The bad news: On average we lose 1% of bone density each year after age 35!
The good news: There are exercises and other activities that can keep your bones strong.
Join Dr. Janson for an overview of osteoporosis and how nutrition and exercise can play a role
in bone health. There will be a demonstration of specific exercise and posture corrections that
are especially beneficial in the treatment of osteoporosis. The session will use therabands
and/or light weights.
