Exercise Finally Getting Credit

Exercise as a part of osteoporosis management is not often given the credit it is due. For many years, the recommended exercise was walking. While walking plays a useful role in cardiorespritory and circulatory functions, it is not an effective exercise in the treatment of osteoporosis.

Weight Bearing Exercises Not Realistic for Most

Weight bearing exercises have shown to enhance vertebral bone mineral density, but are not realistic for the majority of patients with osteoporosis. In those cases, a well-documented realistic exercise is the effective site-specific resistive exercise. This has been documented in a variety of animal studies as well as controlled human studies. Subjects with osteoporosis show a large response in bone mineralization from this exercise.

Resistive Exercise Highly Effective

Resistive exercise can be accomplished by many methods, from weight lifting to exercise machines to elastic stretch bands, but the most up to date, effective way would be to consider using the doctor-designed, clinically tested OsteoBall.
