Active Aging in the Valley EVENT

Improving Quality of Life by Improving Muscle Mass & Function

Presentation on this topic will be delivered by Dr. Jeffrey Moss twice:

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.
