How our joints and bones and muscles all work together tends to be overlooked when accessing an injury or overall health, but these components create a healthy body. For examples, age-related muscle loss can contribute to joint pain and join pain can lead to a lack of exercise, which then leads to changes in bone density and more muscle loss.
Healthy aging depends on a variety of factors, one of them being correlated with musculoskeletal health (muscular and skeletal systems). Research is showing that osteosarcopenia (the presence of osteoporosis and sarcopenia) is emerging as a serious global health burden for aging populations.
A new study conducted found that mitochondria bioenergetics dysfunction is key in the development of sarcopenia and that the condition could be managed by improving mitochondria function.
For all stages of life, maintaining muscle mass and muscle function is vital for your quality of life. Research is showing that building muscle can do more than just make you stronger, it can improve the way your body processes food to help prevent diabetes, lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and other chronic diseases, and even improve mental health.
