Don’t get me wrong. I want you to care about your bone density.

I’m going to assume that you already know that poor bone health can lead to osteoporosis.

You already know that women are more at risk of developing osteoporosis than men (largely due to the sharp drop in oestrogen that happens at menopause.)

You probably already know that you need to be thinking about things like calcium, vitamin D, weight bearing exercise…

But if one of your biggest concerns about osteoporisis is falling and breaking a bone, then why are you also not thinking about how you can reduce your risk of falling?

Falling over is not just down to bad luck.
Sure, there are some risk factors that we have little control over (like having diabetes, depression, dizziness, being on lots of medication)…
But did you also know risk factors for falls include:
⭐️poor balance
⭐️reduced muscle strength
⭐️walking difficulty
⭐️functional limitations
⭐️pain ?

These are ALL things I work with women of all ages weekly to improve.

When out muscles are stronger, our balance is better, our pain is under control and we move through our days with more confidence, our risk of falling is reduced.

Instead of only obsessing over your bone density, or making your world smaller to reduce your risk of falling, how about we work on expanding your capacity instead?
