The aging population is growing. Physical activity is important to prevent and manage health concerns in older adults and the field of gerokinesiology is expanding. Gerokinesiology is a specialized area of study within the larger discipline of kinesiology that focuses on understanding how physical activity influences all aspects of health and well-being in the older adult population and the aging process in general.
