/an less-: -need evaluation. The leaning forward in acceleration is good form. Just watch sprinter in an Olympic Games or a college track meet. The first 5 or so steps are very much bent @the waist & then they slowly get to an upright position. This allows for a fast start. ...Read more

Adding Singulair (montelukast): If you have used you proair or ventolin properly (inhale slowly in) , you may try upping the dose to 4 inhalations. Otherwise consider a trial with singulair (montelukast). Be sure that the breathing problem is from asthma. If the onset is less than 10 minutes, you may have what one calls vocal cord dysfunction which would not usually be helped by a bronchodilator. ...Read more

Several Concerns: There are several things that could be causing pain. You said you just had a physical, did they know about the pain during the exam? The pain may not noticeable during activities, as you are not focused on the pain. Without an exam and additional info, it could be intestinal, muscle or ligment strain, inguinal hernia or sports hernia, testicular issue, etc. Get it checked, sooner if worse. ...Read more

Hey I'm Paul and 16 yrs. I was playing soccer and while running I hurt my toe it isn't swollen or red put hurts when I try to walk on it ?

Hey I'm Paul and 16 yrs. I was playing soccer  and while  running I hurt my toe it isn't swollen or red put hurts when I try to walk on it ?

Let it recover...: You need to stay off of it, apply ice to the area in question rest and elevate it. If the problem does not improve in a day, you should have it evaluated. If the toe improves, then you can hold off for another day or two. As long as the toe is improving with time, it is probably not seriously injured. To remove all doubt have your family doctor or a Healthtap specialist evaluate it. ...Read more

Fractured tibia 11/17/13. Visited doctor today, said its good. To start running, what do you guys think? How much longer til i play soccer again?

That is about 10 we-: Eks ago, since you fractured the bone, so most likely its healed by now. Its healed if your doc told you so. I am sure he must have examined you and had xrays done. You should do as he suggested and slowly build up the muscles and get the stiffness out of the joints, and over the next 2 months you should be able to start practicing and be ready for soccer in another 4-6 weeks. Check with your doc. ...Read more
