Author hopes to heal pain sufferers who are 50-plus

A leading Denver physical therapist wants to make a difference in peoples’ lives.

Brooke Olsen, a resident of Washington Park, with contributor Annie Brodsky, recently released her first book called “Aging Happily Without Pain.”

Both Olsen and Brodsky have doctorates in physical therapy. The two opened their clinic, The Physio Revolution at 1224 S. Acoma St. in Denver’s Overland neighborhood, in 2017.

“With nearly two decades of accumulated experience, we both have seen the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to medical care,” Olsen said. “We saw so many people were struggling more and not getting real solutions to put an end to their pain or regain confidence back in their bodies. We want people to know what is possible and how amazing the body is at healing itself when given the right environment.”

The book is about 215 pages and can serve as “an instruction manual for all pain sufferers on what to do to transform your life from one of inactivity to one full of hope, family outings, walks and hikes in the park and returning to your old self,” Olsen said.

Q&A with Brooke Olsen, author of
“Aging Happily Without Pain”

 

What inspired you to write “Aging Happily Without Pain?”

When lockdown happened, we quickly worked out that more people would be struggling in pain and needing more help — just simply because of routine changes and closures including gyms, pools and classes. We knew the book would continue to impact so many who are still struggling today and help them find ways to get back to a life that’s more normal, active and worthwhile.

What is your target audience for the book and why?

“Aging Happily Without Pain” is for those who are 50+ who are tired of struggling in pain and have tried nearly everything unsuccessfully in the past to help themselves. It’s perfect for the person who deeply desires to get out of pain, naturally and without harmful methods. And it’s for the person who needs a new customized approach — something radically different — that gives them more hope in their situation.

In what ways do you feel readers will benefit from the book?

Simply put: hope for their future as they age. Aging doesn’t have to be a grim, painful experience where you slow down. It can be joyful, exciting and full of activity and adventures. And it doesn’t have to require pills, injections or surgery to do this.

Readers will learn secrets to fix pain and avoid slowing down after 50, without harmful or unnatural methods. There’s a little bit of everything in this book — from back pain, knee pain, headaches, neck and shoulder pain to more of the holistic, natural approaches we use to help people every single day. It’s about helping people age 50+ make better decisions about their health and empowering them to stay active and avoid slowing down, even if it’s been months or years of pain.
