    Question
    1.Can some gentle exercises for osteoarthritis in the back (recommended in a book about osteoarthritis in the back) do any harm to an 87 yr old woman who is not as yet open to the TMS way of thinking (wondering if a sugar pill or strengthening exercises may be better than nothing)?

    2.Can prolapses cause horrible pain or is that all TMS?

    3.Does anyone know of a documentary about TMS?

    Answer
    1. No. Gentle exercises are great! Exercise in general is great. The only reason we talk about exercise sometimes not being beneficial in the TMS world is because often times we are exercising in hopes of getting rid of our pain. This is not useful when our pain is TMS/Psychogenic in nature.

    2. Good question, and that is something I would ask a TMS physician. Until I get more information, I’m not comfortable saying one way or the other.

    3. Yes! There’s a documentary coming out soon called “All The Rage.” Here’s a link to more information: http://rumur.com/all-the-rage/
