When it comes to preserving and boosting bone health, not all exercises are created equal. Supervised, bone-targeted, high-intensity resistance and impact exercises are the new gold standard in care for people who are living with (or at risk of developing) osteoporosis.

Discover new steps you can take to support your body and live well for longer during this informative community healthcare talk, where:
  • Exercise physiologist Katie Stewart will discuss the landmark outcomes of the LIFTMOR study revealing the direct benefits of exercise as medicine (EAM).
  • Pharmacist Jason Chew will review the different prescription medications and supplements for people who are living with, susceptible to developing or recently diagnosed with osteoporosis and osteopenia.

  • "Bones are the silent heroes of our body's architecture. As years pass, nurturing them becomes essential." - Katie Stewart

    Bone health by the numbers:
    + 20% of people aged 75+ years have osteoporosis or osteopenia (ABS 2018).
    + Osteoporosis is more common in women than men. Over 1 in 4 women aged 75+ have osteoporosis, compared with 1 in 10 men.
    + People aged 45+ with osteoporosis were almost 3 times as likely to experience very high levels of psychological distress, compared with those without the condition (2017-18 NHS).
    + People with osteoporosis were 2.7 times as likely to describe their health as poor, compared to those without the condition.
    + In 2020-21, there were 9300 hospitalisations with a principal diagnosis of osteoporosis and 107,000 hospitalisations for minimal trauma fractures in people aged 45+.
    + The average woman loses up to 10% of her bone mass in the first 5 years after menopause.
