Exercise can be difficult with osteoporosis, but exercise strengthens bones and can reduce the risk of fractures. Finding safe exercises when you have a bone loss is best done alongside others who understand the obstacles and rewards.
On MyOsteoTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with osteoporosis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Exercise is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.
Here are some conversations about exercise:
• I developed compression fractures in 3 vertebrae and a near complete spinal cord compression. Underwent surgery and I am doing physical therapy, exercise, walking as much as I can and the exercise bike. Slow progress.
Can you relate?
