Physiotherapist says ‘Listen to your body’

Trent Hills – Campbellford physiotherapist Doreen Sharpe has a simple message for anyone seeking to improve their overall health: “Listen to your body.”

If your body is trying to send you a message by manifesting pain, listen; don’t ignore the message or try to mask the pain with medications, because you are being told there is something wrong, the body is out of balance, she says. “That’s the number one thing I tell people. Pain is your friend; pain is there to tell you when there is something wrong, and so when you get pain, stop what you are doing and correct it.”
