How exercise helps with osteoporosis

The effect of exercise in decreasing falls risk is twofold:

  1. Good strength & balance means that we can stabilize on uneven ground or in the dark, to prevent falling

  2. Exercise over time can improve bone density, so even if a fall happened there is less chance of a fracture

The evidence shows that weight bearing & resistance exercises are most effective for bone density. Our physio exercise classes are tailored to your starting level, and the equipment allows for a gradual progression.

Your physio can help you work towards functional goals (whether that be walking for longer at the shops, playing with grandchildren more easily or getting back to exercise).

If you need a physio Adelaide based call 7122 5250 to speak with one of us.
