Overview
The definitive and easy-to-follow exercise guide for maintaining healthy, strong bones.

More than 25 million Americans, almost 10% of our population, suffer from osteoporosis. While it is often thought of as an old woman's disease, about 20% of osteoporosis sufferers are men and a growing number of young women, especially athletes, are being diagnosed with the disease.

The good news is that we can help prevent and treat osteoporosis and its precursor, osteopenia. Exercise can increase bone density, strengthen muscles, and improve balance and flexibility, thus reducing the risk of injury and helping to maintain daily functioning.

Featuring a comprehensive approach that incorporates yoga, Pilates, and Feldenkrais techniques with traditional weight-training and aerobics exercise, the third edition of Exercises for Osteoporosis includes:

■ Targeted exercises for at-risk body parts including hips, spine, wrists, and ankles
■ All-new sections on improving balance and flexibility to help prevent falls and fractures
■ Complete beginner, intermediate, and advanced workout programs

With more than 125 detailed exercises for 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.
