Research Says Regular Exercise May Slow Aging Process

 EXERCISE FOR THE ELDERLY
A new research by a Canadian sports medicine physician, Mark Tarnopolsky, MD, PhD, suggests that people can slow the speed at which they age by exercising regularly. Dr. Tarnopolsky presented his research titled, “Exercise as a Countermeasure for Aging: From Mice to Humans” on April 8, 2014, at the 23rd Annual Meeting of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM). Dr. Tarnopolsky discussed how regular exercise not only improves the quality of life but can also extend a person’s lifespan by up to five years.
Additionally, his research suggests that older adults receive the most benefits when combining endurance exercise with resistance exercise.
The meeting, called “Keep the Good Times Rolling: Staying Healthfully Fit,” featured lectures and research, addressing the most challenging topics in sports medicine including overuse injuries and burnout in youth sports, post-concussion syndrome, international perspectives on challenging musculoskeletal injuries, obesity and more. Speakers included internationally renowned sports medicine physicians and researchers who addressed what the sports medicine physician needs in order to keep patients healthy and active throughout their lifetimes.
Held at the Hyatt Regency, New Orleans, the meeting ran from April 5 to April 9.
