You’re never too old or too young to improve the health of your bones. Dr. Elizabeth O’Neill from Springfield College tells how being physically active can maintain bone health and prevent Osteoporosis.
Dr. Neill tells us that low impact workouts can be a perfect solution to maintain bone density and be gentle enough to not cause further harm. These and other exercises can help fend off and be a great rehab tool for Osteoporosis.
Want to keep your bones strong and healthy? Make sure you get plenty of exercise to help ward off problems such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and pain affecting the joints and lower back.
The Cleveland Clinic offers these treatments for osteoporosis that boost your bone health:
- Get low-impact exercise via activities such as swimming, walking and biking.
- Perform gentle stretching and strengthening exercises.
- Perform weight-bearing exercises such as dancing, climbing stairs, hiking and tennis.
- Play sports such as golf that are relatively easy on the bones and joints.
