Got Porous Bone? It May Be Time To Pour On The Resistance!

I have spent the last couple of years researching Osteoporosis and ways in which bone density can be retained or remodeled.  Following is an extremely brief summary.

Osteoporosis means (literally) “porous bone.”  It is a disorder in which the density and quality of the bones are reduced, making them fragile.  Osteoporosis increases the risk of fracture and often occurs with NO SYMPTOMS and progressively.  In fact, the first symptom may not occur until the first fracture.  The most common occurrences are at the hip, spine and wrist.

If you have been diagnosed with Osteopenia or Osteoporosis, we recommend speaking with your physician about your course of treatment.  In addition, we urge our clients to research the benefits of resistance training to aid in the possible retention and/or remodeling of bone.  Having said this, it’s important to note that there is a definite methodology associated with lifting weights to achieve this end, so that the results can be accomplished without injury.
