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?

Today you have an abundance of options for thirst-quenching drinks. These tantalizing drinks may, however, add a significant number of calories to your daily intake. Sweet tea and other sugary drinks can contain 50 to 100 calories per 8-ounce serving. In addition to extra calories, these drinks have very little nutritive value. Of particular concern are children who may be drinking these less nutritious beverages instead of milk, which helps build strong bones and teeth and is a source of protein for growing kids.

I talk to a lot of people every day who are frustrated because they can't seem to make progress in the pursuit of their fitness goals. When I examine their current regimen, I often find they are using a program that looks like it was designed for a completely different person. Whether they got the program from the latest edition of their favorite fitness magazine, or from a friend who got it from the Internet, it's just not the right program for their level of experience or current goals.

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.
