A new report highlights why more trainers need to specialize in working with older adults. The study, presented at an international conference*, showed that health care costs are 50% higher for people with a musculoskeletal condition such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and low back pain compared to any other single occurring condition. There are more than 150 conditions that affect the muscles, bones and joints and their prevalence increases with age making them the main cause of disability among the elderly.
With the rapid rise in the aging population globally we need more trainers who specialize in working with mature adults, especially those with musculoskeletal conditions, to help improve their function and decrease their disability risk.
