Certain types of exercise can increase muscle mass, which in turn enhances strength, muscle control, balance and coordination.
Good balance and coordination can mean the difference between falling - and suffering a fracture - and staying on your feet.
Strong evidence shows that regular physical activity can reduce falls from nearly a third in older adults at high risk of falling.
You know exercise is good for your heart. You know exercise is good for your muscles. And exercise is good for your bones. Exercise is essential.
All exercises for bone strength have one or more of the following attributes:
They provide resistance
They are weight-bearing
They provide impact
They involve sudden changes of direction
They help improve your balance
