Osteoporosis, generally speaking, is when a person has weak or brittle bones. In cases like this it can be hard to do things that require physical exertion because of the possibility of hurting oneself. With osteoporosis people need to be very careful to ensure they are not damaging their body or causing permanent injuries. This, like many other physical conditions, is a very serious matter that needs to be handled with extreme caution.
When a body has bones that are weak and they are feeling fragile, it may seem like the last possible option is to exercise. Though this may not seem like an option for them at all physically, it may be just the remedy they have been looking for. Everyone has a different body, and everyone’s body can handle different amounts and types of exercises. The important factor in rebounding is that it is an extremely low-impact workout. Even standing on the rebounder you can feel you body constantly stabilizing itself, thus helping strengthen your body even a little.
Walking, jogging, slowly bouncing (barely leaving the Rebounder) are just three examples of small things you can do in order to begin strengthening your body. As you feel yourself starting to feel better you can slowly work up to different exercises like crunches, upper body exercises, and even beginning to jump higher. Be patient with yourself, but be persistent. Keep in mind that every day your body is becoming better and healthier. As you have a mantra of everyday improvement, you will stay motivated to keep at it until you begin to see the results you are looking for.
Remember to consult with a doctor before beginning a workout program. It is also important to start your workout plan slowly and don’t become too eager before you know your body’s limitations. As you go throughout your workout regiment, remember to have fun and be as positive as possible. Each workout counts, and you’re on your way to a better you.
