Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bones become fragile and brittle, leading to a higher risk of fractures (breaks or cracks) than in normal bone.

Osteoporosis occurs when bones lose minerals, such as calcium, more quickly than the body can replace them, leading to a loss of bone thickness (bone mass or density).

In order to sustain bone mineral density, Exercise For Life uses a specific resistance training program to promote health trunk posture and prevent falls.

This program is conducted under the strict supervision of our Exercise Physiologists to ensure that participants are improving their muscle mass and delivering correct load to affected areas.

Clients suffering from Osteoporosis maybe eligible for an enhanced primary care plan referral from their GP
