Muscular atrophy is the loss of muscular tissue due to disuse, injury, or disease. Individuals are most likely to develop muscular atrophy from aging, malnutrition, lack of physical activity, stroke, or injury, or from diseases such as multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis, polio, or muscular dystrophy. Muscle atrophy develops over time, but the more severe type, called neurogenic atrophy, occurs more suddenly because it is caused by damage to the nerve connection to a muscle. Many cases of muscular atrophy can be reversed through treatment. Treatments include physical therapy, ultrasound therapy, and surgery.
