Are you climbing your number of years in age faster than you can climb the stairs?
Do you feel that your body is not what it used to be?
Have you had any recent falls or perhaps a near miss?
Do you feel that your physical capacity and ability is hindering other important aspects of your life?
As we grow older, our bodies grow older. This is not something that you should be ashamed, nor deterred by. There are known physiological changes that occur in our body as a result of the ageing process.
If you overstretch, overstress, strain, sprain, tear or rupture an anatomical structure in your body, the rehabilitation process can sometimes seem painful, overwhelming and daunting. Factors such as time off work for both rest and appointments and time away from competitive sport or training can feed into the negative conundrum of injuring oneself. Sometimes, it is challenging to know how to self manage your injury, leading to questions such as; do I use ice or heat?, do I rest it or move it?, should I go and get a scan?, should I use a brace? Rest assured, you are not on your own and this article chooses to answer one of those questions in particular; should I use a brace or not?
