Osteoporosis is a chronic condition characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of the bone tissue. It primarily affects the hip, spine, and wrist—sites that are common to fracture in people with osteoporosis. A fall or similar impact can cause a break of a weakened bone, often leading to a long period of recovery and disability. Therapy can help prevent falls and restore function in people with osteoporosis. Muscle-strengthening exercises, particularly those that focus on balance and coordination, may decrease the risk of falls and fractures—and improve the overall quality of life in people with osteoporosis.
Greendale Physical Therapy can help you manage these issues, including:
- Exercises to improve balance and coordination
- Strength-training to increase muscle strength and reduce the risk of falls and fractures
Greendale Physical Therapy, LLC helped me regain the strength in my ankles and feet to keep me walking and continue to exercise and golf. The staff are all well skilled, pleasant, and supportive. I would highly recommend them to my friends for PT. They are a great group!
