One of the main conditions we treat here at Kiltipper Woods Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy Clinic in Dublin 24 is Osteoporosis. We will Focus on this condition for today’s Blog Entry.

The First thing to mention is that frequent exercise has a very important role in maintaining healthy bones and preventing osteoporosis. Exercise can:

1.    Maintain and actually improve bone density – builds bone strength Increase muscle strength – supports the joints improve coordination and balance – helps to prevent falls

2.    Improve lung and heart fitness – reduces the risk of heart disease

Exercise should be undertaken on a regular and long term basis as the benefits for bone health are only maintained with regular physical activity. It is important to note however that people diagnosed with osteoporosis or recovering from a fracture must consult their doctor and health team before undertaking an exercise program with us. People of Dublin have been using our facilities for the past few years to participate in such Exercise Programmes.

Although traditional physiotherapy can be a great help for this condition, we at Kiltipper Woods Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy Clinic in Dublin 24 can take it a step further than our competitors by integrating our Hydrotherapy pool into such exercise programmes.

This is where we stand out from other physiotherapy practices and competitors in the Dublin area. Hydrotherapy is and can be a great form of exercise for people living with arthritis or osteoporosis, etc. At this point you may be asking how? Let me answer. Hydrotherapy entails whole body exercises that take place in our state of the art 34°C warm water pool.  The warm temperature of the water allows your muscles to relax and eases the pain and stiffness, making it easier to exercise, this is crucial for conditions such as Osteoporosis. Hydrotherapy with one of our physiotherapists can relieve painful joints, increase the range of movement in your joints and improve your muscle strength.
