Do you remember when you could do anything you wanted to do and nothing hurt? When did knees and ankles and hips and shoulders and so on start to hurt, and why can’t you recover as you used to? I don’t like it when people say they are just getting old. People say that to me at all ages. What I say is this: it isn’t necessary to become immobile as we get older, to hurt all the time or to feel that you shouldn’t take that hike, run that 5K or even that marathon, sit on the floor with your children or grandchildren, spend the day at a museum, walk around the lake, travel to that wonderful place you have dreamed of. It is so disappointing to imagine that those things are not possible, and there are things that can be done to allow you to feel much better. I do understand. I am 61 years old and I can’t believe it. I feel like I am 37, or even 27. And my body sometimes does betray me, but I am a stubborn woman, and I still want to be active. And as a chiropractor and natural health care provider, I want to help you stay active too (it might be good to have a determined stubborn doctor in your corner rooting for you). If you are less active than you want to be, with baby steps, I believe that you can become more involved in the activities you love, or even take up new activities. So come join me to talk about these things, see how to have more energy and less pain and get back to living your amazing life!
