Bone Up on Bones Workshop through Montgomery County Rec. @Restore Motion
Ages 18 & Up: During our adult years, our bones are in a continual cycle of breaking down and rebuilding. Excessive bone loss can be attributed to hormonal changes, both natural and from medications (e.g. cancer-fighting medications), smoking, alcohol consumption, diet, and certain medical conditions. This is called osteopenia or osteoporosis depending upon the severity of loss. The stronger our bones are, the less likely we will experience fractures in a traumatic incident. In conjunction with other types of interventions, bone loss can be slowed and sometimes reversed with exercise. This workshop will discuss concepts for developing an appropriate and safe exercise program to improve bone density and prevent further bone loss.
