Key Points

Exercise is important for a lifetime and is an effective treatment for osteoporosis. Exercise and fitness become far more important as we age.  Smart, prescribed exercise plans are one of the most effective treatments to avoid life-changing injuries and illnesses.

Bone strength can always be improved. It is never too late to begin improving bone strength and reducing your risk of bone fractures. A physical therapist can help you by designing an individualized exercise plan for your specific needs.

Start early. Since there are little outward signs our bones are thinning, it is not knowing that puts us at greatest risk. An early start can slow the natural process of bone loss before it becomes a risk factor.

Be an advocate to others. By sharing the knowledge you’ve gained, you can help countless others reduce their own risk factors related to osteoporosis.
