The bad news: On average we lose 1% of bone density each year after age 35!

The good news: There are exercises and other activities that can keep your bones strong.  Join Dr. Sophia Janson for an overview of osteoporosis and how nutrition and exercise can play a role
in bone health.
 
There will be a demonstration of specific exercise and posture corrections that are especially beneficial in the treatment of osteoporosis. The session will use therabands and/or light weights.

Dr. Sophia Janson has almost 30 years of experience as a physical therapist. She is board
certified in Geriatric Physical Therapy and understands how the aging process impacts balance
and falls risk. The majority of her clinical experience is in home health care which includes
home safety assessments and falls prevention instruction. She is a clinical instructor for
physical therapy with George Washington University.
