Physical Activity & Bone Health

 Tue, 29th Mar, 2022

Our bones are continuously changing as new bone is made and old bone is broken down. When we are young, our body makes new bone faster than it breaks down old bone, and our bone mass increases. Most people reach their peak bone mass during the third decade of life. After that, bone remodeling continues, but we can lose slightly more bone mass than we gain.

This is why it is important to do weight-bearing and resistance exercises regularly. Examples include walking, hiking, jogging, climbing stairs, playing tennis, dancing, and lifting weights.

Yours in health,
