Health Tip: Exercise for Healthier Bones

Health Tip: Exercise for Healthier Bones

01/24/12

(HealthDay News) -- Want to keep your bones strong and healthy? Make sure you get plenty of exercise to help ward off problems such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and pain affecting the joints and lower back.

The Cleveland Clinic offers these suggestions for boosting your bone health:

  • Get low-impact exercise via activities such as swimming, walking and biking.
  • Perform gentle stretching and strengthening exercises.
  • Perform weight-bearing exercises such as dancing, climbing stairs, hiking and tennis.
  • Play sports such as golf that are relatively easy on the bones and joints.
