Bone Health (V)


Penn’s Village Presents:

Taking Charge of Your Bone Health

With Joanne Fagerstrom, PT

Thursday, February 8, 2024
at 2:00 pm

Via Zoom


Bone Health

There is a lot of confusing information about what to do if you've been diagnosed with osteopenia or osteoporosis. For example, you've probably heard that exercising is important, but what are the best exercises to do? Medical evidence shows that some common exercises, such as sit-ups and toe touches, can actually put you at risk for spinal fracture!

Doing the right exercises, improving your body awareness, and making some lifestyle changes (such as proper diet and not smoking), can significantly help build bone and prevent injury. Participants will also gain a clear understanding of how DXA scans are used to diagnose osteoporosis.

Come to this important workshop taught by Joanne Fagerstrom, PT and see how you can take charge of your bone health. The information presented will be based on the latest, evidence-based guidelines from the medical community.

Joanne Fagerstrom is a bone health specialist and has been a licensed physical therapist for over 45 years. She is the owner of Mindful Physical Therapy, LLC in Lafayette Hill, PA. Ms. Fagerstrom has also practiced in various Philadelphia-area teaching hospitals including Temple University Hospital, Pennsylvania Hospital, and Chestnut Hill Rehabilitation Hospital.
