A few months back I presented two of the more common causes of upper back or rib pain on breathing.

“It hurts to breathe.” Have you ever said these words?

Sometimes the pain you feel comes from an area other than where it hurts. Sometimes the problem is caused by an adjacent tissue, and others times from a distant, seemingly unrelated structure.

So here’s a new one for me: I woke up yesterday morning with a very sore ring fingernail on my left hand. I felt it as I staggered to the bathroom still ninety percent asleep. I bumped my hand against the wall, “Ow!” What the heck? I rubbed the edge of the nail a few…

I have been teaching sports injuries assessment and treatment to doctors for over a decade. Relative to complex injuries of the shoulder or hip, knee injuries are somewhat simple to assess.
