Osteoporosis
The treatment for osteoporosis is a combination of medication, proper diet and exercise. But not all exercises are safe or appropriate for individuals with osteopenia or osteoporosis. Therefore, it is imperative that individuals with these diagnoses request therapists with specialized knowledge to offer the safest and most effective exercise program. Our therapists at Faith Regional can put together a comprehensive program based on the proper type of exercise, posture and education to provide you with the tools you need for osteoporosis treatment.
