Muscle Atrophy
May 31, 2002

My husband has suffered muscle atrophy in his scapula area of his shoulder. He is currently undergoing extensive therapy working with resistance and small weights. How long will it take to regain his muscle?

Response from Ms. Fields-Gardner

Excellent question, but one that relies on the reason why he lost this muscle in this particular area in the first place. Your physical therapist will have better answers.

improve immnune system and gain weight
Wasting only for people on meds?
