Here’s Why…

Do you find yourself wondering how and when you got so old? 

Are you waking up with achy joints each morning finding it harder and harder to get out of bed? 

Does it take you a while to get moving in the morning or after sitting too long? 

You’re not alone! 

This happens to a lot of people as they enter into their 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s. So why does this happen?

There are 2 big reasons so many people experience achy joints, stiffness or pain as they age.

Reason #1

As we age, years of poor posture, habits, and joint strain accumulate, exacerbated by busy careers and family life. We spend hours at desks, run around with our kids, and become less active overal

Even if we are engaging in regular exercise, our muscles do more sitting than moving and therefore they are not as cooperative as we need them to be during that run or weight-lifting session. 

This leads to compensation and a host of other problems. Our muscles become less and less supportive of our joints and that’s when they begin to yell and scream each morning or throughout the day. 

Reason #2

Another major cause of achy joint and stiffness, often overlooked by traditional healthcare, is the heightened toxicity of our diets and environments. This leads to chronic inflammation within the body.
That inflammation in our joints does not feel good and leads to stiffness and pain. 

The typical American diet is filled with processed foods loaded with chemicals, dyes, and sugars, lacking essential nutrients. It’s high in inflammation-triggering substances like gluten, dairy, and meat while lacking nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables. 

All of this puts stress on our body’s immune system creating chronic inflammation throughout the body. The problem is, most people just accept this as a fact of aging and think that they just have to live with it! 

I’m here to tell you that is NOT the truth.

Here at Empower, we help people every day to learn how to move better, stay active, and create healthy lifestyle habits that promote quick recovery and renewed vitality. 

In fact, let me tell you about my client Mike.

Every morning, he battled severe achy joint stiffness, necessitating a hot shower and stretching just to start his day. Despite his active job and lifestyle, he had to be cautious not to overexert himself, as it led to days or even weeks of discomfort. His favorite activities, such as hiking and running, became off-limits due to this.

After working with us, not only does Mike no longer need to stretch AT ALL to get going in the morning… but he is more active for longer periods (with NO pain the next day) than he was 10 years ago! 

So my question is, are you going to be one of those people that just accept painful achy joints or stiffness as a part of aging?

Or are you going to be like Mike – searching for a real solution NOW, so that you can enjoy the life you imagined for years to come…
