Introducing Osteoporosis
Rehab
at 
Sandycove 

It is estimated that up to 300,000 people in Ireland have osteoporosis. It is more common in females who have gone through the menopause, but it can also affect men and children. Yet evidence-based exercise programs can prevent and reverse Osteoporosis by stimulating bone development. This reduces falls in at-risk individuals, helping to ensure mobility and health later in life.

People assume that breaking a bone is not serious. Yet, 20% of people aged 60+ who break their hip, will die within six-to-12 months, from the secondary effects of a fracture and 50% will lose their independence. 90% of fractured hips are due to Osteoporosis.

1 in 5 men and 1 in 3 women (1 in 2 over 65), are affected by Osteoporosis.

How does
Evidence-Based Exercise
treat Osteoporosis?

Evidence-based exercise programs treat Osteoporosis or prevent it by regenerating bone development...

 

  • Physical activity and exercise on a day-to-day basis are associated with improved bone strength and a lower risk of hip fracture. For example, a study of men and women aged 49–83 years identified that regular walking or cycling reduced fracture risk by up to 23% relative to hardly ever walking or cycling.

  • Combining weight-bearing and muscle-strengthening exercise promotes bone strength.

  • Exercise variety helps to load the relevant skeletal sites with forces in different directions, this promotes bone regeneration.

  • An evidence-based routine, that gradually builds bone density, reduces the risk of injury. To get the best results, increase activity with a guided treatment plan
