Osteoporosis: How strong are your bones

Written by Sharon Hartley, Elite Pilates Instructor at Body Kinetics Mill Valley

Osteoporosis is a skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass and a deterioration of the bone tissue.  This leads to enhanced bone fragility & an increase susceptibility of bone fractures.  The National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF.org) predicts that 44 million Americans are at risk for osteoporosis (55% over the age of 50).  10 million Americans over the age of 50 have osteoporosis (200 million women worldwide) and nearly 34 million have osteopenia, 2 million are men.


What do you do about your back pain?

Most of us suffer or will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. For many of us, it's chronic and a part of our everyday lives but don't know what to do about it besides taking pain meds and resting. There is no "one cure fits all" but I believe there is always a solution to any problem.
First and foremost, get a diagnosis from your doctor to rule out other injuries and diseases that may be the actual source to your pain.
