Active Aging in the Valley EVENT
Improving Quality of Life by Improving Muscle Mass & Function
1: Sat. Nov. 18th 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm
2: Sat. Nov. 18th 2:45 pm - 3:15 pm
As we age, many of us experience fatigue, pain, difficulty sleeping, mood issues, and difficulty losing weight, among others. These quality of life issues decrease our motivation to stay active - it is much easier to stay active when we feel up to it!
As these problems become more chronic, many find that the usual diets, lifestyle modifications, prescriptions and supplemental protocols have not demonstrated the level of efficacy that was expected.
What can be done? Increasingly, research suggests that no matter the chief complaint, loss of muscle mass and function may be the roadblock that keeps 'the usual' from working.
In this presentation, you will learn how loss of
muscle mass and function contribute to some of the most common and difficult to
resolve chief complaints. You will also
learn simple, cost-effective, and practical diagnostic modalities that will
help to easily identify loss of muscle mass and function. Finally, you will learn about practical and
cost-effective lifestyle modifications and supplemental recommendations that
can help improve quality of life.
