Elderly women suffering from osteopenia can effectively reduce their risk of hip fractures by conducting regular daily exercise.
A new study conducted by researchers in Finland studied 160 elderly women with osteopenia, 84 of whom were assigned to an exercise group and 76 who didn't receive training in how to work out. The findings showed that no hip fractures occurred in the exercise group, compared to five hip fractures in the control group. This is significant because broken hips tend increase mortality risk in elderly women.
The authors noted that 30 months of supervised, mainly home-based
exercising methods followed by voluntary training at home had a positive
long-term effect and should be recommended to all elderly women.
