Flexibility

Learn more about flexibility and how to improve this skill using our expert curated exercises.

Having good flexibility can improve your range of motion, allowing you to move your body more easily and in all of the ways you want. It can also decrease the possibility of injuries.

Stretching can be a great way to improve your flexibility. It is also an essential part of a complete exercise program for someone with osteoporosis. However, it is important to know how to stretch the right way. For people with fragile bones, stretching outside of specific ranges of motion or in certain directions can cause unwanted  stress on those areas. Caution should be taken, especially with stretches that include flexion (bending forward at the spine), twisting (turning in a way that the hips are facing a different direction than the shoulders), and extension (bending backwards and arching the spine).

Getting to know your body can be helpful. When stretching, think about where you are tight and how each stretch feels.

Gaining flexibility takes time, and  repeating certain stretches over time can help improve it.
