It's only old age catching up with me...
What complete Bunkum!!!
Aging does not need to mean living in pain
I get very upset when someone tells me.. "oh I'm getting sore and achy because I am getting old"
I'm not upset at them- but at the thinking that a persons age means it is right that they experience pain.
This is so far from the truth...
Aging is no excuse for pain!
I see far too many people at Moon Haven who accept that growing older means that they will experience a variety of body pains and dysfunctions.
What is even more disturbing is that they will often defer talking to a medical professional because they think it is just 'old age catching up with them".
And it is not only the over 70's who report aged related pain... I've had 30 and 40 year olds telling me they expect to feel sore and stiff in the mornings because they are getting older!
Pain Free is our Natural State
Our bodies are meant to run pain free..and freely.
Sure there are times when we get an occasional twinge or a momentary pain which we can disregard. But continuous, intense, debilitating pain should be investigated.
Yes - even if you think it is caused by arthritis, from overuse or plain old bad posture you should find out why you are in pain.
Pain is a red flag
You see, pain is a symptom, a red flag, a signal that something is not right...that there is a process that is out of whack somewhere....and that we should pay attention to it. Most importantly we should also DO something about it.
Pain does not automatically occur because we get older. There are many older people living totally pain free lives. Sure they may move a little slower and they may not have as full a range of movement as a teenager - but they are living a full and free moving lifestyle - because that is the norm... it is what our bodies are meant to do. it's how we should be...naturally!
So if you are experiencing pain... and you've been putting it down to getting older.. then it may be time ot investigate. Talk to your health professional of choice or call in to Moon Haven and talk to us about what is happening. We should be able to point you in the right direction.
