OsTEOPENIA & OSTEOPOROSIS -
IMPROVE YOUR BONE CONDITION WITH HEALTH2U
At Health2u we are the only company to offer the Bone Conditioning Programme. Looking after your bone condition needs to start at an early age. Bone condition improves up until the age of 35 and there are factors such as weight bearing exercise that can help to enhance this bone condition to its optimum state before you start to have bone loss after the age of 35. When bone loss reaches a certain level it is called osteopenia and when there is even more bone loss it is called osteoporosis. Having osteoporosis does not mean that your bones will break but means your bones are more susceptible to fracturing. The hips, wrist and spine are more susceptible to osteopenia and osteporosis than other parts of the body. Due to the effects on the spine of osteoporosis over time it can lead to loss of height and in severe cases give people problems with indigestion and incontinence due to presssure on the internal organs.
What Is Our Bone Conditioning Programme?
The Bone Conditioning Programme is different from being just another exercise programme. It has the other benefits of building strength, flexibility, better posture and balance in people but the exercises are tailored to maximising the condition of the bones. Our programme is suitable for people as young as 17 through to 100+! The physiotherapist will assess you first taking into consideration if you have already developed osteopenia or osteoporosis and the level of it as this will affect the exercises you can do safely. They will carry out specific tests on your posture and movement, balance and strength. Then an exercise programme will be tailored to you to maximise your bone condition, strength, balance and flexibility and good posture which will also lower your risk of fracturing any bones.
