The definitive and easy-to-follow exercise guide for maintaining healthy, strong bones. More than 25 million Americans, almost 10% of our population, suffer from osteoporosis.

The good news is that we can help prevent and treat osteoporosis and its precursor, osteopenia. Exercise can increase bone density, strengthen muscles, and improve balance and flexibility, thus reducing the.

I have been using these exercises for years now, and realize that I have not written a review. The exercises are very well demonstrated. I like that they can be done without any special equipment and that three levels of exercise are provided - for osteoporosis prevention, for those with osteopenia , and for osteoporosis. After awhile, the exercises become routine, and it is possible to work through them without the book. I still refer back to it from time to time to make sure that I have not forgotten any, or that I am still doing them correctly. What I like very much is the section for keeping the skeletal frame aligned. That can be done as often as desired, and feels more like stretching exercises. Varying degrees of difficulty are presented making this useful for the less ambulatory (some can be done in bed or seated), to the very active and athletic ( using weights, resistance bands, more repetitions, and more difficult routines). I just purchased another copy for someone else. Also, I shared it with my trainer at the gym to show her what I should be doing. They do not always know, and this was helpful to her. Very pleased with the purchase. I keep it as a handy reference and it never goes to the bookshelf.

This is a wonderful guide to exercises which are done to prevent osteoporosis. The author has a master's degree in exercise physiology so she is well qualified to write this book. Some of the exercises require equipment like weights or a pilates ring.
The only thing I didn't like was that she would often move from sitting exercises to floor exercises and back again which is a nuisance.
I have been doing these exercises for three weeks and my muscles are happily sore.

Like many people who are diagnosed with osteopenia or osteoporosis, I recived just about NO information from my doctor on how to improve bone health. It was just -- "take this pill and I'll see you at your annual physical." I was deeply upset that she had no information for me, provided almost no insight, and seemed vastly disinterested in providing any. I went out and looked for books to provide the information I needed. I found this book and couldn't be happier. In conjunction with Gillian Sanson's enlightening book "The Myth of Osteoporisis," this book should be in the hands of everyone who is interested in bone health.

This is an absolutely fabulous book! Well laid out, exercises are easy to do, 2 each routines for those with osteoporosis, osteopenia, or no diagnosis of either. A GREAT segment on spinal alignment.

This is a MUST HAVE book for every person who is interested in bone health. I liked the fact that although the majority of the exercises show a female demonstrator, her partner in some segments was male, and the demonstrator for spinal alignment is male. Men get osteoporisis, too.

Wnderful book!! Highly recommended.

If you are at risk for osteoporosis then it is important to understand that taking calcium and vitamin D supplements is only the start toward assuring better bone health. The right kind of exercise is another critical consideration. This book is certainly a useful tool. It provides some basic, concise information about the importance of exercise and how to complete these activities effectively. The majority of the book is dedicated to providing the many strengthening and flexibility exercises you need. The descriptions are generally easy to understand, but even for the ones that are more complex, there are photographs to guide you through each one. Of course, the books is only part of what you will need. The exercises often require equipment, like some simple weights, "theraband", a therapy ball, and so forth.

You can take medication for osteoporosis but you need to get off the couch too. Working out and keeping your body active is what this book is about. No you do not have to be a workout fanatic. No the exercises are not too hard. This book helps you to build bone density and muscle strength with easy to follow exercise pictures. If you do have osteoporosis these exercises can help ease some pain too, plus you get moving and find yourself having more energy. Another plus about this book is it improves your balance. When you have osteoporosis you are especially concerned about falling and breaking a hip. I personally like this book because the workouts are easy and it has helped me improve my energy.

Good overall exercise manual for older women with or without bone density issues. So many exercise books/videos are either for the energetic younger woman or else for the opposite extreme of the fragile. This is for active women who want to be careful not to do harm exercising.

I recently (last 4 months) took a series of falls (I was 73 at the time--have a birthday today, am now 74) and took a twice a week, 5 week physical threrapy session which has helped tremendously with my balance and strength. It was recomended that I continue to do 10 exercises 3 times a week. I have a copy of the exercises, but this book gave me more detail about each and also offered other exercises I could do the other days of the week. The pictures and explanations are clear and concise. Thank Diane for her contribution.
