A Pain Free Lifestyle

So how do you go abot living a pain free life? what do you do if you want to avoid pain or get rid of pain that you have? These days pain is very common. Many people suffer from many different ailments and diseases that cause lots of pain on a regular basis. Many people are in pain constantly and don’t know how to get out of it.One of the best things to do to get out of pain and to stay out of pain is to exercise. Our bodies are not meant to be sedintary. We are not designed to be sitting all day in front of a computer followed by an evening of television watching.¬†Our bodies were designed to move. The old adage of “use it or lose it” is very true. If you do not use your body, stregthen it up, keep it in shape, then you will start loosing use of your body. As you age you will be able to less and less. You will loose muscle mass and range of motion. You will find it harder and harder to get out of a chair, to sleep, to walk, to even turn your head. The less you exercise the more osteo-arthritis will set in. Osteo-arthritis is the degeneration of a joint. If you have a trauma when you are young (such as a car accident, a bad fall, sprots injury, etc) the area that was injured will be more susceptable to arthritis in the future. That will be the first place that you’ll feel arthritic pain and start to loose use of that joint. I am sure you all know someone who is older, or even middle age, and can not get out of a chair without pain, can not turn their neck without pain, can’t raise their arms without pain. And slowly this pain will increase and the use of the joint and range of motion will decrease.With exercise however, you will be able to preserve the joint and keep it moving through its normal range of motion and maintain use of the joint. Exercise helps to keep joints and your entire body healhty and functioning the way it is suppossed to. Exercise is the most important thing you can do for your health. And it is something that you have to continue doing for the rest of your life if you want to reap the benefits of it.If you are not exercising now, or haven’t exercised in over a month, then you need to start back at the beginning. Start out too easy. For the first few weeks don’t worry about getting a workout in. Just get into the groove of exercising. Get your body used to exercising. Get used to the schedule of when works to exercise and when it doesn’t work to exercise. Start out by doing some form of low impact cardio-vascular training. Walk, if you can, easily for 20 minutes three times a week. If you can not walk then try the elliptical machine or stationary bike, or a water aerobics class. Just move some. It will make a difference. But remember, don’t go hard the first few weeks. You have to get in shape to start exercising.Thank you,Josh Cohen
