Abstract:

Over 25 million Americans suffer from osteoporosis, almost 10% of our population. The disease eventually affects 1 out of every 2 women and 1 out of every 5 men. And the incidence of osteoporosis is expected to double in the next 25 years. Most physicians are now encouraging an active lifestyle to help strengthen bones and reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Although exercise will not prevent bone loss, it will increase bone density and muscle strength, cutting down injuries and increasing flexibility. Exercises for Osteoporosis is an essential book for any and all at risk for this debilitating disease. With over 100 detailed exercises for all people, at all levels of fitness and all stages of the disease, Exercises for Osteoporosis is the best preventive medicine and the right prescription for maintaining health and well-being.
