Exercise Effects on Bones and Muscles for Women

As someone who has been diagnosed with osteoporosis, I understand how critical it is to have strong muscles and bones. Muscle strength declines as people age, but studies report that when people exercise they are stronger and leaner than others in their age group. My mum had osteoporosis and even though I have been exercised since age 30, through genetics I have it. Thank god I I have been incorporating strength exercise into muscle and bonesEmy routine for many years. Otherwise my deterioration would be a lot worse.

Statistics show that 80%, 75%, 70% and 58% of forearm, humerus, hip and spine fractures, respectively, occur in women. Overall, 61% of osteoporotic fractures occur in women, with a female-to-male ratio of 1.6. (International Health Statistics )

Effects on Osteoarthritis Patients
Joints require motion to stay healthy. Long periods of inactivity cause the arthritic joint to stiffen and the adjoining tissue to weaken. A moderate exercise program that includes low-impact aerobics, power, and strength training has benefits for osteoarthritis patients, even if exercise does not slow down the disease progression. Many patients who start an exercise program report less disability and pain. They are also better able to perform daily chores, and remain independent longer than their inactive peers. Older patients and those with medical problems should always check with their doctor before starting an exercise program.
