Menopause & bone strength
During menopause, the body goes through changes in hormones, body composition, energy levels, and more. This makes exercise therapy one of the best treatments to help with changes and benefit women in a number of ways:
Improves sleep and reduction in disturbances
Assists in weight control
Reduced incidence of chronic disease (menopausal women have a higher risk of experiencing chronic diseases)
Improved quality of life
Keeps the body fit and able
During and after menopause, bone density and strength is more important than ever. Bone loading exercise is the best way to improve bone health and decrease the risk of osteoporotic fractures. Balance, proprioception, and coordination training is also very important during this time. Expertly prescribed exercise by an Accredited Exercise Physiologist at Seed can strengthen and load bones safely and effectively, to drastically reduce the risk of fractures, falls, and injuries.
