The Bone Builders Osteoporosis Prevention and Reversal Program is an effective combination of weight bearing, balance and stretching exercises. It also includes nutritional information and support for all stages of osteoporosis. Originally developed from the Strong Living Program of Tufts University, Bone Builders is a free, ongoing program open to all those with a concern for osteoporosis.
When followed diligently, the Bone Builders program and exercises can help the body to increase bone density and reverse the effects of osteoporosis.
