Bone-Strengthening Exercises for Osteoporosis

Bone Health in Aging Adults

We only have one skeleton in life, and as we get older, our bones can begin to change. Osteoporosis, or the loss of bone density, is a real concern for older adults. This can lead to an increased risk of fractures and breaks, prevent us from living healthy, active lives, and even lead to premature death. 

OsteoStrong is a bone density strength training program that uses low-impact machines and exercises focused on bodyweight resistance and balance. These bone-building exercises for osteoporosis aim to increase bone density while improving strength, balance, and coordination. OsteoStrong is a safe and effective method for improving bone health in older adults without the need for pharmaceuticals, high-impact activity, and other traditional types of osteoporosis therapy.

This can help you avoid joint injuries, and keep you moving freely as you age.

Low-Impact Activities for People With Diabetes

Better Bone Health With Diabetes

Diabetes isn't typically considered to be a condition that affects the bones. However, recent research has shown that diabetes can have a serious impact on bone health, increasing the risk of weak and brittle bones. This is especially true for older adults, who are already at a greater risk of developing osteoporosis and other bone conditions.

There are multiple, well-proven and safe approaches to treating type II diabetes and metabolic dysfunction. Research has shown  OsteoStrong to have a powerful effect on lowering HbA1c levels (blood glucose marker).

At what age do I become at a higher risk for osteoporosis?

After the age of about 30 years old, the average person naturally begins to lose bone density when bones lose the ability to rebuild at the same rate it breaks down. Women, in particular, face a higher risk of losing bone density as they age and enter menopause when hormone changes accelerate the loss of bone density.
