Pilates for Osteoporosis

For prevention or treatment, it’s never too late to start Pilates for Osteoporosis

I have some risk factors? What should I do?

If you have any concerns about Osteoporosis, speak with your GP as soon as possible. You doctor may arrange for you to have a DEXA scan in hospital, a risk-free, pain-free special x-ray of your bone density. In the meantime, get started on a regime of better nutrition and gentle weight-bearing exercise under our expert guidance. Good posture and life-long mobility start with strong, healthy bones.

Osteoporosis? That’s for older ladies, right?

Wrong! Osteoporosis, and its precursor Osteopaenia, can affect both sexes and any age group, even children. Poor nutrition, absorption difficulties (caused by conditions such as coeliac disorder), eating disorders, and the simple facts of aging, mean that our bones are vulnerable to loss of strength.

I already have osteoporosis. Is it too late?

It’s never too late to start living a stronger, healthier life. Gentle, weight-bearing exercise is known to prevent deterioration and even improve bone health. Additionally, our expert Pilates instructors will help you strengthen your muscles and improve your balance, reducing the risk of a fall which may lead to a bone fracture.
