Taking Charge of Your Bone Health

Did you know that 1 in 2 women and 1 in 4 men over the age of 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their remaining lifetime, and that osteoporosis is responsible for 1.5 million fractures a year in the US?

 

There is a lot of confusing information about what to do if you have been diagnosed with osteopenia or osteoporosis. You’ve probably heard that exercise is good, but medical evidence shows that some common exercises such as toe touches can actually put you at risk for spinal fracture.

Joanne Fagerstrom, PT, CFP, will discuss ways to prevent such fractures in this free Zoom workshop. A physical therapist for over 40 years, she was diagnosed with osteoporosis in 2009. She then began to research the condition and to develop her bone health program, which has enabled her to reverse the diagnosis.

She will present information based on the latest, evidence-based guidelines from the medical community.

In this presentation, she will focus on exercises – those that are good and those that should be avoided for people with spinal osteoporosis.
