If You Want To Avoid Needing Disability, Get Moving!

Posted by John Kuhnlein | May 13, 2021 | 0 Comments

Getting older does mean slowly breaking down in ways large and small. Common among these failings are such things as memory and concentration.  For some, cognitive problems become so severe that they can no longer work and need to apply for Social Security disability. But, this is always a last resort. Staying mentally sharp and working until retirement age should always be the goal. But, how to achieve that?

Guess What Works? Yes, It's Exercise

No real surprise here: the answer involves staying active and exercising. A story in the New York Times highlighted some recent research.  Doctors at Rutgers

OK, Maybe Not This Much

University set out to compare the brains of older African-Americans who exercised from those who did not. The results are intriguing. Essentially, the brains of the exercising seniors started to resemble those of much younger people. In particular, the active senior's brains showed an enhanced ability to use different parts of the brain for such things as encoding and recalling memories. It was not just being better at remembering. Those who exercised also were better at learning, retaining, and applying new information.

Keep Moving

So, if you want to keep your mind sharp and youthful as you age, get moving.

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
