Dear Fitness Answer Man: I've been having pain in my shoulder and both arms and have tried accupuncture and massage therapy so far. My new doctor and I decided together that we would now try anti-inflamatory drugs and physical therapy to build the muscle opposing those that are sore. Since then, I've become aware that my posture while sitting and lying down might be the true root cause of problem. What do you think? And what sort of professional could I turn to? A specialist in musculoskeletal injuries?
