Use it or lose it.: Although there can be diseases that cause pains, I have found that most aches and pains my patients get as they age are due to the fact that they are not doing any exercise to maintain their muscles. Both men and women should do some daily aerobic exercise and some light weight training every other day. You'll note that if you go to a physical therapist about this they will show you exercises!
