Treating Osteoporosis with Personalized Exercise

Our Center for Health and Wellness is an exercise facility that offers a unique exercise program designed specifically for individuals with special health concerns such as, but not limited to:

  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Obesity and weight management
  • Osteoporosis
  • Pulmonary disease

This center also works with patients transitioning from physical, occupational, and lymphedema therapy.

Our staff will design an exercise program specifically for an individual based on medical concerns, goals, restrictions and doctor recommendations. Members are assisted in achieving their fitness and wellness goals in a safe healthcare environment.

Each member receives three initial one-on-one appointments with an Exercise Physiologist to discuss their medical history and learn their individually prescribed workout program. Monthly re-evaluations are also available for members to address their progress at no additional cost.

In regards to treatments for osteoporosis, our physicians will work with patients to help decrease pain, prevent fractures, and minimize any further bone loss.

Many of the treatments for osteoporosis are similar to the methods used in preventing it:

  • Maintain a proper body weight.
  • Increase walking and other weight-bearing exercises.
  • Cut down on caffeine and alcohol.
  • Stop smoking.
  • Get enough calcium through diet and supplements, including Vitamin D.
  • Prevent falls in older adults by installing hand railings, or assistive devices in the bathroom or shower.
  • Ask your healthcare provider about medicines that may help.

Our physicians the Health Center for Health and Wellness will work alongside patients suffering from osteoporosis, or other conditions, to help them find a new balance in their day-to-day.
