You may not realise how much movement you are missing or attribute it to getting older. The body is very adaptable, skipping over painful movements and restricted areas by adjusting your posture throughout your body.
As the body becomes more imbalanced and restricted an ever-growing list of symptoms and syndromes are experienced. Your 'individual trauma imprint' creates your unique list of symptoms.
These pains have many labels - fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, chondritis, and a myriad of other conditions but are due to inadequate use of the main muscles of movement and the resulting effects of the body not being balanced and aligned.
Chronic physical pain is detrimental to mental health. Stress, anxiety, depression. Self-doubt, feelings of hypochondria.
The more trauma you've suffered and the more active you've been stressing your body without the support of the main muscles of movement, the more damage will be stored on your body, so the clinical signs of dysfunction in the usage of your muscles will be noted at a younger age and progress at a faster rate.
