Which is better after a hard workout for your muscles --- cold or warm shower?

Which is better after a hard workout for your muscles --- cold or warm shower?

First warm then cold: There is no firm consensus about this, but I believe the best course is to start with a moderately warm (but not hot shower) to relax and help wash away your sweat, followed by a cold shower which improves circulation and reduces inflammation. See http://health. Howstuffworks. Com/wellness/men/hygiene/should-man-take-cold-shower-after-workout. Htm for a good discussion. ...Read more

Held a warm, wet piece of tp against anus to clean. Felt a contraction around finger. Is this the outside sphincter muscle? Should it be this loose?

Held a warm, wet piece of tp against anus to clean. Felt a contraction around finger. Is this the outside sphincter muscle? Should it be this loose?

Outside/hard to say: The anus has two sphincters before the outlet. An internal automated one that keeps the fecal mass up and seldom dilates unless you are trying to evacuate. The external sphincter is usually closed at rest and you can close it harder if the inner sphincted is opening and you are trying to hold back a stool. Trauma to the outside sphincter or nerve damage can leave it weak and open. ...Read more

I run and bike for exercise. For the last couple years my groin has been getting very tight and I sometimes get a sharp pain when trying to lift my leg. It feels like a muscle pull. I can stretch and it feels better after warming up. I stretch freque?

Varies: There are multiple potential causes, I would not hesitate to be seen. In the field of orthopedics, one of the most common causes of groin pain is a problem with the hip itself. This can be from an early arthritic condition or something like a Labral tear. This would go along with the description of reproduction of pain when you lift your leg and also the stiffness you describe. ...Read more
