Abstract

Osteoarthritis (OA) is not an inevitable consequence of human aging but age-associated sarcopenia is. Loss of strength in healthy men and women begins around the fourth decade initially proceeding at a rate of loss of around 1% per year before accelerating from the seventh decade onwards. This loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength can result in decreased mobility and an increased potential for disability.
