Muscles start to deteriorate without use, so without the person consciously moving a body part or flexing, can muscle tissue degeneration be stopped or at least decelerated by administering something, some passive technique, or machine assistance?

1 Answer 1


Of course you could combat muscular degeneration.

What you could do is

  • Massage
  • (Higher protein intake by infusion)
  • (Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS)
  • (Steroids)

But it's an intervention that's not essential for life and probably dangerous so this isn't practical.
