1. Nutritional Foundations for Bones

In addition to the well-known calcium and vitamin D, certain foods offer hidden benefits for bone health. Incorporate calcium-rich foods like sardines, canned salmon, collard greens, and tofu into your diet. Vitamin D sources such as fatty fish, egg yolks, and fortified cereals are also crucial.

2. Exercise Smartly

Regular exercise is vital, but it doesn’t have to be strenuous. Engage in low-impact exercises like Pilates, which are excellent for bone strength. Aim for at least two and a half hours of activity per week.

3. Early Detection Through DEXA

A DEXA scan is an efficient way to assess your risk for osteoporosis. This simple, non-invasive test is recommended if you have a personal or family history of fractures.

4. Medication Review

Certain medications can influence bone density. It’s important to review your medications with your doctor, mainly if they include treatments for conditions like epilepsy, asthma, or bowel diseases.

5. Tailored LOC Exercise Classes
