Osteo-cise - 5 Week Series

Improve bone health through self-management. The Osteo-cise class offered at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children will help to improve your posture, gait, balance and core strength, and reduce back pain.

This 5-week series is taught by Kapiolani's Bone Health Program exercise physiologist Marcie Nowack, a former University of Hawaii volleyball standout. If you are diagnosed with or at risk for osteoporosis, she will help you safely build muscle strength and flexibility.

The Osteo-cise class is part of the Bone Health Program aimed at prevention and management of osteoporosis. The philosophy behind Osteo-cise is that not just muscle but also bones gain strength from exercise.

Geared to beginners, the 45-minute, low-impact regimen is one that anyone can handle. It involves a lot of gentle stretching and muscle-strengthening techniques.

To register or to make an appointment for a bone density scan to see where you stand in regard to osteoporosis, call 808-527-2588 (Kapiolani).

Also offering one-hour workshop to learn the exercises to practice at home.
