"Bones and muscles get weaker and smaller with aging"


The Law & Order Admin
Jan 4, 2012
Bones and muscles get weaker and smaller with aging. Diminished bone substance, osteopenia, is paralleled, at roughly the same rate, by the progressive loss of muscle mass, sarcopenia (myopenia). The structure of aging tissue changes, with collagen tending to fill the spaces left by disappearing cells. It's also common for fat cells to increase, as muscle cells disappear.
