Exercise can prevent osteoporosis – TOI NEWS

On the eve of World Osteoporosis Day, doctors pointed out at an alarming rise in the number of osteoporosis patients. Almost every other person over the age of 50 years is likely to suffer from osteoporosis, they said.

According to International Osteoporosis Foundation, one in three women and one in five men aged 50 years and over will suffer an osteoporotic fracture. Osteoporosis makes bones weak and fragile so much so that they can break even after a minor fall, a bump, a sneeze, or a sudden movement. Fractures caused by osteoporosis can be life-threatening and a major cause of pain and long-term disability.

“Old people may not be fit for surgery and therefore, suffer pain forever,“ said Dr Udai Prakash, director and specialist in joint replacement, Udai Omni Hospital for Advanced Orthopaedics and Trauma. Osteoporosis is however, preventable and starting early is helpful.“The best thing that can be done to prevent osteoporosis is to exercise regularly as it helps keep the bone strength intact.
