Preventing Osteoporosis: Staying Active

Certain factors can speed up bone loss or decrease bone growth. For example, a lack of activity makes bones lose their strength. Exercise plays a big part in maintaining bone mass, no matter what your age. The amount and type of activity you do also play a part in keeping your bones strong. Weight-bearing and resistance exercises, such as walking, aerobic dancing, and bicycling, are just a few of the activities that are good for your bones.
