Sometimes the joint ache just happens, most are not sure what day or what year it started. Busy in life, with kids, in work, with the community, there is no time to give joint pain some attention, so you plow through it, never seeking a solution to end it.
For many, plowing through it led to creeping joint pain, slowly over a period of years limiting function and loss of efficiencies (quality of life). The pain increases a little more each year. Over time, the loss in everyday performance will catch everyone that doesn’t create time to step out to work on their body.
If the consequence of only working in our body is the loss of efficiencies in our function and pain, then certainly the reward of carving time to work on your body is a more effective and pain-free lifestyle. When you do schedule the time, the trade-off is a higher quality of daily functional performance to do more.
So it seems the solution is you.
One hundred and sixty-eight hours are ahead of you this week, consider a solution this week by taking one of them to schedule some time with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. There is no limitation in scheduling, there is no requirement for a prescription.
When you get some guidance on how to work on, instead of in, your body, the rewards will surprise you.
