                                                    SENIORS - Q & A

1. I am a postmenopausal woman. Is it too late for my bones to benefit from weight-bearing exercise?

2. I'm a senior, can I benefit from this? Is there a point at which a person becomes too old to begin an exercise program and still benefit from it?

3. What are the chances of the average person getting osteoporosis?

4. If osteoarthritis causes your joints to hurt, why is exercise recommended? Doesn't this hurt your joints even more?

5. As a senior are my needs in terms of exercise the same as a younger person?

 

 

 

 I am a postmenopausal woman. Is it too late for my bones to benefit from weight-bearing exercise?

Absolutely not! Research has shown that weight-bearing exercise can reduce the rate of bone loss even among postmenopausal women. Weight-bearing exercise includes activities such as walking, running, and resistance training.

You can benefit from weight-bearing exercise at any age. See your physician to educate yourself about your bone health. Your physician can order a test to assess your bone density and give you information about supplements and nutrition to reduce the mineral loss of your bones. Itís never too late to improve the health and strength of your bones.

I'm a senior, can I benefit from this? Is there a point at which a person becomes too old to begin an exercise program and still benefit from it?

 

Absolutely not! Research has actually shown a well-planned exercise program can help elderly seniors quit using walkers and wheelchairs. For more on this, visit here.

What are the chances of the average person getting osteoporosis?  

Here's a general rule of thumb.

A 50 year old has a 50% chance of getting osteoporosis.

A 60 year old has a 60% chance of getting osteoporosis.

A 70 year old has a 70% chance of getting osteoporosis.

Women are up to five times more likely to get it than men.

If osteoarthritis causes your joints to hurt, why is exercise recommended? Doesn't this hurt your joints even more?

 

Exercise that involves the movement of your joints strengthens and improves the muscles that hold the joint. It actually decreases the pain of osteoarthritis. A good overall exercise program, including cardiovascular training, resistance training, and flexibility training, is recommended for those who have osteoarthritis.
