move podcast

We were born to move–there is no doubt.  And those of us who do are ultimately healthier and live better quality lives.  It’s simple and can be the difference between happiness and comfort or grumpiness and discomfort. Listen to how we approach how we want you to move.

    Great presentation! Thank you. Sarcopenia is the term for muscle loss due to aging. Read below. Hope this helps. Also, great ending! Carol would be happy to hear you were referring to her.

    From the time you are born to around the time you turn 30, your muscles grow larger and stronger. But at some point in your 30s, you begin to lose muscle mass and function, a condition known as age-related sarcopenia or sarcopenia with aging. People who are physically inactive can lose as much as 3% to 5% of their muscle mass per decade after age 30. Even if you are active, you will still experience some muscle loss.

    Although there is no generally accepted test or specific level of muscle mass for sarcopenia diagnosis, any loss of muscle mass is of consequence, because loss of muscle means loss of strength and mobility. Sarcopenia typically accelerates around age 75 — although it may happen in people age 65 or 80 — and is a factor in the occurrence of frailty and the likelihood of falls and fractures in older adults.

    Symptoms and Causes of Sarcopenia
    Symptoms of muscle loss include musculoskeletal weakness and loss of stamina, which can interfere with physical activity. Reduced physical activity, in turn, further reduces muscle mass.
