Exercise Prevents Osteoporosis

The word osteoporosis means porous bones. It is the most common type of bone disease and is estimated to affect about one in every five American women over the age of 50. Whether your focus is prevention or coping with osteoporosis, regular exercise boosts peak bone mass, reduces your risk for fractures and helps strengthen your muscles. Consult your physician before beginning an exercise program.
