PowerPoint Presentation:

Muscle atrophy is the wasting or loss of muscle. This is caused by the lack of use of the muscles which can cause loss of movement.

There are two types of muscle atrophy: Disuse atrophy: Caused from lack of physical activity. People with jobs that don’t require much movement can cause atrophy. When muscles aren’t being used enough, they can cause loss of movement. Neurogenic atrophy: Caused when there is an injury or disease to a nerve that attaches to the muscle.
