Osteoporosis is a disease of low bone mass that increases the risk of fracture. Currently, 10 million Americans suffer from osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a major public health threat for 28 million Americans, 80 percent of whom are women. One out of every two women, and one in eight men over the age of 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime.
Bone Fit Program
Our Programs incorporate all of the major areas important to building stronger bones and reducing fracture risk. On a practical level, this means training the body to better and more efficiently respond to changes, such as regaining or maintaining balance on uneven ground to reduce falls. Increased adaptability and coordination can help decrease the chance of injury from accidents or improper overuse in a particular body movement.
Our program exercise areas include:
- Postural Exercises
- Strength Exercises
- Balance Exercises
- Flexibility Exercises
- Weight Bearing and Cardiovascular Exercises
- Safe Exercise Tips
- Fall Prevention
