What is Osteoporosis and what are Its Symptoms?
Osteoporosis is a bone-weakening disease that occurs due to the loss of bone minerals and calcium in the bones, which makes bones prone to fracturing. It is often called a “silent disease” because an individual cannot feel when his/her bones are getting weaker.
The rate of Osteoporosis is much higher in women than men because of hormonal changes, which eventually worsen bone loss. Osteoporosis generally causes fractures in the spine and hip, taking a toll on your mobility and independence.
Individuals suffering from osteoporosis can greatly benefit from bioDensity training sessions. The reason is- a deskbound lifestyle spurs the loss of bone mass.
If you are dealing with osteoporosis, you might wonder if your workout sessions will be the major cause of bone fracture. The good news is that a 10-minute bioDensity session once a week is enough for improving bone density. The bioDensity training sessions will help in lessening the risk of osteoporosis-induced fractures.
Who is prone to Osteoporosis?
Individuals aged over fifty (50) are at grave risk of fracturing bones because of Osteoporosis (a silent disorder). Not only in women, osteoporosis may cause broken hips and spine in men but at a lower rate.
Risk factors for osteoporosis include:
- Age over 50
- Family history of osteoporosis
- Inadequate calcium intake
- Narrow-body built
- Medications such as breast cancer treatments, seizure medications, steroids, etc.
The Symptoms of Osteoporosis
Until an individual is diagnosed with Osteoporosis, symptoms of bone loss are impossible to detect and in some cases, it may not cause any symptoms, unless osteoporosis worsens.
Symptoms that develop once Osteoporosis worsens are:
- Breaking bones easily
- Back pain
- Stooped posture
- Gradual loss of height
The Advantages of bioDensity Training
bioDensity is the only world-class exercise-based therapy that helps to improve several medical conditions and health concerns including Osteoporosis. Its training sessions are conducted under professionals’ guidance. Attending bioDensity sessions can help improve osteoporosis in many different ways, including:
- Improved bone density
- Protecting bone tissue
- Better physical fitness
- Better muscle strength
- Improved mobility
- Better balance and coordination
- Lesser fall-induced bone fractures
- Reduced pain
Before You Start
If you are not regularly exercising and you are dealing with cardiovascular, metabolic, or renal disease (or suggestive symptoms), you should visit your doctor first to get a medical clearance for regular exercise. Your doctor might ask for some tests that include:
- Bone density measurement
- Fitness assessment
Selecting the Right Form of Exercise
These types of activities are recommended for individuals struggling with osteoporosis:
- Strength training exercises, especially for the upper back
- Weight-bearing activities
- Flexibility exercises
- Stability and balance exercises
bioDensity’s osteogenic loading exercises provides benefits of all the above exercises and activities. bioDensity sessions are completely safe and effective in preventing and improving symptoms of osteoporosis by increasing bone density. During a bioDensity session, you will be positioned in the strongest biomechanical position to produce maximal force for 5 seconds in 4 positions.
So, join bioDensity sessions now to fight against osteoporosis.
