Type: DVD

Item: C910612

Description

Sarcopenia is the age related loss of muscle mass and physical functioning often associated with normal aging. Depending on the population studied, sarcopenia is estimated to occur in 5-45% of older adults. As such, the economic burden in the United States is estimated to be 18 billion dollars per year. 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 video will give you an understanding of this condition and practical solutions to the prevention and treatment of this disorder.
