The Better Bones program is designed to help you improve your bone density using evidence-based exercise in a safe and friendly environment.
Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists have designed the Better Bones program to teach those with decreased bone density how to use resistance training to improve their bone density.
In addition to increasing the size, strength and capacity of our muscles, regular physical activity and exercise play an important role in maintaining or improving bone density.
However, to obtain real improvement to bone density, exercise must be regular and ongoing. Bones only become stronger when a certain amount of impact or extra strain is placed on them, and there are specific types of exercises that are proven to build greater bone density.
