Show me photographic proof that you can correct your patella alignment by strengthening the VMO.

For patella alignment and tracking issues where the patella is too far to the outside of the knee the standard treatment is to strengthen the inner quad muscle (VMO) to pull the patella closer to the center. That makes nice sense in theory providing you can find a way to strengthen the VMO side of the quad significantly more than the opposite side... I would really like to see someone who has posted before and after pictures of their efforts to strengthen the VMO and what it did for their patella alignment. If this is what every doctor is recommending where is the photographic evidence that this actually works?

Sleep positions or other ways to help a bad back during the night?

For the past few months, I've been experiencing a lot of back pain during sleep and when I wake up. I've tried many solutions - sleeping on top of a bunch of blankets (to make my firm mattress softer), sleeping with a pillow between my legs (helps a little but not much, it seems), putting a towel under my hips, sleeping on my back, sleeping on my stomach, sleeping on my side. In a nutshell, I'm losing it and really could use some help. Anyone with a super-sensitive back who has found a comfortable way to sleep??? I have scoliosis, so that's one thing to keep in mind. Also, if one of the strategies I mentioned above worked for you, pleae don't hesitate to mention it - maybe you tried it in a different way than I did! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

Why does the first tick take so long?

When I look at an analogue clock the second hand seems to pause before racing off on its 360-degree journey, is there an explanation for this phenomenon?
