Male Organ Pain and Sports Taking Precautions
Sports are often a big part of an active man’s life and are important for many in maintaining their overall physical health. Yet on occasion sports activities can be a cause of male organ pain, definitely an unwanted consequence. Part of proper male organ health includes thinking of ways to prevent and treat male organ pain related to sports activities.
Because sports by definition involve physical activity and contact (either with another person or with an object, such as a ball), there is always the potential for some form of injury. Fortunately, male organ area injuries make up only an estimated 2 to 5 percent of all sports injuries. Yet the male organ pain that accompanies such an injury makes them well worth avoiding.
With that in mind, the following tips can help avoid manhood injury from sports.
• Warm it up. One of the most common causes of sports-related male organ pain is lack of sufficient warm-up before engaging in physical activity. This is especially true for those involved in track-related sports, or even simply jogging; however, it can apply just as easily to football, basketball, etc. Engaging in a range of stretching warm-ups can help prevent a "male organ area pull" that can cause long-lasting pain.
• Ride right. Many cyclists suffer from male member numbness, especially during long-distance races. The numbness is a problem in itself, but it can also cause a man to experience a physical injury in the area without being aware of it. There are numerous things a man can do to help prevent this, including wearing properly padded bike shorts; angling the saddle and handlebars properly; shifting weight and standing up occasionally while riding; and shortening rides as necessary.
• Wear a cup. This is a no-brainer, but many guys – especially amateur athletes – neglect to wear a proper athletic cup, even when engaging in "rough" sports like football. It’s true that a jock can sometimes be a bit uncomfortable; however, the extra protection that it affords is invaluable.
• Avoid the itch. Jock itch is a common issue for many athletes (whether they wear a cup or not). Male organ skin issues can range from a minor annoyance to actual pain, so avoiding jock itch and other dermatological issues in the area is key. Athletes can reduce the chances of jock itch by bathing after a practice or game; drying the area promptly and well after bathing; changing into fresh cotton underwear after engaging in sports; and not sharing towels or clothing with other men.
What about treating male organ pain from sports injuries? Allowing the member to rest is important; the period of rest time depends upon the severity of the injury. Applying something cold (a cold compress, a bag of frozen peas, etc.) for 10-15 minutes several times a day can also help. (Make sure to wrap the cold object in a cloth so that it does not come in direct contact with the manhood skin.) Wearing briefs is also recommended, as that should lend more support to the organ.
Sports-related male organ pain also will respond better to treatment if the organ is being kept in good overall health. Using a top-drawer male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) can be a big plus here. First, make sure the chosen crème is going to keep the skin properly hydrated; this not only prevents dermatological issues but keeps the organ supple so that it resists irritation. A crème with both a natural moisturizer (such as vitamin E) and a high-end emollient (such as Shea butter) is the best bet for hydration. In addition, find a crème with L-arginine. This enzyme aids in nitric oxide production, which in turn helps male member blood vessels to relax and expand, increasing oxygenation. A well-oxygenated male organ is a much healthier organ. Regular use of Man1 Man Oil can help maintain proper manhood health and aid in recovery from common sports injuries involving the member.
