Certified instructor description:
Osteoporosis and low bone mass are a major public health threat to more than 44 million people aged 50 and over in the U.S. alone. Every 20 seconds someone suffers a bone fracture as a result of this "silent disease." The good news is that osteoporosis is both preventable and treatable. One of the key elements to maintaining or improving your bone health is an effective exercise program. This program is developed by a team of health care professionals to help prevent and treat osteoporosis. This program strengthens bones and muscles, including the core muscles of the body; enhances balance and flexibility; and helps correct common postural problems. Certified exercise trainer Estelle Underwood’s precise and clear instruction utilizes breathing to develop awareness and concentration. The DVD contains an introduction by Alexandra Pettis, DC, CAS and concludes with information on the disease and keys to prevention and treatment by Andreas Subadya, MD, osteoporosis expert.
