Can you play soccer with an arm splint on?

Physically, yes, but. Depending on the competition, the referee may not permit you to play. I am a ussf certified referee and in sanctioned competitions, casts/splints are not permitted due to the risk of injury to other players.

I fractured my wrist 6 weeks ago (fracture right distal radius). I had a below-the-elbow cast which came off yesterday. I am wearing a splint Would you advice to play soccer on Saturday? What can I wear to protect my wrist further?

Ask your orthopedist. In a young healthy person, at 6 weeks, a fracture is usually healed. However, I do not know the details or severity of your injury. It is easily possible to fall playing soccer and reinjure it, which would be horrible. You need to follow the advice of the person who knows the details of your injury - your orthopedic doctor.

Probably not. At 6 weeks after a radius fracture, things are just starting to heal up. If you see to fall onto the wrist playing soccer, even if you had a splint on, you would be at high risk to refracture it. If you could give it 4 more weeks it would be a lot safer. Read more...

I keep getting shin splints every time I play soccer or run for a long time. I'm 28 yrs old, weigh 189.5 lbs. I have to take a break for atleast 2 weeks. Before my pain goes away...Walking with the splints is difficult. Is this happenign because of lack of

If . If the pain occurs with running on the inside of your shin and doesn't linger too long or hurt so much that you limp it is probably "shin splints" or periostitis as opposed to stress fracture. If it is locally very tender and causing limp you should see a doctor. Periositis is often caused by excessive pronation overworking your tibialis posterior muscle. Stretching your calf, strengthening your tibialis posterior (medial side of your ankle), and wearing motion control shoes possibly with additional arch support may help. Weakness in the muscles that externally rotate your hip can also contribute. A physical therapist could help you with these exercises. If despite this no improvement, would check with sports doctor.

I . I agree with dr. O'kane. To address your symptoms, you must address the entire kenetic chain. That means everything from your core to your big toe and includes proper mechanics and footweat as well as strength and flexibility. Seeing a physical therapist is a good starting point but, you may want to rule out a stress fracture in your leg. This could be accomplished by seeing your local sports medicine physician.

PEMF. Pulse electromagnetic therapy works very well for periostitis. I had a personal injury due to trying to lift a microwave and scraped this on my shin. The induration and hematoma immediately got better with pemf but the induration lasted total of 10 days. In addition you might need cat's claw and essential fatty acids to relieve pain. Handheld pemf device is available from http://almagia.Com. Read more...

It has been 2 months since I broke my forearm, when can I play soccer again (no goalkeeping)? Specifically, I only broke my radius

Can't say. It is difficult to say without knowing the fracture type and the extent of current healing it is feasible to think that at 8 weeks you may be able to play with a lightweight cast or custom splint. Regulations may require padding such as bubble wrap. Sorry, but your orthopaedic surgeon is the only one that can make that determination. Read more...

My 13 yr old daughter upon waking from occasional naps has spasms in her arm, what could be causing this. She plays soccer, and is the goalie.

Possibilities. This could be as simple as a condition called sleep myoclonus, that happens to most people occasionally.It might also be something more important.I would discuss it with her dock at the next visit, or sooner if this is becoming more frequent. Read more...

Fractured my radius and ulna bones playing soccer. The doctor said no work or soccer for 6 weeks but 4 weeks on I don't feel any pain and the arm feels normal so could I play again?

You can but shouldn' You are more susceptible to reinjuring your arm if you fall or are bumped while playing. This would ultimately lengthen, not shorten, your recovery. Read more...
No. I'm assuming your fractures occurred distally( toward the wrist)...If they occurred mid shaft they would require orif ( plating).Irregardless, your fractures should be fully healed before resuming soccer(8 wks) unless your are protected in a 'focus rigidity' or similar splint.Even so, you are taking a definite chance of re- fracturing if you return @ 4 weeks. Good luck! Read more...
