Lately, I’ve noticed my mom’s wrists have been irritating her more than usual lately. I suggested to her to drink more milk or anything with a lot of vitamin D and calcium. Then I felt there are more things she could do. So I went on WebMD and found a bunch of exercises for bone health.
- Walking – Taking regular walks can help strengthen the hip bones. All you need to do is walk about 30 minutes a day. It doesn’t even have to be all at once, it could spread throughout the day.
- Strength or Resistance Training – Careful weight training can help prevent osteoporosis or stop it from getting worse. Strength training could be done in various ways, from free weights to simply using soup cans. Try to do strength training at least two to three times a week.
- Yoga – In a study, high-impact yoga has shown to slow bone loss in women aged 50 to 60 when practiced three times a week.
These exercises don’t just strength the bones, but provide a whole range of other benefits. It strengthens the muscles, improves cardiovascular health, relieves pain, aids sleep, and even helps depression.
