What Movements To Avoid With Osteoporosis

June 26, 2017

There are certain activities and movements that should be either avoided or modified when diagnosed with Osteoporosis. These movements include daily activities like picking something up from the floor or when tying your shoes. Bending forward can be done, but it should be done in a way that will not cause the spine to fracture.

The Number 1 Rule

When bending forward NEVER twist and bend at the same time. Turn your body so that you are facing whatever is on the floor straight on, then bend. The same goes for twisting and bending above the head.

When you twist and bend this is what can cause a hairline fracture.

How Should You Bend?

First and foremost, extend the spine. Think of the base of the spine as an anchor and extend/stretch your head up towards the ceiling. When doing this you will be creating a bit more space between each vertebrae.

Maintaining the extension/stretch in your spine, you now bend. If you are bending towards the floor, bend the knees and at the hip creases – DO NOT CURL THE SPINE – KEEP THE SPINE FLAT. Keep bending the knees.

When tying your shoes, if it is difficult to reach your feet, place your foot on a chair and then bend. Prior to bending stretch the spine, keep the spine flat and bend at your hip creases.

Other Daily Activities

Walking, sitting at the computer, reading, watching TV, driving… all these activities have one thing in common. When doing these activities keep your shoulders back and your chin parallel to the floor. Keep the spine elongated – no slouching.

You should be able to move through life’s daily activities safely while “Reversing Osteoporosis Naturally.”

    Recently diagnosised with this and high risk lumbar fracture with a bone density test. Went through P/T to learn how to move and just received my first Prolia injection. My goal is to not take Prolia. How do I reverse the risk of Bone Fx naturally? I heard that biodentical pellet injections can help vs. something so harsh on my body as Prolia?

      Depending on your dexa scores it may be necessary to be on the medicine for the time being. During this time support the body by following a bone friendly diet, supplements, weight bearing exercises and learn techniques for managing stress. These are lifestyle changes that once they are incorporated and your scores get better you can eventually go off of the medicine and have a lifestyle that supports the ongoing production of building strong healthy bone. As far and the bioidentical pellet injections please discuss with your doctor, as with any medication there are many variables to consider.
