After reading some of the moderators most recent posts I was struck by the vast amount of meds, procedures, dr visits and imaging that we all have to go through. Add to this injections and surgeries much can be done to help us live our lives in as little pain as possible.
Now think what it would have been like to live a few hundred years ago. No pain meds. No injections, no surgeries, not even a single aspirin. I cant even imagine how hard life must have been back then. A simple thing like arthritis would be so painful. Torn knees or shoulders, too bad for you!!! Spine surgery, out of the question. Life back then would be beyond difficult.
