Yes, you can build bone after osteoporosis. You can reverse bone losses. So if you were diagnosed years ago you were told something different. But today, research is showing positively that three unique exercise types contribute significantly to bone health. There’s more, and I’ll share another resource at the end, but to get the recent update on research and put an end to fear about movement and exercise… this 


My Guest:

Belinda Beck is a Professor at Griffith University (Gold Coast, QLD) and the Menzies Health Institute Queensland. She founded The Bone Clinic, a translational research facility and clinical practice providing evidence-based exercise for patients with osteoporosis.

Belinda graduated from The University of Queensland (BHMS[Ed]) and the University of Oregon (MSc and PhD) and completed a postdoctoral research fellowship in the Stanford University School of Medicine (CA, USA).

Her work, primarily related to the effects of mechanical loading on bone, has involved both animal and human models, from basic to clinical research. Her particular focuses have been exercise interventions across the lifespan for the prevention of osteoporotic fracture, and the management of bone stress injuries in athletes and military recruits.

Recent projects have included the LIFTMOR clinical trials, the findings of which inform the Onero exercise program implemented at The Bone Clinic and licensed for delivery by exercise physiologists and physiotherapists around the world.
