Exercise could help Women Fight Osteoporosis

According to a research at the University of the Basque Country, a physical exercise programme based on a very basic, rudimentary material can help women suffering from postmenopausal osteoporosis to improve upper and lower limb strength as well as static and dynamic balance.

The researchers studied 68 women with postmenopausal osteoporosis of the age group 50 - 72, 34 of whom were randomly assigned to the Exercise Group while 34 to the Control Group. The subjects in the Exercise Group were supervised for programme of physical exercise involving strength and balance training for six months while the Control Group participants were supervised for strength and balance tests beforehand and afterwards.

The Exercise Group subjects improved their performance in muscular strength of the upper and lower limbs significantly while those in the Control Group worsened in both variables. Moreover, the exercise group had a significant improvement after the intervention with respect to the balance variable.
