I was diagnosed a year ago with osteoporosis in spine (T -3.1) and osteopenia in hip (T -2.6). I have been on Calcium and Vit D supplementation and exercising regularly.
I have decided to give exercise a boost as I read more and more alarming stories of osteoporosis medications and would like avoid them as much as possible. My current routine is working my upper body with a pair of 10LB dumbbells and lower body with squats. I also get some walking over the weekends. I feel my exercise routine is not challenging enough and want to seek professional advice.
So far I have read Sara Meeks book but little else on exercises for osteo patients. Question is, where do I go for exercise advice? Are there PTs who specialize in working with osteoporosis patients? Are there any good educational resources that others have used?
