Bone Health & Mindful Physical Therapy



As we get older, bone health is especially important for many. If bones are allowed to deteriorate, the door opens to a multitude of related health problems. Just what strategies are available to improve bone health?

Come join us as we study exercises to improve strength, flexibility, posture, balance, and body awareness. All aspects of this program are derived from evidence-based research in the field of osteoporosis, addressing back and core strengthening exercises, balance exercises for fall prevention, flexibility exercises, posture education, and body awareness training. We will also learn about related nutrition, and osteo drugs used in a holistic way to avoid the need for additional drugs.

Joanne Fagerstrom has been a licensed physical therapist since 1978 and is the owner of Mindful Physical Therapy, LLC, in Wyndmoor, PA. She has also practiced in various Philadelphia-area teaching hospitals, including Temple University Hospital, Pennsylvania Hospital, and Chestnut Hill Hospital.
