Exercising with Osteoporosis
on 16 Nov 2018 by Liz | Occupation: Housewife
I love the way Susan and Teejay are able to fit the pilates programme to everone’s individual needs; in my case osteoporosis. I could not do high impact exercises such as skipping or running on tarmac, so Susan fitted a small trampoline to the end of my Reformer bench.
Having been diagnosed 3 years ago, my check-up bone density scan taken last year showed that my bones were improving: one hip had gone from osteoporosis to having less serious osteopenia, ie thinning of the bone rather than looking like a Swiss cheese!
I also think the exercises improve my circulation as they seem to involve every muscle in the body; I come out of my weekly class feeling stronger and fitter.
What’s not to like about doing a work out lying on your back!
