Question and answer
What type of exercises should a 55-year-old woman do to help fight against osteoporosis?
If you have osteoporosis, you should avoid any movements that require you to bend forward from the waist, such as doing a toe touch. When you bend forward from the waist, your shoulders and back become rounded. [ This is also known as spine flexion and can increase the risk of a spine fracture. Many movements that involve spine flexion can be modified by bending the knees and hinging at the hips. Gentle twisting motions should be safe for most people. If you have osteoporosis or are otherwise at risk of breaking bones in your spine, you should avoid twisting to a point of strain. Examples
include a full golf swing or swinging a tennis racquet. Ask your healthcare provider, who knows you best, what types of exercises and movements are safe for you. ]
