Aging with Grace: Managing Osteoporosis

Location Murrysville Community Library
4130 Sardis Road
Murrysville, PA 15668 United States

Tune in virtually from your own home for Aging with Grace – Managing Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is the loss of bone density, which tends to occur as we age and our bones are breaking down faster than our body can rebuild them. bones, like all tissues in the body, will increase in density when they are loaded regularly and decrease in density when they are not loaded. Weight bearing exercise can be very successful in both prevention and reversal of reductions in bone mineral density, which can result in decreased risk of broken bones. This lecture will outline the best current evidence on what “weight bearing” exercise means, because there is more to it than just spending time on your feet. Registration is required to receive the BlueJeans link. BlueJeans is similar to Zoom and can be accessed from any web browser. Registration MUST include an email address to participate.
