Movin’ and Groovin’ without Chronic Joint Pain with Dr. Angela Cortal

Oh, my knees!  Oh, my hips!  Oh, I’m getting old! 

The first thing we say when we start hearing the clicking and clacking of our joints is – That’s it…I’m officially old!  Right?  Well, it doesn’t have to be this way and my guest today explains why! 

Dr. Angela Cortal specializes in helping women improve their joint and hormone health using functional medicine. We discuss how the aches and pains don’t have to be the end of the vibrant lives we lead.  She explains the 7 Steps for Younger Joints and how hormones are a big part of the process. Who knew there was a connection!  She sees her patients flourish from her methods as she helps them move and feel their best through any stage of life. 

Movin’ and Groovin’ as smoothly as possible is the goal as we #LiveAgeless.
