What Is Sarcopenia?
Sarcopenia is a condition that affects muscle mass and strength as people get older. It can lead to decreased mobility and independence, as well as other health problems.
The main cause of sarcopenia is age-related muscle loss, which occurs due to a number of factors including inactivity, inflammation, and hormone changes.
How Can Physical Therapy Help?
Physical therapy is a proven way to manage sarcopenia and improve muscle mass and strength. Our physical therapists will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that targets the causes of your sarcopenia.
Treatments may include exercises, stretches, and massage therapy. We can also provide advice on lifestyle changes to help you stay healthy and active.
There are a number of risk factors that can increase your chances of developing sarcopenia. These include:
- Old age.
- Poor Nutrition.
- Chronic Disease.
- Low level of education.
There are a few things you can do to help prevent sarcopenia.
- Stay active and engage in regular physical activity.
- Eat a healthy, balanced diet with plenty of protein and vitamin D.
- Maintain a healthy weight.
- Quit smoking.

How Is Sarcopenia Diagnosed?
Sarcopenia is diagnosed with the use of a sarcopenia index, which measures muscle mass and strength. Your doctor may also order other tests to determine the cause of your sarcopenia.
How Is Sarcopenia Treated?
The best treatment for sarcopenia is resistance training. Your physical therapist can design an exercise that works for you to rebuild muscle mass, improve balance and reduce frailty.
Exercise not only increases muscle mass, but also reduces the risk of falls, and in turn reduces the risk of fractures and long hospital stays. It also prolongs life expectancy and independence.
