Unhappy The Pec Tear that Won't Heal... HELP!!

14 months ago I was decline bench pressing 285 pounds (a lot for me considering I weigh only 170), and on my third repetition I felt a sharp pain in my left armpit which prevented me from pushing the bar up anymore. It was pretty painful for a couple of days, but it eventually subsided. After...

Lately, when I bend backward, like for a full bridge, or the cow pose of cat-cow, I get a sharp pain in the middle of my spine. Not really lower or upper back, but right in the middle.

Fractured talus - replacement exercises needed

I've got four fractures in my talus, and two grade 2 tears in the ankle ligaments.

Rotator cuff tendinitis - rest or keep it active?

It's really difficult to find a consensus on whether one should rest their rotator cuff when it's inflamed and especially for how long. I guess it's sensible to rest for at least 5 days until the inflammation has gone down, but for how long should one really keep rotator cuff activity to a minimum?...
