What is Bone Health?

Bones provide structure, protect organs, anchor muscles and store calcium in our bodies.  We encourage our kids to drink their milk to grow up strong and build strong muscles, but once we turn 30 our bone mass begins to decline.  Decreased bone mass put us at risk for fractures and osteoporosis. 

How likely you are to develop osteoporosis depends on how much bone mass you have by the time you reach 30 years old and how quickly you lose it after that. The higher your bone mass is at its peak, the more bone you have saved for later and the less likely you are to develop osteoporosis as you age.

 

What Affects Bone Health?

There are a variety of things that can affect bone health, some of which include: 

-The amount of calcium in your diet 

-Physical activity

-Race, sex, age

-Tobacco and alcohol usage 

-Family history 

-Hormones 

-Medications 

 

How Can I Have Strong Bones ?

Making sure that you have a diet that is high in calcium and Vitamin D is a great place to start but including physical activity in your daily routine will help to make sure that your bones stay strong.  Weight-bearing exercises, such as walking, jogging, and climbing stairs, can help you build strong bones and slow bone loss.  If you think you are at risk for osteoporosis or would like to make sure that you have an exercise routine that will keep you strong, consult one of our physical therapists today.
