Exercise should be done to help with Osteoporosis

The discovery that you suffer from osteoporosis is obviously a sad and shocking one but it does not mean, that you stop moving at once! Sure your bones become weak and brittle and your chances of suffering a fracture go up suddenly, but did you know that there are plenty of exercises that help when one has osteoporosis?

“Exercise, when I have osteoporosis? Are you crazy!” is the usual reaction that follows whenever one is informed about possible exercises that help. Osteoporosis is a condition that results in the bones gradually becoming weaker, losing their density and becoming brittle. In such a condition weight bearing exercises such as walking, jogging, stair climbing etc, help build up bone density. One could also try their hand at resistance training, starting with light weights and gradually moving onto to heavier weights to build up bone density.

While one can always perform these exercises to help build bone density and reduce the chances of a fracture occurring, one also has to keep certain risk factors in mind which if controlled can lead to reduction in the chances of development of Osteoporosis.
