Patient Q&A Section

What are the signs of healthy aging?

"Overall, there is a pattern of declining health status with aging that can best be approached through an integrated health assessment. A holistic approach is important in identifying medical and non-medical causes of declining health and evaluating the effectiveness of lifestyle interventions." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are common treatments for healthy aging?

"Overall, common interventions for healthy aging are mainly aimed at symptom management; for example, for insomnia, cognitive behavioral therapy and sleep hygiene training are the most commonly prescribed treatment. Preventive treatments, such as cardiovascular screenings, can sometimes reduce health care expenditures." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What is healthy aging?

"Healthy aging is a process involving many body systems that can be quantified by a set of validated measures. These body systems are strongly correlated with the physical and cognitive functions that make up an older person's quality of life. Clinicians can use this knowledge to better target health care interventions and interventions for improving health as a group in later life." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What causes healthy aging?

"The process that underlies aging involves (1) reduced maintenance of normal cellular function, and (2) increased cellular damage resulting from increased oxidative burden, both of which are accelerated by aging-prone lifestyle risks. Aging should, therefore, be considered an 'inflammaging' condition that can be prevented by improved lifestyle choices. Anti-aging interventions should focus on health promotion and disease prevention." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How many people get healthy aging a year in the United States?

"Overall, around 11 million Americans are affected by healthy aging each year. Although this is not the highest number, it is the largest number of subjects affected by healthy aging. At younger ages there is more health care than there are older people because both are at higher risk." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Can healthy aging be cured?

"Healthy aging can be cured by focusing on the prevention of chronic disease and maintaining a normal weight in older Americans. More research is needed to explore the influence of health factors of older age after age 70." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Have there been any new discoveries for treating healthy aging?

"Results from a recent paper of the current review provide some examples of the recent progress in the management of healthy aging and identify some avenues for further development of new agents for modifying various aspects of healthy aging." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are the latest developments in 3 month community-based mobility and health intervention for therapeutic use?

"The design of the study was in line with a recent study using a real program of physiotherapy, exercise and home care, as part of the physiotherapy service to the elderly in the community. The program of home care and mobility was evaluated to have an effect on the elderly health status even with the use of only the physiotherapy intervention. In a recent study, findings obtained were consistent with earlier studies, confirming the potential utility of such mobility assessments." - Anonymous Online Contributor

How does 3 month community-based mobility and health intervention work?

"Findings from a recent study suggest that it may be possible to implement a program of physical activity and physical functioning for older adults, using minimal resources. They add to the growing body of evidence that suggests that physical activity programs can be effective in reducing health risks among older Americans." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What is the primary cause of healthy aging?

"Healthy aging has been described as a continuum of subjective, measurable, physiologic variables. The present study illustrates the significance of health care professionals and researchers to this continuum." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Have there been other clinical trials involving 3 month community-based mobility and health intervention?

"To date, there are no randomized controlled trials investigating the effectiveness of active community-based programmes in the elderly, such as these 3-month mobility and health interventions. Further, there is no known evidence suggesting that this level of intervention would result in clinically significant improvements over usual care alone." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are the common side effects of 3 month community-based mobility and health intervention?

"Interventions that can be delivered by Community Physical Therapists are effective in promoting physical activity, reducing disability and alleviating pain among adults with chronic conditions." - Anonymous Online Contributor
