    Stress Fracture

    Hi all, I'm a runner who was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with a stress fracture on the neck of my left femur. Once the x-ray results were back my PCP instructed me to stop ALL exercise, including low impact activities like yoga. I then had an MRI, bone scan, and a consult with an orthopedist. After practically begging, the orthopedist said I can do easy exercise like swimming, low-resistance cycling,...

    Extreme sports injuries?

    Hey gang,I just recently (as in today is Thursday 5/19 and recently is Monday 5/16) got out of the hospital after a 12 day stay following a TBI that I sustained while downhill skateboarding (going 30-60 mph on a skateboard down an open mountain road).

    Support from fellow runners please

    Hi. I'm 35 years old and I have been running for about 4 years now. I usually run at least 3 days a week. I have done several 5k races and I have been training for longer distances. I love to run. I wish I could bottle the feeling you get after a good run and keep it for emergencies. I obsess over it. When I see a runner while I'm driving I get insanely jealous and I want to park my car and run...

    Baker Cyst

    Hello,with all of the sports I do, I injured my knee a few months ago by squatting down and getting something out of a kitchen drawer. It made a "pop" and then I felt a knot develop at the side of my inner left knee. When I went to the Doctor, he believed I tore a meniscus, but the MRI revealed that it was just a bad sprain causing a baker's cyst. Physical therapy was recommended. Stretching...

    L5-S1 Disc Herniation and Nerve impingement

    I don't know what I'm expecting out of this. All i know is that I was a collegiate volleyball player who lifted wrong and tried to work through the pain and it ended my career. After trying to play through my injury for 2 months, the pain in my back got so unbearable that I couldn't even move without screaming after practice. I got an MRI the next day and my disc was herniated. An epidural was...
