Osteoporosis

Frequency

Structured exercise for three to five sessions per week. In addition, some form of weight-bearing activity should be advised on a daily basis, along with an active living approach.

Intensity

The intensity should be between 50 and 75% HRmax. Type

Weight-bearing exercises are recommended, i.e. stair climbing, brisk walking, stepping. Falls in this group are more likely to result in a fracture, therefore, exercises that encourage strength, balance and coordination should be encouraged. Strengthening should target individual vulnerable sites and postural muscles, such as hip flexors and extensors and back extensors. Exercise leaders should include exercises that will help to develop motor skills and coordination. Care should be taken to avoid making the exercises complicated until motor skills have improved.

Time

The overload period should last between 20 and 30 minutes.
