Exercise and Osteoporosis

Posted on May 25, 2018

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.

I certainly can't exercise like I used to, but I do some yoga and a lot of stretching and some light weights.

I'm swimming and doing crazy river exercises.

I find myself wishing I could do the activities that used to enjoy.I'm afraid of injuries, my bones are so brittle right now. I'm just glad I am able to walk.

Can you relate?
