Sensible advice for aches, pains & injuries

Where Does It Hurt? Very detailed guides to specific injuries & other painful problems

The main painful topics on are stubborn pain problems like trigger points (poorly named, but incredibly common, and often confused with muscle strain), neck pain and low back pain (of course), and common repetitive strain injury like plantar fasciitis, shin splints and the two kinds of runner’s knee, one of which I’ve had in spades (IT band syndrome) and the one lots of non-runners get (patellofemoral pain).

But that’s the tip of the iceberg.

Many articles and several book-length tutorials about specific painful problems are listed below, and there are dozens more about treatments and therapies, the nature of pain, and much more.

Head, neck & throat

Back & torso

Shoulders, elbows, wrists & hands

Legs, knees & feet
