Many Doctors continue to misinform patients on both the causes of joint pain and treatment necessary to alleviate it. The cure to joint pain is not about popping a few pills and resting your tush in the hopes the pain will go away. This is only suppresses the symptoms of millions who are given this advice, only to later find their condition has progressed further. Here are 5 myths the medical profession is still insisting on when it comes to joint pain.
Imagine what your life would be like without joint pain. What if throbbing, aching joints never made you think twice about doing the activities you used to enjoy? Imagine being able to play 18 holes of golf effortlessly or sit through a movie without getting stiff. How about being able to get out of bed in the morning without feeling those creaks and pops, ready to take on the day?
Staying Active Is the Fountain of Youth
Here's a simple truth to remember. Nothing does more for your quality of life and longevity than staying active as you age. And what usually keeps people from staying active is some combination of believing that aches and pains are a NORMAL part of the aging process, and quite simply, bad advice from their doctors. Despite what your doctor might tell you, there's an underlying cause for joint pain that may have nothing to do with your age. (More on that later). But first, it's important to understand that the conventional approach to joint pain is basically to band-aid the issue with painkillers.
