OSTEOPOROSIS

Osteoporosis is a disease which reduces bone density, leaving bones brittle and susceptible to fracture under high-impact incidents such as falls. Hips, wrists and the spine are the common areas where osteoporosis occurs, with sufferers often experiencing serious consequences after a fall. Over half of the Australians aged 50 or above have osteoporosis or osteopenia (bone weakness), and poor bone health contribute to more than 173,000 fractures annually. Our Cairns osteoporosis exercise: Onero program can help.

TREATMENTS

Maintaining healthy bones is essential to combatting osteoporosis and osteopenia. Our Cairns osteoporosis exercise: Onero program features high-intensity mechanical loading of bones to stimulate bone development, improve bone health and reduce the risk of bone density loss. In addition, the Wellness Embodied Cairns osteoporosis exercise: Onero program provides nutrition advice – including calcium and vitamin D intake strategies – to keep your bones strong.

ONERO EXERCISE PROGRAM

Wellness Embodied is now licensed to deliver the Cairns osteoporosis exercise: Onero program, using evidence-based practice to improve bone health in people with osteoporosis or osteopenia. Our Cairns osteoporosis exercise: Onero physiotherapists are qualified and trained to deliver the Onero program, taking participants through a range of high-impact and high-intensity loading exercises to improve bone and muscle strength, as well as balance and functional training that minimise the risk of falls.

  • Mobility exercises for shoulders, hips, knees, ankles, using weights
