You should have no trouble finding one in Massachusetts. ...Read more

Injured my ankle and after 2 months it is still inflamed and very painful, i can't point my toes out straight and straighten my ankle, what is it? Tnx

Ankle sprains can take a while, but you are relating a lot of inflammation. Under normal circumstances, there is bound to be some stiffness, but not so much inflammation. Ankle sprains could also be a "subchondral fracture" of the ankle. ...Read more

When i feel my spine, it feels like it has 2 dents in it. One by my neck and another in the middle of my back. What posture is correct? To fix it

When i feel my spine, it feels like it has 2 dents in it. One by my neck and another in the middle of my back. What posture is correct? To fix it

Proper posture: A properly balanced spine keeps the head centered over the pelvis as viewed from both the front and the side. It is normal to have the so called "dents" as previously explained. Best way to maintain "perfect" posture is practice with a book on your head. Balance the book, and your head is balanced. Now, remember this position. The curves that exist when balanced are your normal curves. ...Read more
