Moderate, regular exercise is an essential part of any osteoporosis treatment program. However, any program should be undertaken with your doctor or physical therapist's advice and guidance, and should be begun slowly. Overly vigorous exercise could actually counteract your goals and may reduce the risk of injury. Incorporate balance and functional training into your existing cardiovascular and strength regimen; don't just increase the amount of work you do – change the mix. Remember, you can do more harm than good by doing strength exercises too often. Don't exercise the same set of muscles 2 days in a row.
