Is it possible to reverse osteoporosis?

Harris H. McIlwain, MD
Rheumatology
Weight-bearing exercises stimulate the cells that make new bone. By increasing weight-bearing exercises, we encourage our bodies to form more bone and can delay or actually reverse the destructive process of osteoporosis that results in painful or debilitating fractures. By adding strength training, you improve your muscle strength, flexibility and reduce the likelihood of falling, as you get older. One-third of all women who live to age 90 will break a hip because of osteoporosis and men are vulnerable too. I believe that daily exercise is a small price to pay to keep bones strong and fracture-free!
