What's a good diet for my 12 year old son who plays football?

What's a good diet for my 12 year old son who plays football?

He needs variety..: A variety of food types and portions/servings are recommended--see the pyramid for example. Since he is growing and playing contact sports, he can burn off calories faster than those who don't, and thus needs to take in more. But in general, we eat too much anyway. Minimize junk foods/sodas. So watch his wt. See doc at least annually. Consult your doc/nutritionist if you need help.. Good luck. ...Read more

Does playing football afect one's height growth? And what should a 17yr old's diet contain in order to help him get taller?

Does playing football afect one's height growth? And what should a 17yr old's diet contain in order to help him get taller?

Healthy lifestyle: You are most likely to reach your tallest potential height by following a healthy diet, getting appropriate sleep and remaining physically active. There are no exercises that specifically increase height. Football doen not increase or stunt growth. Nothing you eat or drink will add inches. You can stunt your growth by the opposite, poor diet/sleep/inactivity can all take a toll. ...Read more

Why am I not getting ripped I do pushups pullups 5 days alternatively, play football but still don't have the results, diet is also good.

Why am I not getting ripped I do pushups pullups 5 days alternatively, play football but still don't have the results, diet is also good.

Diet and exercise: You must have your body fay content drop to around 5% of your total body weight to get "ripped". The average un-ripped person carries 10-20 % body fat so 5-15% of your current weight is the fluff you need to lose. Good workouts are fine to build muscle mass and strength, but it requires great dietary control to achieve this look. ...Read more

Football player with internal hemmroids, discomfort. Fiber, water, diet, witch hazel hasn't helped. I need to lift, what do I do? Band surgery help?

Football player with internal hemmroids, discomfort. Fiber, water, diet, witch hazel hasn't helped. I need to lift, what do I do? Band surgery help?

Yes: Banding is a good first step. A small, thin rubber band is placed on the dilated vein (hemorrhoid) and the vein dies off and drys up. This works fo many people. But if you continue to have problems you will need to have them excised (cut out). Try banding 1st-- a surgeon, colorectal surgeon or even some GI specialists will do that for you. Good luck. ...Read more

Swollen finger after catching football awkwardly. Two months ago. Swelling improved over 1st month but finger still sore. Does it take weeks/months?

Swollen finger after catching football awkwardly. Two months ago. Swelling improved over 1st month but finger still sore. Does it take weeks/months?

Fracture healing: If you broke the finger, it could definitely still be sore. Bones take 6 weeks to heal, typically. If it wasn't splinted all that time, it will take longer. If it was a soft-tissue injury, like a ligament/tendon injury, that could be tender for several weeks as well. It would be a good idea to see a doctor if you are having trouble with your range of motion. Good luck. ...Read more

My son is 17 and has started his two a days for football. This am before practice he weighed 261 after practice 251 is this ok?

Mild dehydration: The body is roughly 70% water & shifts of this amount 10lb in 260lb person amounts to less than 5% of his body weight. Although troubling, this is something he should be able to tolerate. Fluid loading prior to workouts & drinking more during breaks could avoid the weight loss. Failure to keep up with his fluids can lead to dizziness, declining performance & heat related illness. ...Read more

Will I have to wear a brace after I recover and rehab from ACL reconstruction? I plan to go back to football and basketball

Will I have to wear a brace after I recover and rehab from ACL reconstruction? I plan to go back to football and basketball

Possibly: After acl reconstruction most surgeons still utilize a postoperative 'rehab ' brace for 6 weeks; although some acl surgeons do not. 'functional', custom-fit acl braces are most commonly used after5-6 months for athletes returning to sports, esp. Football. Personaly, I still prefer post-op braces to help obtain full extension and prevent inadvertent hyperextension; 'custom' @6 months for football.. ...Read more

What is the best ACL graft to choose if u plan on returning to high level sports like football and basketball?

Autograft: There are several choices for a graft for acl reconstruction: patellar tendon autograft, hamstring autograft, and allograft. Studies show that taking an autograft in a young patient has a lower rate of re-tear as compared to an allograft, so that would be your best option. Between hamstring and patellar tendon, the jury is still out, and I would go with the one your surgeon recommends. ...Read more

I have bicep tendon instability, icing and stem treatments do not help. What should I do? I am a college football player and have had two surgeries on my left shoulder to repair my labrum. Now II suffer from chronic pain in the front of my shoulder and co

A: A young athlete such as you can have a complex problem with the shoulder and is more likely to have recurrent shoulder joint instability than older patients. While long head of the biceps tendinitis and subluxation can be painful and causing your symptoms, this should be determined by a good shoulder specialist. He/she should have a sports fellowship focusing on shoulder injuries.

If the labral tear has healed well and there is no residual shoulder instability, the biceps tendon can be treated a few ways. Injections can be quite helpful by reducing pain and inflammation. Some surgeons will do a tenotomy (cut the tendon) and let it self-determine a new length as it scars. Other surgeons will do a tenodesis and anchor the tendon in a specific location.

Most importantly, though, is assuring a stable joint as a loose shoulder can cause problems now and in the future. ...Read more
