$150.00

Term 2: Mon 15 April – Sun 30 June (11 weeks)

Class Details:

Osteoporosis is a condition characterised by the loss of calcium and other minerals from the bones. This results in the bone becoming more porous and susceptible to fractures. Exercise plays a vital role in maintaining bone health due to the progressive weight-bearing effect of resistance exercise which stimulates new bone growth. Exercise can also improve your balance and reduces the risk of falls and fractures, which will result in a substantially improved quality of life.

Osteoporosis requires very specific kinds of exercise. These include resistance exercises such as lifting weights and climbing stairs, high impact exercises such as heel-drops and jumps, aerobic exercises such as brisk walking and cycling, and balance exercises.

This program is led by a physiotherapist and is specifically for people who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis or who have experienced a “first low trauma” fracture.

Venue: Seminar Room, Wyllie Arthritis Centre, 17 Lemnos Street, Shenton Park.
