Therapy – Resistance Exercise
Resistance exercise is using the resistance of an object or environment during exercise. Studies have shown that resistance exercise helps improve bone density. There are several forms of resistance training. Lifting weight help provides resistance that strengthens both muscle and bone. Make sure to start light and work your way into heavier weight with the help of a trained professional. Resistance tubes can also used. These are much easier than lifting weights because the resistance is provided by a small stretchy tube of rubber. It is easy to carry with you and because you aren’t straining the muscles by lifting anything heavy, there is less risk of injury. And finally, exercise like water walking and swimming is also excellent because the water provides a gentle and consistent resistance. Before starting any new exercise regime, it is important to talk with your Doctor.
