WOMEN WITH OSTEOPOROSIS AND VERTEBRAL FRACTURES: Improved Function
Quality of life is crucial! Post-menopausal women with osteoporotic vertebral fractures who joined in a 1 hour group exercise session two times a week for 6 months showed significant improvement in functional capacity measures – indicating that they could function and get around better – and a reduced risk and fear of falls. (1) That is a big deal! The occurrence of osteoporotic fractures is greater than 40% which often culminate in decreased quality of life, enhanced risk of mortality after the fracture, higher economic burden, depression, loss of independence as well as pain. (2) It is no wonder that our Orchard Park, NY osteoporotic patients worry about falls! Falling is dangerous due to the possible damage it can do to bones and the rest of the body which is especially not good for an person with osteoporosis and weakened bones! And fear of falling holds one back from fully participating in life. Exercising or performing physical activities that you can easily do is important!
PARTICIPATION AND OUTCOME OF EXERCISE IN OSTEOPOROTIC PATIENTS
Novelli Wellness Center is very sensitive to the fact that not every patient complies with on our exercise recommendation. No shame or guilt from us! That’s how we humans are! We would like to see our Orchard Park, NY osteoporosis patients increase their activity level in some way as we know it will have a positive effect. In a review of 20 published studies (1824 patients), exercise significantly increased lumbar spine and femoral neck bone mineral density and alleviated pain for primary osteoporosis patients. (3) Another study that is underway is evaluating how a 24-weeks-of-a-individualized exercise routine of aerobic and strength training exercises might expectantly positively impact muscle strength, balance, and bone mineral density as well as pain. (4) Together, Novelli Wellness Center and you will find the right mix of activities to boost your desire to participate in some physical activity exercise!
