Preventing Osteoporosis: Staying Active

Certain factors can speed up bone loss or decrease bone growth. For example, a lack of activity makes bones lose their strength. Exercise plays a big part in maintaining bone mass no matter what your age. The amount and type of activity you do also play a part in keeping your bones strong. Weight-bearing and resistance exercises, such as walking, aerobic dancing, and bicycling, are just a few of the activities that are good for your bones.

  • Check with your health care provider before starting any new exercise program.

  • Stop any exercise that causes pain.

Resistance exercises, such as weight training, help maintain bones by strengthening the muscles around them. Swimming is also a good choice.

Image
Weight-bearing exercises, such as walking briskly for 30 minutes or more a day, are a great way to maintain bone mass. Try aerobic dancing, too.

Image
Vary your activities so you exercise all parts of your body. Try tennis, bicycling, or hiking.
