Boomers: Your Ability to Walk Might be Slipping Away

The ability to walk is too often taken for granted.

But think about how reduced walking ability would affect your life. Think about the loss of mobility, independence and ability to interact with others. It would seriously degrade your quality of life.

Reality! Walking ability declines with age. Not just old age. For most people, the neuromuscular and skeletal decline starts in the late 20’s. While hardly noticed, it progressively slows and declines until the 50’s or 60’s. At this point declines can accelerate and walking can become effortful.
