Tip of the Day

image for Tip of Day

Follow a regular plan of exercise! Exercise helps our bones, particularly our long bones and the bones of the spinal column, rebuild and repair themselves as they should. Without exercise, they become thin and porous - a condition known as osteoporosis. Strong muscles protect your joints and spinal column, improve your posture and balance, increase your mobility, and reduce the likelihood of falls and other injuries and give you a younger body image.
