  1. Does Exercise Help Osteoporosis?

    Yup…at least in my case.

    I fell into osteoporosis last year and my doctor began a vigorous campaign to put me on medication. From what I’ve read, the medication has several side effects that I wished to avoid (blood clots, spontaneous thigh fractures, mysterious jaw/bone pain), so Imy doctor and I agreed on an experiment. I would do weight-training and see what effect it had on my bones.

    “Remarkable, simply remarkable!” was my doctor’s reaction to my last bone density test. I had not only stopped bone loss, but built bone density so that I am now out of the osteoporosis range.

    In another year I’ll have the bones of one of you kids!

    Great news…except that now I need to keep lifting weights. Groan!
