07 May Osteobusters
The Osteobusters Exercise and Education Program is a community-based program for older adults which encourages participants to take steps to build and to maintain strong bones. It is presented in a small group format and is led by trained peer volunteers.
The program consists of exercises designed to improve balance, muscle strength and posture, and to encourage participation in weight-bearing activities.
Engaging in regular exercise to the extent of your abilities may help you to:
- Maintain bone density and bone strength in adulthood
- Increase muscle mass
- Improve posture, body mechanics and balance
- Reduce the risk for fall-related fractures
