Osteoporosis is a systemic skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass and micro-architectural deterioration of bone tissue, with a consequent increase in bone fragility and susceptibility to fracture risk.
Exercise is key in helping people with osteoporosis or osteopenia (low bone density) build better bones and decrease their fracture risk. There are many types of exercise that can help people with osteoporosis and osteopenia, and to select the right ones for you can be confusing and frustrating.

Did you know?
Some common everyday exercises actually put a person with low bone density or osteoporosis at risk of fracture?
The first step is to know the principles of what is "right” and what is "risky” to make an informed decision on what exercises you should be doing, what you should not be doing and/or what you should be modifying.
