Although universal definitions of this disorder are evolving, the biochemical basis of sarcopenia is thought to be changes in motor neuron function, inadequate protein and hormonal alteration. This session is designed to give the practitioner an understanding of this condition and practical solutions to the prevention and treatment of this disorder.
