Ankle injury; help me come up with a taxing cross-training program.

I was recently diagnosed with a tibial stress fracture. I'd like to keep up my aerobic fitness during the 6-8 weeks the doctor said I wouldn't be able to run, but everything I have tried (cycling, aqua running) is not giving me a workout even remotely comparable to that of my running sessions. Please come up with some neato workouts I could try which don't stress the ankle, so I can run strong post-rehab. Details inside. [more inside]

My Gentleman friend has gone to a detox facility, now what?

The love of my life has been admitted into a detox and rehab facility. Communication has been cut off (I'm told this is part of the process) and I have no idea how he is. I am sad, I never knew it was this bad, but he almost died of alcohol poisoning. What should I expect while he is in this facility? What will happen when he returns home? What should I do when he is home to make sure I am conveying my love and support?

Biceps tenodesis for a torn labrum? Tell me about your recovery

If anyone here has undergone a biceps tenodesis as treatment for a torn labrum, I would be very interested to hear about your experiences in surgery, rehab and how it ultimately worked out for you. Especially if you do regular weight training and/or active sports like basketball. At age 43 I'm a little nervous about this and would appreciate hearing from someone who's had this done.

Looking for a window into the mind of old time carpenters. Or a door.

So, I have a pane of glass in a wooden frame. If I call this wooden frame a door, the pane of glass is held in place with some pieces of wooden trim tacked down with some finishing nails. But, if I call this wooden frame a window, the pane of glass is held in place with glaziers points and putty. Why is this?

Help me become an expert Physical Therapist of my own body.

I have been an athlete all my life, I have had several injuries and am going through 6 months of physical therapy right now which I really like. I am then moving to a part of China where PT is near non-existent. I'd like to continue a "pre-hab" routine, and I'd like to become good at knowing which exercises to do, what my body needs, what injuries I should be looking at preventing, and noticing at the first twinge of an injury and knowing how to remedy it. I want to become an expert at my body, and keeping it injury free so I can continue sports at a competitive level for many years (I'm 30 now). I'd like to become a PT for my own body. Which books are must-reads? youtube videos? I really like stuff like this NBA Fit Youtube Video

How can I get the monkey off my back without screwing up my job?

I have a problem with intense physical anxiety. As anyone knows who has gone through this, it takes a long time before you can see a psych and get medication that works for you. I've finally done so, but in the period before getting help I relied on opiates to cope. Now I'm addicted and want to stop being dependent, but I have a new job and can't screw it up. [more inside]

Novel/alternative treatments for alcoholism?

How can I help a friend with alcoholism who has tried nearly everything? My friend is 34, female, bi-polar, suffers from depression, and has had alcohol problems since college. Multiple rehabs, jail time, medications, cognitive behavioral therapy, counseling, all the standard things have been tried at length but ultimately failed. She would like nothing more than to be able to lead a normal life, but the addition is so strong that so far, this has not been possible. What are some novel alternatives? For example, I've considered acupuncture, hypnosis, osteopathy, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.

What Was Your Rehab Experience Like in the First 24 Hours

After many years of struggling with alcoholism we finally talked my mom into going into rehab a couple of days ago. We checked her in at 2am and she was already trying to leave at 3pm the next day. She ended up not even fully discharging and walked out with only her pillow and hitched a ride to her house at 11pm that night. My question is more an inquiry about rehab. [more inside]
