Bone Fit

Osteoporosis is a disease that slowly, quietly weakens bones, often going undiagnosed – even when it breaks them. Osteoporosis is caused by low bone mass and the weakening of bone, which can lead to increased risk of fracture.

Bone Fit ™ (Managing Osteoporosis through Exercise)

Osteoporosis Canada has a program called Bone Fit™. The program provides education and training to health and fitness professionals. They learn what exercises are safe and effective for people with osteoporosis. A Bone Fit™ professional can help you plan an exercise program.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis, known as the “silent thief,” can cause bones to deteriorate over a number of years without any signs or symptoms, until a bone breaks. Unfortunately, by the time this happens, the disease is already fairly advanced.

 

PREVALENCE

While Osteoporosis can affect people at almost any age, it is most common among Canadians 50 years of age or older.

  · 2 million Canadians are affected by osteoporosis

  · At least 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men will break a bone due to osteoporosis in their lifetime

  · Fragility fractures represent 80% of all fractures in menopausal women over the age of 50

  · Fractures from osteoporosis are more common than heart attack, stroke and breast cancer combined
