        I have a sedentary job as a programmer. 
        Until now: no sports, except for one week skiing, and on summer holiday a swim and some walking.

        That went always smootly.

        Except the latest years.

        Examples :
        1. Holiday Alpes, the first day a walk from about 5 miles, went good, but the net day i almost couldn’t walk anymore. Pain from foot to knees, and it lastes 4 days. Bye bye holiday.
        2. After a years not swimming, on a summer holiday finely swimming, fantastic, but the net day i almost couldn’t walk anymore.  Pain in the sciatic zone,
        lower back and groin, and it lastes 3 days. Bye bye holiday.
        3. I was afraid for skiing but dat went rather well.
        4. Then the professional issue, deskjob, both arms hurt a lot (from lower arm, ellbow up to the shoulder)
        5. Cycling gives me back pain.

        I have been visiting several medics, but they all work for their specialisation.
        For instance a surgeon want to operate immidiatly.  A physiotherapist warns not to go to a surgeon and promotes his thing. And so on …

        I fear for further restrictions in the future.
        Are there things I can do to prevent it, without more damage off course.
        Some people over 60 or 70 seem to be so fit, feels depressing for me.

        hoping for good news ….

          Well, if you go from sedentary to serious exercise, of course you’re going to hurt!! Once you heal, you need to make movement a daily priority. Don’t wait for your holiday, or you’re actually damaging yourself instead of helping yourself.

          I bet if you did some form of daily movement, a year from now you’d be singing a different story (after your next holiday).

          Yoga, stretching, calisthenics, and bodyweight exercises, for starters.
