I recently read this article through the NPR app on my phone. The overall takeaway is that the risk is still safer than being sedentary. I totally agree!
However, while I think it is awesome that they are doing the research and finding the correlations between who is likely to get a fracture and how it may impact their lives……
I completely disagree with their advice.
“recognize the limits of your strength, he advises, and maybe work on training the dog not to pull on the leash.”
I mean, yes- train your dog, but recognize the limits of your strength?
How about any or all of the following:
- improve your balance
- focus on fall prevention
- roll out your feet and do some exercises to improve awareness in your feet
- learn how to safely increase strength and mobility
I could go on and on, but you get the drift.
Balance is a skill. It gets better with practice.
You can improve your bone density, strength, and gait.

The next session starts on 4/3….
Registration is still open!
(There is no class 4/1 for Cesar Chavez Day, there may be some confusion because it is listed differently in a few places.)
