Aging is not equivalent to pain

Dr. Kristina Fruechtl Blog

A lot of people seem to think that getting older just means they will have more physical pain.  While it is highly common with age to develop some arthritic joint changes and pain, you do have some control over this.  It does take some thinking though, because if you continue to do what you’ve always done, you will get more of what you’ve already got.

Here is a link from PubMed, a well known medical literature site, that offers an abstract from an article on pain, function and quality of life:

This piece doesn’t offer any advice on how to manage pain or improve it, but it does provide some awareness to get your brain stimulated about the fact that  your biology is not your destiny.
