  • What could be the reason behind mid back pain?

    Mid-back pain can be caused by many things with the musculoskeletal system being just one of them. Do you recall an incident that may have precipitated the pain? A new exercise program, lifting routine, or perhaps sitting for longer than normal at a computer or tablet? A differential diagnosis will include pain referred from the lungs and even the gallbladder. If it is positional, it may more likely be due to muscle strain or a subluxation of the vertebrae. Does massage, heat, or rest improve it? Again, this would be more likely if it is coming from the muscles or spine. If it persists, I would recommend an X-ray. READ MORE

  • exercise

    My suggestion is isometric exercises where the muscles surrounding the knee joint are contracted without putting a strain on the joints themselves. A weakness of the quadriceps muscles (4 muscles in the front of the thigh) is often associated with knee pain in arthritic and non-arthritic knees. I would begin with simple straight leg lifts in a supine position (back-lying). You can find other examples of isometric exercises online. READ MORE
