Osteoporosis Group Therapy Program

At any age, exercise is essential for maintaining healthy bones. If you exercised regularly as a child and young adult, you probably helped maximize your bone production, most of which occurs by age 35. If you continued to exercise into middle age and beyond, you probably helped reduce your risk of developing the bone-thinning disease osteoporosis.

 

But it's never too late to start a bone-healthy exercise program, even if you already have osteoporosis or are at high risk of developing osteoporosis.

 

Although people with osteoporosis may believe that exercise increases the risk of injury from broken bones, the truth is quite the opposite.

A regular, properly designed exercise program may actually help prevent the falls and fall-related fractures that so often result in disability and premature death.
That's because exercise strengthens bones and muscles, and improves balance, coordination, and flexibility, which is especially important for older adults and people who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis.There is no single exercise regimen that's best for everyone with osteoporosis.

Our regimen is specifically tailored to the individual patient based on a medical evaluation of:

 

 

    •    fracture risk
    •    muscle strength
    •    range of motion
    •    level of physical activity
    •    fitness
    •    gait
    •    balance

 

At our center we offer :

  • 6  sessions
  • 12 sessions

Note: The first evaluation session is not included
