Osteoporosis is the most prevalent bone disease worldwide and predisposes affected individuals to fragility fractures. Exercise has been shown to have multiple health benefits in post-menopausal osteoporotic women. Current literature suggests that only resistance type exercises have a convincing impact on Bone Mineral Density. Exercise should be included in any multi-modality osteoporosis treatment plan with the goal of sustained exercise throughout life.
