Living with Osteoporosis: Regular Exercise

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

  • Use weights only as instructed.

  • Stop any exercise that causes pain.

You can protect against fracture and spinal changes by exercising and by doing other physical activities. Exercises that increase muscle strength and improve flexibility help prevent falls. A variety of exercises is best. Physical activity will slow further bone loss. It can also be fun.

Weight-bearing activities, such as dancing, walking, gardening, and even housework, help your whole body and help you maintain bone mass.

Non-weight-bearing exercises, such as swimming or water exercises, help prevent back strain and pain. They do this by building the trunk and leg muscles.
