Suspect you have got older and cannot fine tune the working of your muscles like you used to. It is time to change to activities that enable you to study how your muscles work.

Suggest Yoga, t'ai chi and Alexander Technique. See if these disciplines help you to develop better control of your muscles. If you have better control of your muscles then you hopefully will suffer less pain and discomfort.

Hope this helps.
