6 THINGS TO CONSIDER THAT MAY KEEP ACHES AND PAINS AT BAY
By Kate Silver / July 10, 2017
Aches and pains are often considered a part of aging—but they may not have to be, says David Reavy, physical therapist and owner of React Physical Therapy in Chicago.Part of the problem, says Reavy, is as we age, we move less, and that may take a toll on us physically.
Reavy says that when you are less mobile, your muscles may tighten. Just a single tightened muscle can set off a domino effect that has the potential to impact joints, bones and the way you move. “We get tight in certain muscles and that actually shuts down other muscles,” says Reavy. In other words, your body is one big interconnected machine, and if one area is even a little bit off, it has the potential to throw everything out of whack. That may lead to aches, pains and injuries down the line.
Reavy shared the following tips—which he also shares with his patients—to help:

As I prepped myself for our AARP excursion to Coconut Island this morning, I read in Wikipedia about my Uncle Donald Lo and how his architecture and engineering firm played a big part in reconstructing Coconut Island.
Here is an excerpt:
In 1946 a group of five Los Angeles businessmen, including Edwin W. Pauley, bought the island from the estate of Chris Holmes II with the idea of converting it to the exclusive Coconut Island Club International, 1946-7, and hired architects Paul Williams, A. Quincy Jones, and C.W. Lemmon of Belt Lemmon and Lo, Architects of Honolulu to design a community of cottages, tennis courts, a yacht club and other recreational facilities including remodeling the Holmes mansion and barracks. The Pauley group wanted to develop the island into a private, membership only resort. In 1949 this idea was dropped and a scaled-back Coconut Island Hotel with accommodation for 32 guests opened in February 1950.
