Why Exercise Is Good For Bone Health

Bones are living tissue and become stronger by exercising. You can maintain your muscle strength by exercising, which then helps prevent falls and fractures. According to National Institutes of Health, weight-bearing exercise is the best type of exercise for your bones. Weight-bearing exercises are good for you because they force you to work against gravity. Weight training, jogging, hiking, tennis and walking are all examples of weight-bearing exercises.

It’s always important to talk to your doctor before starting an exercise program, especially if you have osteoporosis.
