October 15, 2015: Throughout October, National Physical Therapy Month, the American Physical Therapy Association is providing resources to help people learn how to #AgeWell.
One of the things the #AgeWell campaign makes clear is that you shouldn’t wait until you’re feeling the effects of aging to start thinking about your long-term health.
In this episode of Move Forward Radio, a physical therapist talks about trends he sees in the clinic and provides age-specific advice for healthy aging.

As you look towards your golden years are you anticipating a life of leisure? While that can be a good thing, if balanced with activity, it can be highly counter-productive; producing life-threatening results. While daily activity can provide strategic defense against disease, the contrary will tend to advance it.
It's never too late to start an exercise program. If you are afraid of falling or hurting yourself, talk with your health care provider or insurance company. Many provide resources to address these concerns and may even offer personal training. Another great resource is Go4Life.
According to Dr. Richard Hodes, director of the National Institute on Aging at the National Institute of Health, "Exercise is the best-demonstrated way to maintain health, fitness, and independence."
Our human body is a beautiful, intricate system that functions at its best when WE INVEST in OURSELVES! When we INVEST IN OURSELVES, when we consciously care for each part of the whole: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self. If we neglect even just one seemingly small part of our body's system, our whole body tends not to function at its highest potential.
To enjoy a long, healthy and vibrant life, embrace these ten key areas: Love yourself..keep learning...laugh...exercise..eat well and healthy.
Floss your teeth...etc.
Treat and Heal depression...etc.
De-mess to De-stress...etc,
Connect with your spiritual self...etc.
Those of us on the Feisty Side of Fifty know we need to take extra good care of our bodies and our minds as we age. Join us as Dr. Ayati, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Stanford University, and Dr. Azarani, CEO and Founder of Protogen Consulting, join us to share the latest research findings and tips from their book, Paths to Healthy Aging.

Aging parents may be more controlling, meddling, jealously, demanding, fault, aggressiveness, or plays the victim when you just want to give them a comfortable and safe quality of life. Their behaviors stem from a variety of changes in their lives. Put yourself in their shoes, the loss of a spouse, friend's passing, failure completely drive, handling the changes in their health, encountering the need for help or the failure of their overall independence. A parent may have always been abstinent; however, the behaviors may intensify with confusion and fears.

Today’s topic: Pang
What does it have to do with Get Healthy Now?
Why this sound? How does it make you feel?
Something or someone comes to an abrupt stop.
X-Rays, shoulder dislocated, stiff due to 15 hrs delay
ER Dr tried 3 x, put me out, shoulder in.
Why am I telling this story? Ways to get redirected after a pang. My reflections: glad it was not worse, glad I could get up, happy shoulder was put back in place, life goes on. After every fall or pang, get up and do, be and give your best again. No need to get depressed, no need to feel sorry for yourself, look at your life being fully balanced and bounce back. I chose my balance over imbalance just because I was in pain.
In every situation we get to chose the outcome as long as we live.
Start laughing as quickly as possible as it releases the good, healing endorphins. It also helps you balance quicker and the pain subsides faster.
OK, what comes after Pang? Get up!
Don’t let a fall hinder you from following your dream. Sometimes we need to fall forward to get stronger and better at what we are doing,
Pang! / Get up!

Always verify first before blindly believing. Hearing is one thing, believing another.
When in doubt, ask your doctor, dietician, coach, counselor…. Or better yet, do your own research to verify.
