We’ve all seen it. The Facebook post or video clip of an 80-something-year-old deadlifting or squatting her bodyweight. While so many people see this person as an exception to what the human body was meant to do past a certain age, I see it as a challenge to us all.
“I think I’m just getting too old” is probably the number one line I hear in my practice. It usually comes on the heels of listing a litany of symptoms. I used to let this talk slide, until I realized just how much “feeling too old” was interfering with people’s healing.
