No one should ever consider aging a pathology. Aging is a normal part of the life cycle, and as such is a part of normal anatomy and physiology. However, aging can also bring an increase in certain pathological conditions as well as an increase in certain accident-related pathologies such as occurs with falls. It is important to have an understanding on what is normal and what is not, as well as to appreciate the fact that many elders live long, healthful lives with very few pathologies.
