Pilates for Osteoporosis
I heard from a lovely lady once that she would love to do Pilates but she was afraid of doing because she had osteoporosis. And her Dr told her she can’t bend forward. So, she was afraid of moving and “break herself”.
Understanding exactly what to avoid and how to move properly is the key to enjoy life without missing your favorite activities.
It’s important to know that flexion (forward bending) and rotation place too much stress on spinal vertebrae and yes for people with T-score around – 2.9 and no muscle strength can be harmful. Strengthening + balance can help prevent spinal fractures and falls (that could lead to a broken hip).
This is vital information for your arsenal but knowing the contraindications can give you NO fear of moving. You may depend on certain exercises that have worked in the past. Now you need an exercise program tailored to your new needs. We are talking about a Pilates class made for you.
