Working with a qualified health professional who knows how to assess your needs and design a safe and effective osteoporosis exercises can be one of the most important health decisions you will make.
A good starting point for many people is to take an osteoporosis exercise education program in their community. Education is key to osteoporosis prevention.
This week I am highlighting Guelph-based South City Physiotherapy. In future posts I will try to highlight additional osteoporosis classes and other resources in various communities.
