Researchers at Manchester Metropolitan University, Waterloo University, Ontario and University of Manchester examined 168 men and found that the nerves controlling their feet dropped the participants to 30% by the age of 50, BBC reports.
The lack of this nerve ruins the muscles. However, in older, fitter athletes, in this situation, reconnecting nerves was a better possibility to “save”.
As the age of the people, the muscles of the leg are small and weak, with daily activities facing difficulties such as walking and stairs, or getting out of the chairs, it eventually happens to everyone, but why There is no adequate explanation why Jamie McPhee of Manchester Metropolitan University said that young adults usually have lumbar spinal cord There are 60-70,000 veins, control the movement of the legs. It turned into a very old age, McPhee said,
There was a dramatic loss of nerves controlling the muscles – a 30-60% loss – which means they waste away.
They said, “The muscles need to get proper signals to contract them with the nervous system, so we can roam around.”
Researchers examined muscle tissues with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and through the muscles of participants recorded electromagnetic activity, to estimate the number and size of their nerves.
At the top, it seems that healthy muscles are able to protect themselves by sending new nerve branches to save the muscles in decline, stopping them from being lost.
This was more likely to happen to seniors with large, healthy muscles, McPhee said. While there is still much to learn about muscle connec- tions and nerve damage, this is a beginning to learn more about muscle loss so scientists come up with a possible solution in the future.
The study was published in the Journal of Physiology.
