How to Improve Bone Strength & Become #MomStrong, O'Fallon, Missouri

Osteoporosis is a debilitating condition that affects countless women around the world every day. A weakened skeletal system opens the door for many health issues and disabilities.

By understanding osteoporosis, you can take steps to protect yourself and improve bone strength by making lifestyle changes.

Your Guide to Osteoporosis & Bone Strength

What Is It?

Your bones consist of living tissue and are constantly changing. Density determines how strong they are. As you age, they may weaken. In the case of osteoporosis, bone becomes porous, making it more fragile and susceptible to fractures and breakage. As bone loss outpaces regrowth, bones become more brittle. This can be debilitating for women, the largest demographic affected. They represent 80% of the estimated 10 million people living with the disease in the U.S. One in every two women over the age of 50 will suffer a bone break at some point. A variety of factors contribute to the condition, including the size of women’s bones, genetics, and a drop in estrogen production.

How Can It Be Prevented?

Consume a healthy amount of protein. Talk to your doctor to determine how much you should be consuming based on your genetics and body type. Aim to exercise at least three times a week and include light strength training to improve bone density. If you have a family history of the disease, stay on top of exams with your doctor so they can detect early symptoms. Limit your alcohol intake. Avoid smoking and second-hand smoke, as both have been linked to heightened risk of fractures and healing complications afterwards.
