There is so much in life that adults experience as an individual. Whether the experience is good or bad and physical or emotional, the body endures and remembers those moments. Adults lived through the falls of childhood, stresses of the teen years, and the rigorous strides towards self-identity as an adult. Often time ailments will appear and you may not realize it was due to a restriction in your body that occured in the past and only now present itself because the body is no longer able to compensate for all the stacking stresses placed upon it.
People often believe that because of age they must live with the daily aches, pains, and stiffness. It is true that with age there is an increase of problems such as arthritis, carpal tunnel, shoulder/back pain, neck stiffness, arthritic knees and hips. What most people don’t realize is that something can be done to help them live life without or less of those discomfort.

Often times less medication is needed or surgery could be prevented.
