6 Week Skeletal Strength and Stability: Management of Osteoporosis 1x musculoskeletal and orthopaedic massage treatment per week for 4 weeks 2x tailored personal training session per week for 6 weeks Osteoporosis is a condition that weakens bones, making them fragile and more likely to break. It develops slowly over several years. Osteoporosis affects over 3 million people in the UK. More than 500,000 people receive hospital treatment for fragility fractures (fractures that occur from standing height or less) every year as a result of osteoporosis. Losing bone is a normal part of the ageing process, but some people lose bone density much faster than normal. This can lead to osteoporosis and an increased risk of fractures. Women start to lose bone density rapidly while experiencing menopause and are more at risk of osteoporosis than men, particularly if menopause begins early. (www.nhs.co.uk) Using a specifically tailored exercise plan, we aim to get you stronger by adopting a weight bearing training programme to increase strength of muscles, joints and bones. Our bones remodel under the stress we put them under (Wolfe’s Law), by introducing the body to weights, we aim to keep bones strong and allow them to remodel in a way that preserves and improve bone density. The tailored clinic treatment will work on general aches and pains that may be associated with age, such as stooping posture, shoulder, hip, knee and various other musculoskeletal pains.
