What kind of medicine or crime will I use when sprain knee? How many day will it better? Can I play football again if it is better?

What kind of medicine or crime will I use when sprain knee? How many day will it better? Can I play football again if it is better?

Rest: Avoid anti-inflamatories like Motrin or aleve if there is a sprain (with instability). Wrap the knee, ice and elevate periodically. Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain should be sufficient for the pain. Any linament (greasy and warming) can stimulate blood flow for healing. See a sports doctor if the fluid and pain persist for 1 week. You will play again when healed and strong.

What kind of treatment can I expect for a herniated disc at t7, and will I still be able to play football?

What kind of treatment can I expect for a herniated disc at t7, and will I still be able to play football?

Time: 90% of thoracic disc herniations require no treatment. Tincture of time will be the number one treatment. I noticed that you are listed as 46 years of age, so what type of football are you playing? If just flag or touch football, then you can return once your symptoms have improved, but do so gradually. Make sure you tolerate running, changing directions, catching passes, etc. Before competition.

Hello, today in football at school I got kicked on my big toe by a boy wearing studded shoes my toe is pointing inwards and I can't walk on it. It is?

I'm not sure what: Your question is, but if it is: Is it broken?, I would recommend that since it appears crooked and you can't walk on it, that you see your doctor or an orthopedist, so that you can get an X-ray to check. Meanwhile, you can ice it, elevate it, and if you don't have a medical contraindication to doing so, take ibuprofen for the pain.

I'm just wondering, if you are a football player, 6'2 and 245lbs, are you considered over weight?

I'm just wondering, if you are a football player, 6'2 and 245lbs, are you considered over weight?

Yes. Means nothing: The "body mass index" categories were never even meant to apply to individuals, and the fad for using them for individual assessment is misguided. In fact, john cena is "obese". Back in the 1990's my city tried to send all the police officers who work out for treatment for "overweight". I intervened successfully. In fact, the new studies have "overweight" folks living longer & healthier.

Better be checked: See your primary doctor, a simple physical and health status exam with routine tests according to your age would be helpful, might include ECG / blood work or other studies, best wishes

I am just 18 years old, I was a football player but something out of my control happens and I stopped and started to smoke and cant quit, any help?

I am just 18 years old, I was a football player but something out of my control happens and I stopped and started to smoke and cant quit, any help?

Smoking: Unfortunately nicotine is very addictive. I suggest you seek help from your doctor to begin medications that will help you quit rather than assuming you can do it " cold turkey". You are 18- you have a long life ahead of you. Smoking is so very very bad for you and the longer you continue the harder it will be to quit.

I am stressed out every day at work and my husband is a football player could we possibly conceive a baby we have been trying for a year but no luck?

I am stressed out every day at work and my husband is a football player could we possibly conceive a baby we have been trying for a year but no luck?

Still possible: Timing sounds like an issue for you. Be sure to concentrate your efforts to get pregnant on the second week after your period starts. You should be ovulating between 10 and 14 days after the first day of your period. Having sex every other day starting day 8 and ending around day 16 will give you the greatest chances. Over 95% of couples will get pregnant during the first 2 years of "trying.".

Why do I feel physically tired all the time? I am an ex football player so I am always active, mentally im good, not just physically. I'm always tired.

See your doctor: Fatigue in a previously active and healthy individual warrants a visit to your family doctor or internist. Possible causes include anemia, hypothyroidism, diabetes, and other possible issues.

Myopathy: Means a disorder of muscle function, not necessarily how weak someone might be. There are myopathies due to inflammation, to chemical injury, inherited conditions, etc. Sometimes the person is very weak. Other times, not really weak.

Why do I have bad piles and have continuous problems with them, but never had bleeding? Football player who needs to lift. I know about fiberdiet, etc

Why do I have bad piles and have continuous problems with them, but never had bleeding? Football player who needs to lift. I know about fiberdiet, etc

Hemorrhoid causes: The weight lifting for athletic training is likely a contributor to your piles. Piles or hemorrhoids are similar to varicose veins in the legs, a response to venous pressure/hypertension. If you have the other factors under control, (bowel movements twice daily) then get in to see your local doc and get referral to local surgeon. You may benefit from removal of piles. Sports are important.

Fave football player has a partial torn rotator cup, is that something that can tear more?

Fave football player has a partial torn rotator cup, is that something that can tear more?

Yes: Many rotator cuff tears can increase in size. However, many partial tears can remain the same size indefinitely. Many throwing athletes have partial tears that are physiologic (or normal for their sport). Many pitchers, for example, develop small partial tears that become part of the way their shoulders work and do not need to be repaired.

As an old football player, is a weak knee normal?

As an old football player, is a weak knee normal?

Yes.: It is extremely common, especially if you were a young football player. There is a lot of pivoting in football, as well as strain on the knees. Minor injuries occur to the meniscus (cartilage) that accumulate over time. Good quad strengthening and hamstring stretches can stabilize the knee.

Can you still lift weights with internal piles? What about abs and squats? Football player. I need help

Can you still lift weights with internal piles? What about abs and squats? Football player. I need help

Yes, usually: "internal piles" come in grades 1 to 4. One and two are minor, grade 3 needs to be pushed back in and 4 stays out all the time. If you have grade 3 or 4, check with a general surgeon. For grade one or two, lifting and exercise should be fine unless they prompt bleeding. Cut back on the Ibuprofen if that happens and use fiber supplements to bulk and soften the stool. See a surgeon if that fails.
