What Sports Can You Still Play With A Broken Arm
Depends: Sorry to say it again but it all depends upon what he injury is. A non displaced fracture is difernet from a fracture that requires reduction, or internal fixation (surgery) age is a factor not only fo rthe degree of injury but for who one is competing against.

2 to 3 months: Usually after the fx has healed and the arm properly reha, that is you have ragain your strenght and mobility back. Depanding upon where the fx is localized and fx characteristic could be nbeyween two and three months.
Depends: This depends on many factors. This includes what part of your arm was broken as an example was it the shaft was it a part of your joint. How was it treated with cast immobilization or surgery. How far out are you from your injury and healing. In general I tell my patients that they may resume contact sports 4 to 6 weeks after removal of their cast or brace. Again this is a complicated question I would refer you back to your provider to answer this.
I just had a rotator cuff strain injury from a fall. Can't lift my arm up. How long does it usually take to recover? When can I resume playing sports
Best for you to get: Advise from someone who evaluates you, by examining/investigating you. He'll inform you of the diagnosis/treatment. So see an orthopod. It generally last for about 6 weeks, by then if its a partial tear/sprain, it should improve greatly. A few patients don't improve and may need MRI and probably benefit from the surgical repair. Returning to sports would be once the rc has healed. Good luck.

See sports med doc: Depending on where exactly the pain is, there are a few things that can cause these symptoms. It may be 'tennis elbow' (tendonitis). You would likely benefit from physical therapy- not only to decrease the pain, but also to address the mechanical factors that caused it in the first place.See 1 more doctor answer

I've had cold sores once per year for years but now have herpes once a month on different parts of my skin like elbow, knee. Why? I don't play sports
This is something: I think would be better handled by your primary doctor. If they feel it's herpes outbreak monthly or more frequently:you could be prescribed medication. This medince could be taken daily to supress frequent outbreaks.
Painful: Broken bones don't say I think I'm broke, they say I'm broke. Most people feel silly when they say I think I broke a bone when they finally break a bone, as the difference is significant. Pain interpretation is very individualized though. Some have high pain thresholds and some have very low thresholds.See 1 more doctor answer
Restrictions: A lot depends upon the location, degree, level of instability, effectiveness of treatment. You really need to get specific guidelines from your treating provider...But I always mention when asked that using a jackhammer and repelling down a steep mountain are probably out for most.See 1 more doctor answer
