Stop Osteoporosis!

Stop Osteoporosis!

Osteoporosis is a disease that affects many older people.  Mainly affecting women because the bone density and bone quality are decreasing.  This usually leads to bone fractures within the body such as the hips, arms, legs, shoulders, spine and wrists. 

According to the Nordic Walking Magazine, a key role in preventing both osteoporosis and resulting fractures is Nordic Walking.  Exercising helps to maintain your muscle strength, agility, flexibility, mobility, motivation and confidence.  Your life can be more fulfilled when you are able to avoid the risks of aging and injury.

Your doctor may have always recommended usual walking for bone loading exercise yet including Nordic Walking in your exercise amps up the benefits.  As a result of pushing off a surface to propel yourself with the poles your muscles and bones in the wrist, upper arm and shoulder will receive a positive effect in preventing osteoporosis in key areas. 

The harder you push to propel yourself forward, the harder your muscles will work.  The harder your muscles work in a contracting motion the harder the tendons pull on the bones which develop your bone strength.

Nordic Walking is also great for balancing and stabilizing.  The poles decrease the risk of falling and fracturing fragile bones as well as build confidence among walkers that fear osteoporotic fractures. As stated in the Nordic Walking Magazine, a professor at the University of Graz, Austria, conducted a study that determined the effects on women with osteoporosis that participated in Nordic Walking.  The participants increased their hip bone density as well as their spines.  Nordic Walking has proved to be a valuable component in preventing and treating patients with osteoporosis.
