Osteoporosis Support Group
Attendance was enthusiastic. We watched Our Videos (top right) while waiting for all to arrive. Discussion was spirited.
Fall prevention, balance and strengthening exercises were the main topics. To take control naturally we did “the Stork” by balancing on one foot. Holding this position for a full minute is quite a challenge. We discussed “Wii Fit” and formal Physical Therapy training locally with Guia Palma, PT.
We drank milk and munched cookies while discussing how to scatter Calcium Citrate supplements throughout the day (as needed) to reach 1500 mg total calcium daily in doses of not more than 5-600 mg each. It’s harder than you think.
We’re all in this together.
