Age problems – how can you protect yourself?
<br />
Why your accident history matters now and may affect your future quality of life.
<br /> Following an accident everything may infact be okay. However, following an accident that results in an injury, an affected joint will work sub optimally and a chain of joints, such as your spine, will create an adapted pattern of movement to ‘get around’ the problem of the affected joint. Your body is very adaptable which is good, However, years and years of adapted joint movement are likely to cause stress and wear on affected joints with symptoms and damage to follow. Being checked and having limited joint function diagnosed and treated by a health professional who is skilled in joint assessment may be considered an investment in your future health and wellbeing.

questions for you to consider regarding pain
<br /> Some pain is chronic and familiar and some pain is a warning of danger. Pain can become familiar. We can begin to find it 'normal', a sign of getting older for example. HOWEVER, If you have back / body pain that is; not aggravated by movement, is new and severe, is rapidly worsening beware! Seek a health professional / medical opinion or go to hospital to ensure that you are safe.
We are proactive about safety but are we proactive about our health?
<br /> Creating and sustaining good health is an active process. However, in our society, we tend towards a superficial 'set & forget' view of health and become shocked when apparent good health gives way to poor health rather living 'healthy lives'.
