Osteogenic exercises, derived from the Greek words “osteo” meaning bone and “genic” meaning growth, stimulate bone growth and density. They increase bone-forming cells and stimulate bone tissue production, making them beneficial for individuals with osteoporosis, as they boost bone mineral density and reduce fracture risk.
Osteogenic exercises provide benefits such as reducing bone loss, improving bone density, enhancing physical fitness, and reducing the risk of fractures. These exercises help preserve bone tissue, stimulate calcium deposition, and activate bone-forming cells. They also enhance muscle strength, reaction time, mobility, balance, and coordination. A well-structured exercise regimen can effectively prevent falls and fractures by fortifying muscles and bones and enhancing balance.
