Exercises for Osteopenia and Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a bone-weakening condition that can lead to broken bones, often resulting from a fall.
Physiotherapy can help to strengthen bones, as well as muscles. It can prevent bone thinning, reduce falls and help manage pain.
Bone is a living tissue that can be improved through some types of exercise. A physiotherapist can work with patients with osteoporosis to find activities that suit their needs and that will strengthen their bones.
Osteoporosis is more common in older people and often the reason why they fall. Falling is a common problem for people aged 65 and over. If you are at risk of falling, a physio can help you improve your balance.
