Exercise All Evils
by Robert Babb, PT, MBA
A short essay to help therapists lead patients from the temptations of inactivity.
Joint pain, spine pain, stomach pain, sciatica, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, cancer pain–the list grows longer as folks age. I often wonder what makes my patients “give up” because of the pain. I wonder what it means to “give up,” what it is they are “giving up,” and what evils lie beneath that prevent them from experiencing a good day of get up and go.
