Stepping Stones to Better Bones
‘Stepping Stones to Better Bones’ turns the spotlight on osteoporosis. In this two part educational seminar we help patients better understand the nature and difficulties posed by osteoporosis. Each session includes a lecture component followed up with active exercise advice and instruction to help improve strength and daily function in the safest and most appropriate manner. The sessions are conducted in a small group format with a maximum of 5-6 individuals.
The program provides valuable information on the signs and symptoms of this almost silent problem, risk factors, bone density testing, fractures and their prevalence, as well as exercise and diet principles. We will also discuss current treatment and medical management options, vitamin supplementation and how to reduce the risks of injury that occur secondary to osteoporosis.
Our Stepping Stones sessions run according to demand. Please call us to register your interest and we will happily advise you of upcoming availability.
