Osteoporosis is a bone problem that occurs in an individual, this condition stops the proper bone tissue repair and this leads to pain and uneasiness, sometimes even excruciating. This article talks about the different ways one can prevent osteoporosis.Nutritional diet A high nutritional diet is the very first thing any orthopaedic would recommend. Especially one which is rich in calcium and Vitamin D. These two nutrients act as a stabilising agent inside the body and directly contributes to bone health. Unhealthy eating habits like having junk food on a daily basis will only hamper the body in the long run.Daily Exercise routineA weight-bearing exercise routine is highly crucial in maintaining bone health and keeping all muscles active. These exercises include running, jogging, weight lifting etc. However does not include twisting of the spinal cord or any weight displacement in front of the waist. Exercises also allow the body to be agile and fit, meaning you are also free from serious injury should you get into a small accident.Proper medication With regular wear and tear of muscle and bone tissues, the body reacts quickly to help heal and repair those tears almost instantaneously. This helps in understanding how much our body really does for us. However, with age this process of quickly self diagnosing these issues inside our body wears down and needs a little push from time to time. Consult your orthopedic for proper medication on these issues and it’ll be helpful in the long run.Weight maintenance It is no rocket science to think that your bones carry the weight of your body and hence it is only natural to assume (Which is now also confirmed by various study groups) that an individual with lesser body mass or body mass equal to that of the carrying capacity of the structure is less likely to be affected by osteoporosis.Understanding your body The human body has many functions and we all do our bit on the daily. However, we all have our limitations and must understand what our body is capable of doing and what it is not capable of doing. One cannot live a sedentary lifestyle for years and get up one day deciding to do a handstand. This could lead to serious muscle and bone injury, which will further increase your chances of getting diagnosed with osteoporosis.
