As we age there are physiological changes that occur which are part of the natural process of getting older. Sometimes these can give rise to generalised morning stiffness in the joints, a reduction in the amount of movement in the joints and varied pain at different body regions.
Many older Australians mistakenly believe that the effect of ageing on their body’s joints is untreatable and inevitable, and they have no alternative but learn to live a lesser life with their pain. Keeping mobile is the key to your health, happiness and independence.
