Pectoralis minor: Far from a minor problem
By Heidi Dawson
Pectoralis minor is the smaller sibling of the larger and more talked about pectoralis major. But for such a small, seemingly insignificant muscle, it can sure cause some problems. The pec minor is found underneath its larger partner, originating from ribs 3, 4 and 5 and passing superiorly and laterally to attach to the coracoid process of the scapula. Its functions are to stabilize the scapula, as well as depressing, protracting and downwardly rotating it. When the scapula is fixed, pec minor will also assist in elevating the ribcage. OK, so we know where it is and what it does. But why is it often so troublesome?

Posture and exercise: Key points for reducing neck and back pain in the sedentary worker
Advance for Physical Therapy & Rehab Medicine
Many people who sit for long periods of time have complaints of neck and back pain. Since gravity is constantly pulling down on our bodies, causing muscle imbalances throughout the neck and back, it's not hard to understand why people complain of discomfort. Fortunately, there are methods for preventing discomfort in the sedentary working class. Educating your patients on proper sitting technique, simple exercises that can be performed in the workplace and the correct ergonomic workstation setup can prevent or alleviate the majority of musculoskeletal ailments common for those who sit for long periods at a desk or computer.

By Charlotte Bohnett
If you've done any shopping lately, you might have noticed the influx of pink and red decorations, the increase of candy displays and the uptick of jewelry commercials. Hallmark's favorite holiday is upon us. Of course, no holiday is without unfortunate incidents — not even the lovey, dovey Valentine's Day.

Vets prescribing physical therapy for pets
The Associated Press via Coeur d'Alene Press
Physical therapy for pets is one of the fastest-growing areas of veterinary medicine, aimed at helping achy, injured or post-operative animals feel better. Animal care experts say physical therapy for animals is based on the same tenets as it is for people and is frequently executed by the same practitioners. Treatment options include therapeutic exercise programs — many of which feature underwater treadmills, at least for dogs — to strengthen muscles; manual therapy to mobilize tight muscles and joints; cold laser therapy and sports conditioning. Rehab also could include stretching and using some standard equipment, such as balance boards, clinicians say.
