Description

When it comes to aging, the general school of thought is that pain and deterioration are just part of the deal. But what if it doesn’t have to be this way? What if there was a way to mitigate, or even reverse this decline? What if there was a way to feel younger and stronger? Fortunately, our expert today, Eileen Kopsaftis, can talk about common misconceptions around aging and show us why there’s nothing natural about physical deterioration. 

Eileen is a physical therapist, founder of Have Lifelong Wellbeing, author of the book Pain Culprits: Surprising Truths Behind Pain, How to Uncover the Cause, and What to Do about It, and for over two decades, she’s been helping people resolve pain and experience lasting wellbeing.

Today, she’s with us to discuss what it means to actually age well, and dramatically improve the quality of your life!

“If someone has back pain, it’s almost never their back. Even if things show up on imaging because there is really no correlation between what shows up on imaging and the symptoms people experience. There has been study after study after study after study that shows just as many people have a bulging disk and no pain, as there are those who do have pain. Now, I’m not saying the disc would never cause pain, but the majority of the time it’s not what shows up on imaging that’s actually causing the problem.” - Eileen Kopsaftis
