What kind of doctor will see me in an emergency room (ER)?
An emergency medicine physician will see you in the emergency room (ER). This physician has completed special training in emergency medicine after finishing medical school. If you are admitted to the hospital for overnight stay from the ER, a hospital physician will see you as well as any specialists who may need to be involved in your care.
Should I train traditionally or functionally?
National Academy of Sports Medicine answered
Both. Most people associate exercising with a traditional approach including barbells, dumbbells, and weight machines. Traditional use of this equipment is beneficial for establishing a program to increase baseline strength. Currently, people are growing more familiar with functional training which directs your exercise selection based on your lifestyle. Functional training is training that makes your day to day activates more enjoyable or easier to perform. Luckily, these two ideas are not mutually exclusive. You can train for functionality using traditional exercise equipment and movement patterns. Regardless of the type of training you decide to do, it is important to establish a consistent flexibility routine to ensure your muscles are at the proper length and your joints are able to move optimally. Regular static stretching helps ensure that your joints are moving optimally and reduces your risk of injury.
