I developed issues with my IT band about five years ago. It started during a long mountain run and then I started to notice pain on short runs. I eventually stopped running for almost a year and focused on cardio classes at the gym and weight lifting. Over the last few years the pain in my hip and knee flares up from time to time, and I have never been able to run more than 4 or 5 miles at a time. I've tried stretching, chiropractor, massage therapy and cortisone shot, but I can't seem to get it to go away for good. Any other ideas?View Thread
I recently had a labral tear repair in my right shoulder due to an lifting injury at work. I am trying to claim this through my Aflac accidental policy. They are saying the Labrum is not a ligament. On Wikipedia, the glenoid labrum is also listed as glenoid ligament. I know that Wikipedia is not the best medical reference, but I am just trying to find out if it I am in the right or wrong here. I have searched on Google and it is difficult to find a definitive answer. Thank you.View Thread

I am only 26, and have Patellofemoral Syndrome. I am not an athlete, but I do stand/sit a lot for long periods on time. I also walk a lot and work out moderately on the elliptical. I started to do some weight lifting with my legs, to help build the muscles stronger, but I still have pain. I have seen my doctor, but I think I may have to go back. Since my visit about a month ago, my knees feel worse. The only time they feel some relief is while walking. This whole thing is new to me, and there doesn't seem to be a lot of info on it. I don't know of anyone else who has it, and would like to just know more. Anyone have any suggestions of what else to do to relieve the pain? Thanks.View Thread
I just started swimming daily after years of not having done so. I've stayed relatively fit for my age (64) by occasionally biking, hiking, going to the gym, swimming, and doing yoga. The only thing I've done with any regularity is yoga; the others were sporadic for months or even a year or two, but not continuous dedicated. Over the years, weight has accumulated around my waist and hips. One thing that is bothering me is I seem to be congested in the upper digestive tract. I also just noticed welts appearing in my quadriceps muscles. What dietary considerations and what pacing considerations should I keep in mind as I start this regime, one that i hope to keep for the rest of my life? Should I be concerned about these welts?View Thread

About six weeks ago, I injured a tendon or muscle deep in my right hip/buttock area by doing "pigeon pose" (what yoga instructors call a "hip opener") in a yoga class . I feel the pain most intensely when I get out of bed in the morning. As I start walking/moving around, it gets less noticeable, but it has not gone away. What can be done to heal this?View Thread
