Osteoporosis is the thinning of bone tissue and loss of bone density over time.


What you do in physical therapy is very dependent on you: the cause of your osteoporosis, your physical fitness level, your risk level for spinal fractures, and what your body can handle. Generally, though, the physical therapist will work with you to develop an exercise plan that involves weight-bearing exercises (such as walking or tennis) and strengthening exercises (such as weight lifting).


Depending on your needs, Bob Wallace and his therapists may also work on your balance and posture. Improved balance will help you prevent falls. Your physical therapist may also teach you new ways to safely handle your "daily activities," such as getting in and out of bed or a chair. With weakened bones, those activities—ones you once found simple—can be challenging, and if you fall, you could fracture a bone.
