Margaret Martin is a physical therapist in Ontario. She has a website MelioGuide.com. She has a link to Yoga for Better Bones. She is a certified yoga teacher and certified strength and conditioning specialist. I use her Exercise for Better Bones (book and exercise plan). She has a wealth of information showing how you can adapt some movements and other moves that those with osteoporosis should avoid.
Best wishes on your journey!

Hi. Personally I'm much better since starting yoga over a year ago. I've wedge fractures and scoliosis due to them and my back pain is much reduced. My pelvis and hips are much more free too. Our teacher stopped for a ehile over the holidays and the pain came right back within a few weeks.

I had a fractured lower lumbar from a fall and osteo in my hip requires hip replacement. My gp suggested yoga 8 months after spine fracture. I didnt pursue. The forms are subjective if it is about disability osteo very well can affect daily life and it is considered a disability. On most forms a doctor has to complete that is the most important information. Not sure if these are the forms u refer to.
