Improve bone health through self-management. The Osteo-cise class offered at Kapiolani Women's Center and Straub Pearlridge Clinic 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 to strengthen the muscles around the bones at risk for osteoporosis.
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 808-535-7733 (Pali Momi) or 808-527-2588 (Kapiolani).
