By: Mark Kelly, PhD
Webinar Description:
This webinar will discuss the various physiological mechanisms, exercises, and dietary approaches that not only strengthen bone but help prevent falls which can break the bone. SAFE (strength, agility, flexibility, and equilibrium) exercises that emphasize areas prone to breaking will be demonstrated. You will need to rethink the defensive posture of not getting osteoporosis and think about using exercise, nutrition and even drugs in synergistic ways to enhance bone density, and rethink what intensity is for bones compared to normal methods for measuring it for endurance or strength. You will also need to rethink what you considered good for bones and how much you really need to exercise your clients. Finally learn the SHOW ME pneumonic for areas prone toward breaking and the exercises to stop this from occurring. This presentation is supported by the National Osteoporosis Foundation and the MedFit Education Foundation.
