Stop the Muscle Dump!

29 March 2019

Johnny and the ORS Team discuss Anabolic Resistance or what happens during periods of disuse or decreased stress. Your patients are losing muscle fast and we need to look at effective strategies (such as blood flow restriction therapy) to slow down the muscle dump. Johnny also brings in Dr. Kevin Tipton, PhD, to discuss the nutritional considerations for muscle with healthy and pathological populations. Check out the full Podcast here to learn more about using nutrition to slow muscle loss during recovery.
