I know one 65yr old woman who had lots of pain in her hips and legs but her muscles are so atrophied from a lifetime without exercise. What is causing her pain and what can i do for her? Another woman in her sixties is walking 45mins a day since her husband died of heart complications. She want to avoid the same fate but she gets so tired after her walks. What is going on? Shouldn’t walking make people feel invigorated and happy?
If you are training these individuals I would get medical clearance (hopefully you already have) to be sure there isn’t an underlying issue causing the fatigue.
Generally if a person begins exercising in their 60’s they can expect to feel a certain amount of discomfort
Stay within your scope of practice and work with their doctors and Physical Therapists when needed.
