Osteoporosis Is A Public Health Crisis

July 09, 20221 min read

I talk a lot about osteoporosis and the importance of weight-bearing exercise. This past week, I read at least five news articles, from 4 different countries, that all said the same thing - osteoporosis is a public health crisis, and most people don't know they have it until they break a weakened bone.

According to a recent article in the Alberquerque Journal, in the US, where I'm based, "over two million preventable fractures occur due to osteoporosis each year.... There are more fractures from osteoporosis every year than heart attacks, strokes, and breast cancer combined."

The best way to keep bones strong? Exercise.

What kind? Weight bearing on the feet (walking, jogging) and exercises that strengthen the core back muscles.

This is precisely what we do in the Strong Bones Pilates™ studio, where we modify movements to keep the spine safe, and use body weight, light weights, Pilates ring, bands, and the Tye4® to add resistance & strengthen our muscles and bones.

All workouts are custom modified, so you never have to worry that you're doing something that will hurt you.

You'll love the Strong Bones studio, with 4 fresh live classes every week, and access to over 100 class recordings in the on-demand studio.

""When I received my osteoporosis diagnosis, I messaged my friend Lynda for some sessions to get the Classical Pilates modifications.

Lynda can see 20/20 through that webcam, and her osteoporosis-safe modifications are just as challenging as the original versions, if not more so.

She won't baby you, she won't push you too much, but she will help you get stronger and understand what to modify and why."

Sunni Almond

"Lynda is creative, attentive and will work you hard - every part of you!

Her program is not just professional and accommodating but warm, personal, and tailored to your needs.

Nothing is too much trouble and she constantly comes up with new ideas to sort out any physical problems.

Highly recommend it!"

Gwen Heath Mitrano

"As a Pilates professional, I focus on my client's issues every day, and not always my own.

When I was diagnosed with osteoporosis, I needed someone I trusted to lead me through safe exercise sessions for my own body.

I can't believe how much stronger I feel and how much better my balance is in just 4 weeks!

I highly recommend Strong Bones for any woman with osteoporosis."
