    It seems atrophy can be part of mygalia and myositis. It is about the muscles.

    Please note that for people with late Alzheimer's who cannot walk and have to be confined in a wheelchair tend to develop atrophy in the legs/muscles and thus become further disabled. The rigidity is also shown in the body movements such as head turning, hands movements and etc.

    This does not happen for earlier stage of dementia unless there is stroke and etc.
