Osteoporosis is a terrible disease that is responsible for over a million broken bones each year. For many people it’s a major cause of fractures, back pain, spinal problems and loss of independence. While Osteoporosis cannot be cured, there are preventative measures you can take to combat this disease. Two great preventative measures are maintaining a healthy weight and exercising. A great piece of exercise equipment that we recommend is CanDo® Tubing-with-Handles.
CanDo® Tubing-with-Handles consist of resistance tubing that has durable foam covered handles pre-attached to its ends. Unlike heavy dumbbells, this lightweight exerciser is highly portable to use for strengthening and conditioning workouts. It can easily be taken anywhere to workout, whether that’s in your home, gym or even your hotel room.
The CanDo® Tubing-with-Handles exerciser is available in 7 color-coded resistance levels and 3 lengths to accommodate different needs. The shorter length exercisers are great for upper body workouts, while longer lengths can accommodate full body workouts. As you grow stronger, you can switch to a higher-level resistance exerciser while still performing the same workouts you’re already used to. Please note that the tubing is made of natural rubber latex, which may cause allergic reactions.
Regular exercise can help prevent osteoporosis and with this tool you can strength train without even needing to go to a gym. For the best workout plan to combat osteoporosis, it’s a good idea to see your physical therapist to see what exercises are best for you.
