MOVEMENT & MOBILITY ARE VITAL PARTS OF HEALTHY AGING IN FOX CHAPEL
I commonly hear patients tell me that they just don’t move as well as they used to and that it is probably from old age. While they are partially correct you should not let age dictate how well you move. Movement is a part of everyday life. Just think what your life would be like if you can’t move. While aging can present challenges to your ability to move one of the best things you can do for your health both now and into the future is to try and stay mobile and active. The reality is that, yes as we age our bodies do start to change and not function as well as they used to, but this can be held off. Aging makes it harder to stay active but rarely makes it impossible. You will need to work harder as you age to stay mobile and active. Studies have shown a correlation between inactivity and morbidity. This is not surprising. If you are not able to move as much as you want you are more likely to develop illnesses and issues that can negatively affect your life.

OK SO STAYING MOBILE MATTERS BUT WHAT CAN I DO?
Well, you need to work on your mobility just like you would work on any other skill, talent, or ability. You need to spend time working on your mobility on a regular basis. This means performing exercises on a regular basis. Exercise is the key to mobility. Once you start to lose your mobility exercise and stretches can help you to regain what you once had. If you are someone who has never had the mobility that you wanted exercise can also help you to gain mobility that you never had before. You need to make sure you are performing the right exercises and a variety of them. Performing the same incorrect exercise over and over can actually hurt your mobility so it is important to vary your exercises and perform them correctly.
