    I also have a couple issues I was hoping someone could help me understand and put a name to... First off the muscles running along both sides of my spine are always incredibly tight, I have been told that I have a vertebrae that twists left and right and sometimes my ribs dislocate there as well.. Is there a name for this? And my hip sometimes seems to pop out of place (I assume its related to my sacroiliac joint) is that normal?

    Looking for REALLY good pain specialist in Eastern MA

    I have had chronic, constant back pain for 14 years. Now I also have chronic bursitis in both knees and one hip. I'm told I have "chronic pain syndrome", whatever the heck that is.

    Got bit by a dog

    Hi! I got bit by a dog last weekend and a few hours after I was limping because it was on my upper thigh close to my butt. Well it has bruised pretty badly and the swelling hasn't gone down and it still hurts to put pressure on that leg for an extended period of time, the bruise is warm to the touch also. The dog was never able to break my skin because I had jeans on and a shirt that went a little past that area. I don't know what to do for the stupid bite.

    shoulder pain

    I was diagnosed with "frozen shoulder". X ray showed mild arthosis. Dr injected me with cortison in February, and pain was gone almost immediatelly for about 3 months. Now pain is back... Just noticed that when I am at the beach for a few hours pain is milder or non existing. This is a fact, everytime I go the the beach I notice that. However next day after beach pain is back. So the question would be what factors associated with beach make my shoulder pain go away? What could be a possible....

    Left Hip Pain

    Hello, everyone. You can read my biography by clicking on my user name. In 2015 I had both hips replaced - my right in June and left in November.

I did not fall, but slipped and "wrenched" my left hip. The pain is more towards the groin and in my left buttocks cheek, with pain and tingling radiating down my left leg (thigh....
