One elbow clicks while lowering overhead press. Fixes/workarounds?

My left elbow clicks on the medial side while I'm lowering the barbell during overhead press. It feels like a tendon's out of alignment and is having problems sliding over the bone or something - maybe an early case of golfer's elbow, but I don't know. It happens every rep, and has gotten more pronounced over a few sessions. My right elbow doesn't do this, and my form looks symmetrical. [more inside]

Strength Training for the Bendy

Are you aware of any strength-training resources geared towards people with hypermobility syndromes? If you are yourself a hypermobile person who lifts weights or does any other type of strength training, do you have insights to share? I have joint hypermobility issues throughout my body which make me very prone to tendinitis, sprains, tenosynovitis and other injuries. In the past, when I have undertaken fairly conservative strength training programs under the supervision of experienced, qualified personal trainers, I have always injured myself. [more inside]

Advice needed re physical therapy

I am a 42 year-old who needs to get into shape. After trying and failing numerous times, I finally found a methodology I really enjoy. It is a boot camp at the local park. It is fun, different every time, encouraging, and worth getting out of bed at 5:15 am for. However, I've tweaked my knee, need physical therapy, and I have some questions. [more inside]

Med mystery #436: what does the following pattern of symptoms suggest?

What started as an overuse injury has bloomed into a shape-shifting pain octopus, over two and a bit years. I’m not sure which pains mean what, or what to emphasize with my rheumatologist. (Maybe this is about me and maybe it isn’t, but I’ll say it’s me for the purposes of this hypothetical question, and nobody’s my doctor, either.) [more inside]

I just don't want to be "the girl with the messed up hand" for the next two months.

I have De Quervain’s tenosynovitis. I have to wear a brace on my wrist for the next long while. All the braces I've found are hideous and scream "SMPA is injured and has no style," which is taking me right back to that time when I was a kid in school and I'm hating it (and don't get me started on the bowling jokes at work.) Are there functional yet cute or pretty braces out there? What is the solution to this, besides "suck it up, you should have paid more attention to ergonomics?" [more inside]

What shoes should I buy?

I have a burning ache in the outer edge of both feet most nights. It centers on a point about halfway down where there is a little bump. From what I can figure out online I think it may be peroneal insertional tendonitis. I was wondering if anyone has had experience with this problem and what shoes I might buy to alleviate the problem.

Alternatives to running while recovering from peroneal tendonitis?

I've been forced to take a break from running due to peroneal tendonitis (developed during week 6 of the Couch to 5K program). Can you give me some ideas for alternative types of exercises that will not aggravate the peroneal tendon? I plan to try biking, but I'm wondering what other options are out there. I do not have access to a pool. Thanks!

Tendonitis: cure or lifelong treatment?
