Common Shoulder Issues With Age
By: Dr. Beth Templin
As you age, your body may experience some predictable changes. One of those changes is in your shoulders. Many people begin to experience stiffness and pain in their shoulders. This starts to affect their ability to perform every day activities like reaching overhead, washing their hair, fastening a bra or putting on a coat.
Though it may be common with age, developing shoulder issues is not a normal or inevitable part of the aging process. Most often, these issues are caused by weakness and lack of flexibility from several years of declining use of the shoulders. Fortunately, there are activities you can perform to prevent these issues from developing or worsening.
Dr. Beth helps adults 55+ maximize their independence and fitness, so they can continue to enjoy a full and active life.
