Fear of injury, leading to movement avoidance, leading to further bone density reduction.


Understanding the role of exercise physiology can be tremendously beneficial if you’re dealing with osteoporosis. Participating in regular physical activity not only strengthens your muscles and helps to maintain good balance, but it can also increase bone density, reduce the risk of falls, lessen your day-to-day pain, and ultimately enhance your quality of life.

How can an exercise physiologist help treat your Osteoporosis?

There have been many advances in the research of osteoporosis, leading to the discovery that we are able to improve bone density, and not just slow the progression. The human body reacts to “stress”, stress on the muscles, stress on the heart, stress on bones. This stress is good, and leads to the body repairing itself and making tissues stronger and more efficient at their jobs.

Under the constant umbrella of safety first, our clients work at appropriate intensities to create the stresses required to improve their bone density without threatening further injury. We do this through strength training, also helping you become stronger whilst improving your bone density. We also incorporate balance training, to help reduce the likelihood of falls and therefore the risk of fractures.

What factors can influence Osteoporosis?

  • Unfortunately, osteoporosis affects females at a much greater rate than males. This is due in part to having less mass, and the hormonal changes that occur during menopause (lower oestrogen levels).
    Low testosterone levels.
  • Age plays a significant role due to the changes that occur in the human body. You are more likely to develop osteoporosis as you mature.
  • Smaller individuals are more likely to develop osteoporosis due to less stress on the bones.
  • Family history.
  • Low activity levels throughout life, particularly reduced exposure to any form of strength training and weight bearing exercise.
  • Low calcium and vitamin D intake throughout life.
  • Excessive dieting.
  • Certain medications – please discuss with your GP.
  • Chronic heavy drinking.
  • Heavy smoking.

What to expect at your appointment

  • Thorough initial appointment with history taking.
  • Physical screening.
  • Planning and goal setting.
  • Education on the most recent research, ensuring you understand the appropriate exercise required for improvement.
  • Self management techniques.
  • Brief exercise session to lay the groundwork for progressions.

Osteoporosis treatment FAQs

Why do I have osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is caused by a mix of different factors, including age, family history, hormones, and lifestyle. While you’re unable to change some of the risk factors, it’s never too late to make changes to help improve bone density. Science has gifted us with a myriad of options to choose from to build back bone density and reduce fracture risk.

Your first port of call should be to your GP. They will discuss treatment options that include diet modification, medication, and exercise. While your GP may not be an expert in exercise, they can refer you on to an Exercise Physiologist, who is an expert in building bone density through strength training.

Bones, like every other tissue in the human body, react and grow when exposed to external stress. Training your muscles to be stronger, and doing load bearing exercise, such as walking, running, or jumping, stimulates your bones to grow and regenerate. The more targeted this exercise is, the better it works.

While it is true that anyone can exercise independently, Exercise Physiologists are trained to design and implement training programs that take into account your specific health needs and the latest in osteoporosis research. This not only helps maximise the benefits of strength training, but it also helps reduce the risk of injury.

While medication plays a crucial role in osteoporosis management, relying solely on it might not address all aspects of bone health. Incorporating exercise as part of a holistic treatment program not only assists in improving bone density, but you’ll see improvements in strength and balance, reducing the likelihood of falls and sustaining fractures. It’s always best to speak with your doctor to determine what the best course of treatment for you is.
