Prioritising Your Bone Health

Emma Glynn
Managing Executive and Senior Physiotherapist at Life Ready Physio + Pilates Camberwell

April is Osteoporosis Awareness Month at our Life Ready Physio + Pilates Camberwell clinic, and we’re on a mission to empower you with the knowledge and tools you need to protect your bone health and thrive.

Taking care of your bone health is essential for maintaining overall wellbeing and quality of life and as your trusted physiotherapist, I want to share some valuable insights and practical tips to help you prioritise your bone health.


Exercise Your Way to Stronger Bones

Regular physical activity is one of the key ways to maintaining bone density and strength.

According to Benedetti et al (2018),  people with osteoporosis should engage in weight-bearing, balance, and strengthening exercises to reduce falls and fracture risk and help stimulate bone growth.

Good news, our tailored bone health exercise program, can help you do this! Keep an eye out for more details and promotions of this new service in our upcoming newsletter.


Nourish Your Bones with the Right Fuel

Nutrition plays a crucial role in bone health, so ensure you’re getting enough calcium and vitamin D through your diet or supplements.

Bone-healthy foods like dairy products, leafy greens, and fatty fish support strong bones and reduce the risk of osteoporosis-related fractures.


Kick Bad Habits to the Curb

Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can weaken your bones and increase fracture risk. Take steps to quit smoking and reduce your alcohol intake to protect your bone health and overall wellbeing.
