It is predicted that Malaysians who are 60 years and above would be expected to double from the current estimate of 10.3% of the population in the year 2040. That will be 6.3 million which is about 2 out of every 10 Malaysians. The rapid increase in the number of our ageing population isn’t the only thing that we should be worried about but did you know that the life expectancy of our silver population is also expected to increase as well?
Men whose age reached 65 years in 2019 are expected to live a further 14.8 years to nearly 80, and women aged 65 last year are expected to live a further 17.8 years to about 82 years.
For those who are unaware of their musculoskeletal health, it basically starts with building and maintaining bones, muscles and joints that will continue to be strong for many years ahead. It helps provide form, support, stability, and movement to the body and is made up of the bones of the skeleton, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints, and other connective tissue that supports and binds tissues and organs together.
“Our bones may start to deteriorate from as early as the 30s, losing up to 20% of bone density and our joint cartilages (the ‘cushions’ between joints) may have significant degeneration in our 40s. Our muscle functions may become weaker by losing up to 29% of its strength as we age,” Mr Calvin Shun, Founder of Osso Bone Care Chiropractic says.
