AB-Inforcer helps Arthritis Sufferer
|— Sandy Ruben: 65 year old retired Librarian. (Results may vary based on individual)|
My aching joints would get progressively worse. I decided to fight back. I tried anything and everything I heard about….deleting certain veggies from my diet, creams, doses of vinegar, taking various herbs and meds. Nothing curbed the aches. Then I noticed that my hands were changing shape and that I was walking with a new gait to compensate for pain. This led to corrective foot surgeries. I consulted an orthopedist for chronic ankle pain. When he detected no bone problems, he suggested physical therapy. That worked! I now knew that, with my arthritis, it was important to keep my muscles strong. It was frightening to know that my posture and walking stride had evolved so that I moved in whatever way helped me avoid pain. I knew that this would mean continued joint deterioration and possibly joint replacement. Time to try a personal trainer, hit the gym, and see if I could re-train my mind to sense proper posture. I had to learn that what felt right was really wrong.
