Medical Fitness and Wellness Group Johns Creek is proud to offer our Osteoporosis Prevention Program. Through the use of weight-bearing activities and weight training, we provide a well-balanced blend of bone-strengthening resistance exercises, cardiovascular, as well as fall prevention exercises to decrease the risks of falls that result in fractures. We will also analyze your current diet to see if we can make improvements that protect current bone and help build new bone through nutrition. We will work with your doctor to monitor your progress through bone density test check-ups. We will also custom design a workout that you can take home and apply immediately to your workout routine. Rebuilding bone density is a slow process. You will need to commit to a routine for a minimum of one year to see any significant bone density change.
Studies show that strength training over a period of time can help prevent bone loss — and may even help build new bone. By stressing your bones, strength training can increase bone density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Read about Wolf’s Law which further explains the importance of resistance training to help build stronger bones. Maintaining strong muscles through weight training helps to keep up your balance and coordination — a critical element in preventing falls, which can lead to osteoporosis-related fractures.
