Prevent and Reverse Osteoporosis - This Activity Halts Osteoporosis
Is there a way to prevent osteoporosis?
Yes, says a new study published in the journal JAMA Network Open.
All you have to do is perform this simple activity.
But it must be done sooner than later.
Since bone strength in young adulthood is one of the main predictors of osteoporosis
later, researchers have spent a lot of time trying to discover how to establish strong
bones by age 25.
This is one of those studies you wish you had access to when you were a teenager.
As data, they used information obtained from the Occurs Avon Longitudinal Study of
Parents and Children in southwest England. These children were born in 1991 and
1992, and they managed to get complete information from 2,569 of them.
This information included physical activity scores collected at least once when they
were 12, 14, 16, or 25, so the researchers could know whether they regularly
engaged in light, moderate, or vigorous physical exercise.
To make the results more credible, the participants did not self-report their levels of
exercise but wore accelerometers for a period of time, for which the researchers had
to have at least four readings.
They then measured the bone mineral density of their participants’ hip bones or
femur neck bones at age 25 to get a score for bone strength.
Hip fractures are the most serious and most expensive manifestations of
osteoporosis, which is why the researchers concentrated their efforts there.
1. Those who had the strongest bones by age 25 were the same ones who engaged
in the most moderate to vigorous physical exercise in adolescence, while those who
engaged in only light physical exercise had lower bone strength.
2. The earlier the exercise, the better. Moderate to vigorous physical activity during
