HAGERSTOWN -- An interest that began with a high school sports injury is turning into a career in helping others for a 2004 North Hagerstown High School graduate who began classes this summer for a physical therapy degree at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Corrie Jones, 22, said she was inspired to become a physical therapist after she tore her ACL, one of the ligaments that connects the bones of the knee joint, running hurdles in track her senior year of high school. Jones, who was training for college soccer, feared the injury would end her soccer aspirations, but her therapist at the Center for Joint Surgery and Sports Medicine helped her through.

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?
