Move it or Lose it partners with MyBones to help people combat osteoporosis
Move it or Lose it is a wonderful programme that helps older people enjoy active, happier lives, with a particular focus on delivering exercise and education to people living with osteopenia or osteoporosis. Their ethos is a perfect match for MyBones as we share the belief that daily physical activity can help you manage and combat osteoporosis. Move it or Lose it allows people to engage safely in physical activity whatever their age or ability. Their national network of carefully trained instructors deliver face-to-face activity classes in local communities. This support is vital as it ensures people don’t feel isolated by their osteoporosis symptoms and the carefully prepared physical activities keep the body as strong and mobile as possible.
Julie Robinson, founder of Move it or Lose it, considers Low-intensity Vibration training to be an important ally for those living with osteoporosis. Always on the search for new and complementary ways to keep her members fit and healthy, Julie was delighted to come across Marodyne LiV. “It’s an ingenious device that definitely has the potential to play its part in our programmes,” says Julie. “I’ve tried it myself and rather like the buzzing sensation: it’s so gentle even our more frail or elderly members can use it well into later life. I’d say it’s a great investment in your long-term health.”
An advocate of natural therapies, Julie loves the fact Marodyne LiV is a drug-free, 100% natural and clinically approved treatment with no side-effects.
Having osteopenia or osteoporosis doesn’t definitely mean your bones will only get worse. In fact, bone tissue can be regenerated if your bone-building cells are given the right stimulation, whatever your age.
Julie recommends starting off with walking or dancing combined with resistance exercises which can be done seated or standing. As her Move it or Lose it clients become stronger and more confident, they are encouraged to work on improving their balance and to try new things. She is delighted to now be able to share Low-intensity Vibration training as an additional, medically certified intervention.
“Key to the success of our Move it or Lose programme is taking time to talk as a group about what other things people can do outside our activity sessions to keep mobile and independent,” says Julie. “Marodyne LiV is a great idea for people to use at home as the 10-minutes-a-day regime encourages them to think about boosting their bones every day. It’s wonderful to have something to use pro-actively to boost your bone health every day.”
