Curious to know what were before and after numbers? And where did you read about the quantity of supplements to take; depending on your initial levels, I would think.

Anyone On Here Tried The Silver Sneakers Exercise Program? Is It Sufficient For Osteoporosis Exercise?

Anyone On Here Tried The Silver Sneakers Exercise Program? Is It Sufficient For Osteoporosis Exercise?

In addition to osteoporosis, I have severe osteoarthritis in hips, knees, and feet. This is seriously impairing my ability to do many of the recommended exercises. I know I need to exercise, just seeking a program that I can do and not cause significantly more pain but still benefit from. This is all quite a balancing act!

I attend a community center where I attend 4 hours of silver sneakers exercise weekly. Excellent. Aerobics, line dancing, kick boxing. In summer, We do aquatic aerobics in outdoor pool. Love it!

Diagnosed With Osteoporosis

Diagnosed With Osteoporosis

I was diagnosed today. I haven’t stopped crying. I have been a very healthy person. I’m scared after reading about the side effects of all those medications. I wonder if there are people who have decided not to take any medication and treat it just with a good diet and exercise. Is that a good idea?
Thanks,

When I told my PCP… read more

Do Compression Fractures Of The Vertebrae Really Heal?

Do Compression Fractures Of The Vertebrae Really Heal?

I have been diagnosed with 2 compression fractures one of T7 and L4 over a year ago, T7 still causes me pain especially when I'm on my feet for extended periods of time and when I perform house cleaning jobs such as vacuuming and mopping floors. I work in retail so I have no alternative but to be on my feet for 7 to 8 hours a day. Everything I've read said they should heal within 6 to 8 weeks but I just dont that is my case. Any feed back is welcome!

What Form Of Exercise Can I Take

What Form Of Exercise Can I Take

I'm afraid of doing anything except walking and swimming for fear of hurting myself, but I get bored with these. My osteoporosis is mild in my spine and moderate in my hips. I've had two crush fractures. My back can be extremely painful. I've tried Pilates and yoga, but some of the excersises really hurt my upper back, so I end up not doing anything! I used to love cycling, but I've lost all my confidence and can't balance anymore as I'm so scared of falling off.

A MyOsteoTeam Member said:

That's me. I recently had physical therapy to strengthen my leg muscles, but I still have a bad knee on the right and a bad ankle on the left, so I can't do any sports type stuff. Of course. I was… read more
