Osteoporosis & Osteopenia Programs
Osteoporosis & Osteopenia Programs OSTEOPOROSIS literally means “porous bone”. It is a disease that causes bones to weaken and become brittle, which may lead to painful fractures and excessive curvature of the upper back.

OSTEOPENIA is a precursor to osteoporosis and indicates that bones are already weakened. Fortunately, osteoporosis is both preventable and treatable.

Dresher Physical Therapy's
Six-Week Educational Program

Exercise is essential in the treatment of osteoporosis. Regular weight-bearing and muscle-strengthening exercises have been shown to preserve and/or increase bone health. Dresher Physical Therapy now offers a 6-week, specifically designed treatment program. Under the supervision of a Licensed Physical Therapist, participants will receive individualized exercise prescriptions including:

• Weight-training to build strength in the muscles that support your spine and hips,
• Cardiovascular conditioning with weight-bearing exercises to improve bone strength,
• Balance training to improve agility and prevent falls.
