Q. i play basketball and i suffer from bad knee, what can i do to make it better and still i'll be able to play??

AWhat you describe may actually be "chondromalacia patella" - damage to the cartilage of the knee due to overuse injury. It's usually treated with physiotherapy (mainly strengthening the quadriceps and hamstrings muscles) and supporting devices.

However, I'm not very keen on making diagnosis over the net, so you may want to consult a doctor (e.g. orthopedic surgeon) in order to diagnose it and receive the appropriate treatment.

Q. what is a sentimental abuse? in what ways does it show? i think my boyfriend is abusing me and playing with

my emotions , does it call "Sentimental Abuse" , who do i need to see to get over it ?
A1In any situation any kind of abuse is wrong... If he is playing with your emotions sometimes it is good to see a councellor or someone you can talk to to get your feelings out in the open, sometimes it works sometimes it don't.... I just got out of an abusive relationship although it was not my emotions he was playing with it still helped to seek out someone that will listen maybe give suggestions on how you can either get out or fix the problem.
A2Me personally, I dont think that it takes two for abuse. Somepeople are just mean and you dont have to do anything to them for them to abuse you. If you feel that you are in an abusive relationship then you need to figure out a way to get out and quickly before things get worse. You do not have to take abuse from anyone. If you do decide to get out of the relationship dont fall back in so easily....if he/she says they didn't mean it or that they will change, make them prove it to you before you get back in a relationship with you. You don't have to be scared, there are plenty of people out there willing to help. I'm no counselor but I'm here if you need anything. Here are a few sites on abuse:
Hope this helps and that your situation gets better.
A3for any abuse you need two parties. it doesn't matter if he "abuses" you if you do not cooperate with him. i think that the whole definition of "sentimental abuse" is crap. everyday people hurt other people feelings. it's not a good thing to do but shouldn't be called an "abuse".
remember - you need two for Tango.

It is terrible, that such a young man like you has already such problems. Please report about your experiences and pinch me on this site. Thank you!
A2no medication will "cure" you. it can ease pain but pain is usually there for a reason, it says- something is wrong. there are numerous tests that an orthopedic Dr. can preform. here is a web site with information about knee problems,screening methods and treatments:

Q. I was shocked to note that genes play a vital role in building muscles Is this possible?

I am , 20 years old. I am always dreaming to build muscle like my favorite hero who maintains 8 abs. Anybody can dream but to live that dream is a difficult task. Out of curiosity, I had discussed my desire to build muscles with my friends. But I was shocked to note that genes play a vital role in building muscles. My family doesn’t have a history of muscles and this fact has put me in to a difficult situation. Is this possible…If so, how can I live my dream? If the family doesn’t have a history of muscle growth, then what happens to the generation which follows them? I need a positive feedback to my query……
A1there's a genetic potential for fitness, like there is a genetic connection and potential for inelegance. but no matter how smart are your parents- if you won't study you won't live that potential, and some one who doesn't have that genetic ability and will study- will be better. the same thing with physical fitness.
A2First of all, I wish to appreciate your friend’s knowledge in the area of fitness. It is indeed a fact that genes play a vital role in determining the muscle power. The genetic factors include the number of muscle cells, the length of muscle bellies, muscle fiber arrangement and muscle cell types which plays a vital role in the building up of muscles. No matter how much vigorous training that we undertake, we cannot beat our genetic predisposition. Hey! Come on! I hope you are not planning to participate in the show but willing to build muscle. You can go ahead with the routine exercises and develop muscles in the normal way without making a comparison which hinders your confidence. It is needless to worry at this stage to simply gain muscle power.
